Scarlett Johansson's lawyer criticized Disney, accusing them of making a "misogynistic attack" against the actress. The lawyer filed a lawsuit on behalf of Johansson, claiming that the release of her movie "Black Widow" on Disney+ simultaneously with its theatrical release breached their agreement. The lawsuit argues that this has resulted in significant financial losses for Johansson, as her salary was tied to the movie's box office performance. Disney responded by dismissing Johansson's claims and stating that they had "fully complied" with the contract.

Scarlett Johansson's lawyer has strongly criticized Disney for attempting to move her lawsuit against the company to arbitration. He accused Disney of trying to hide its misconduct and described Disney's initial response to the lawsuit as a misogynistic attack. Disney had filed a motion urging the judge to move the case to private arbitration, arguing that the contract required Johansson's complaints to be handled in that way. Disney also disputed Johansson's claim that she was promised an exclusive theatrical release for her film, Black Widow. Johansson's lawyer expressed determination to present evidence that supports her claims.
