According to the lawsuit, Johansson’s pay was determined by the film’s box office performance.

Scarlett Johansson has sued Disney for breach of contract when the studio released her standalone picture “Black Widow” in theaters and on Disney+ at the same time.

“Disney intentionally induced Marvel’s breach of the agreement, without justification, in order to prevent Ms Johansson from realizing the full benefit of her bargain with Marvel,” the suit, filed on July 29, 2021, read.

According to sources, after initially voicing worries over the multiplatform release, Johansson’s lawyers attempted to renegotiate the actress’s contract with Disney in 2019.

“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,” said John Berlinski, Johansson’s attorney.

‘Black Widow’ had a solid opening weekend in the United States, grossing $80 million, but dropped by 67 percent in its second week, according to reports. Disney stated that it produced $60 million in rentals in its first weekend, with each rental costing $30.
