Scarlett Johansson sued Disney over the streaming of the movie “Black Widow”

According to The Wall Street Journal, according to the terms of the agreement with Marvel Entertainment, the actress was guaranteed that the premiere of the film would take place only in cinemas; part of the proceeds from ticket sales is a significant share of her feet.

Actress Scarlett Johansson, who played the main role in the film “Black Widow” (2021) based on Marvel comics, filed a lawsuit on Thursday in a Los Angeles (California) court against Disney for launching a screening of the film on its streaming platform simultaneously with the premiere in US cinemas. This was reported on Thursday by The Wall Street Journal.

According to her information, according to the terms of the agreement with the Disney-owned company Marvel Entertainment, Johansson was guaranteed that the premiere of the film would take place only in cinemas; part of the proceeds from ticket sales is a significant share of her fee. “Disney deliberately forced Marvel to violate the agreement without any justification to prevent Ms. Johansson from fully realizing the benefits of her deal with Marvel,” the publication quotes an excerpt from the film actress ‘ lawsuit.

It is noted that the case may become a turning point in the entertainment industry, as it can change the current situation, where preference is given to streaming platforms, which is why many actors suffer losses.

The premiere of the film in the United States about the heroine Natasha Romanoff, who will have to meet with her past and learn about a dangerous conspiracy, took place on July 9. Currently, the film’s box office in the United States has exceeded $156 million, and the film has collected another $160 million in the rest of the world.
