Disney has strongly criticized Scarlett Johansson's decision to file a $50 million lawsuit against the company. The lawsuit stems from Johansson's claim that her contract was breached when the film "Black Widow" was released simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+. Disney insists that it fully complied with Johansson's contract and argues that her lawsuit is baseless and meritless. They also criticized the actress for showing a lack of empathy towards the ongoing global pandemic and its impact on the entertainment industry.


Disney has responded to Scarlett Johansson's $50 million lawsuit over the release of Black Widow on Disney+, calling it "sad and distressing" and asserting that it has "no merit whatsoever." Johansson filed her lawsuit claiming that the simultaneous theatrical and streaming release resulted in her losing out on substantial box office revenue. Disney countered by stating that they fully complied with Johansson's contract and that the streaming release actually benefited her financially. The lawsuit raises concerns about compensation for major stars in the wake of the pandemic's impact on cinema releases.
