Scarlett Johansson is suing the Walt Disney Company over the streaming release of ‘Black Widow.’Johansson alleges in the lawsuit that the simultaneous release of Black Widow in theaters and on Disney+ was a breach of contract.

The actress claims in the docs that she agreed her compensation for starring in Black Widow would be largely based on box office receipts generated by the film, and agreed to a theatrical release exclusive to movie theaters in order to maximize her pay. Johansson also claims Disney violated its pledge by releasing Black Widow on Disney+ on July 9, 2021, the same day it was released in theaters; she is demanding a jury trial.
