Scarlett Johansson and Disney have reached an agreement on her remuneration for the film “Black Widow.”
Scarlett Johansson and Walt Disney Studios have reached a deal for the superhero flick “Black Widow” to be streamed for a fee.
Johansson filed a lawsuit against Netflix for streaming the picture on the same day it was released in theaters, stating that it cost her $50 million in bonuses and breached their contract.
She has appeared in eight films as Black Widow and will continue to work with Disney. According to the agreement, Alan Bergman, Chairman of Disney Studios Content, stated she would appear in multiple upcoming films, including one centered on the Tower of Terror.
Disney committed to wait 90 to 120 days for “Black Widow” to be shown in theaters before streaming it on the Disney+ network in early July, according to the lawsuit Johansson filed.
In its first three days, the picture grossed $158 million, with $60 million on Disney+. With $379 million in total ticket sales, it is the lowest since Disney released “The Incredible Hulk” in 2008.
According to industry estimates, “Black Widow” may have grossed over $1 billion in global ticket sales.
The terms of the settlement were not made public, despite Johansson’s request for $80 million on top of her $20 million base wage.
Disney announced last month that the rest of its 2021 films would be displayed in cinemas for 45 days before being streamed.
