International actress Scarlett Johansson and the international Disney film production company have settled a lawsuit brought by the actress against the company, alleging that she violated her contract by releasing the “Black Widow” movie on the company’s streaming service despite its promise of a “big cinema release,” according to the Hollywood Reporter and Forbes. .

Johansson said she was “happy” that “differences with Disney” had been “resolved” and looked forward to “continuing our cooperation in the coming years.” Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but compensation exceeded $40 million, according to Deadline.

Johansson had demanded $80 million in damages in addition to her $20 million film wages from Disney before the lawsuit was filed.

Disney Studios chief content officer Alan Bergman said he was glad they had reached a “mutual agreement” with Johansson and “look forward to working together” on future projects such as Tower of Terror.

Scarlett Johansson filed the lawsuit against Disney in July, claiming that the company diverted audiences from movie theaters to the streaming service, hurting her wages, which was based in part on ticket sales. Disney reported that the actress has already received $20 million for her role in the film and could get more money from Disney+.

The lawsuit highlighted discontent in the film sector, as studios decided to release films on streaming services in light of the general closure caused by the Corona pandemic. Black Widow has grossed $379 million at the global box office so far. Disney also announced that the movie generated $60 million in purchases through Premier Access subscriptions on its Disney+ streaming service.
