Scarlett Johansson and Disney have settled her blockbuster #BlackWidow lawsuit.
“I am happy to have resolved our differences with Disney. I'm incredibly proud of the work we've done together over the years and have greatly enjoyed my creative relationship with the team," Johansson said in a statement.
"I look forward to continuing our collaboration in years to come," Johansson added.
“I’m very pleased that we have been able to come to a mutual agreement with Scarlett Johansson regarding 'Black Widow,'" said Disney Studios Content chairman Alan Bergman in a statement.
We appreciate her contributions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and look forward to working together on a number of upcoming projects, including Disney’s 'Tower of Terror,'" Bergman continued.
Johansson had accused Disney of reneging on its promise to do a traditional theatrical release for “Black Widow,” in favor of a simultaneous release on Disney Plus. The suit alleged that she lost out on tens of millions of dollars in box office bonuses.
Disney had fired back in unusually personal terms at the A-list star, accusing her of displaying “callous disregard for the horrific and prolonged global effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
