End marks the beginning and end of the first battle between star and studio
Angel-Scarlett Johansson reached a settlement with Walt Disney Co. on Thursday in a lawsuit brought by the actress over the debut of “Black Widow” streaming media. This was after recent issues. The first major battle between the studios and the star started to alter the film distribution plan.
Two months ago, Johnson filed a lawsuit in the Los Angeles Superior Court, accusing the Marvel movie’s streaming premiere of violating her contract and depriving her of potential income.
Although the terms of the transaction weren’t disclosed, the parties made a joint statement pledging to continue their cooperation.
Johnson, who played Natasha Romanoff in “Iron Man 2”, stated that she was happy to end their disagreement with Disney.
“I am proud of the work we did together over the years and I enjoy the creative relationship that I have with the team. He said that he looks forward to continuing their cooperation.
President of Disney Studios content, Alan Bergman, expressed happiness that he could reach a consensus.
Bergman stated, “We thank you very much for your contributions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe”
The lawsuit alleges that Johnson’s contract guarantees exclusive releases and his potential income will be linked to the film’s box office performance.
The film was released in theaters as well as through Disney+ streaming.
