Disney’s response to Scarlett Johansson
Disney did not take long to respond and in the last minutes released an official statement to express itself on the situation. “There is no merit in this filing. The lawsuit is especially sad and distressing because of its callous disregard for the horrific and lingering global effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” indicated the text that made special emphasis that the measure was taken due to the effects of the health crisis.
In addition, the company maintained that Johansson did not lose money on the film. On the contrary, he asserted that his earnings rose and even published how much he paid: “The launch of Black Widow on Disney + with Premier Access has significantly enhanced your ability to earn additional compensation on top of the $ 20 million you have received to date.“.
According to data from The Numbers, Black Widow has collected $ 319,451,514 million (159,351,514 in the United States and 160,100,000 internationally), but their estimates were higher. The delay of its launch in China and the possibility of streaming it seriously affected these figures. Hence, the actress is based on a conflict that just getting started.
