Black Widow: Disney, Scarlett Johansson settle lawsuit
Walt Disney and Hollywood actress, Scarlett Johansson, have settled a legal dispute over the release of the Marvel superhero movie Black Widow.
Johansson sued Disney two months ago, accusing the entertainment conglomerate of breaching her contract when it offered the movie on its Disney+ streaming service while it was still showing in cinemas.
She said the decision meant that she was deprived of potential earnings.
Details of the deal between Disney and Johansson have not been disclosed.
“I’m very pleased that we have been able to come to a mutual agreement with Scarlett Johansson regarding Black Widow,” Alan Bergman, content chairman for Disney Studios, said in a statement.
“We appreciate her contributions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and look forward to working together on a number of upcoming projects, including Disney’s Tower of Terror,” he added.
