Scarlett is suing Disney for cheating her out of “Black Widow” profits.
Scarlett had some box office bonuses written into her contract, based on how the movie performed. And she says she was guaranteed the movie would get a wide theatrical release.
Instead, they put it out when they knew the theatrical market was still “weak”. Also, they put it on Disney+ at the same time.
Both of these factors led to Scarlett missing out.
Disney says there’s no merit to Scarlett’s claims, adding, “The release of ‘Black Widow’ on Disney+ with Premier Access has significantly enhanced her ability to earn additional compensation on top of the $20 million she has received to date.”
