Marvel Fans Speak Out in Support of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow Lawsuit

Marvel fans are showing their support for Scarlett Johansson as her Black Widow lawsuit unfolds. Earlier today, news broke of the MCU actress filing a suit in Los Angeles Superior Court. The Black Widow star’s representation argues that the release of the movie on Disney+ Premiere Access helped facilitate a breach of contract. John Berlinski is an attorney at Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP which represents Johansson. They are quoted in the Wall Street Journal as saying, “This will surely not be the last case where Hollywood talent stands up to Disney and makes it clear that, whatever the company may pretend, it has a legal obligation to honor its contracts.”

Disney has since published its response to the suit and seemed very intent on not backing down.

Their statement reads, ”There is no merit whatsoever to this filing. The lawsuit is especially sad and distressing in its callous disregard for the horrific and prolonged global effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Disney has fully complied with Ms. Johansson’s contract and furthermore, the release of Black Widow on Disney+ with Premier Access has significantly enhanced her ability to earn additional compensation on top of the $20M she has received to date.”
