American actress Scarlett Johansson filed a lawsuit against “Walt Disney”, Thursday, in which she said that the company violated the contract signed between them, when it released the movie “Black Widow” (Black Widow), on its platform, “Disney +”, coinciding with its release in theaters. .
The Marvel-produced film explores the life of black widow professional killer and spy Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), and her struggle with her past before joining the Avengers, and defending planet Earth.
The lawsuit, which the actress filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court, stated that this policy of dual-release, which reduced her wages, which depends in part on box office revenues, was supposed to be released exclusively in cinemas.
The company began showing the film on July 9, in theaters, and broadcast it at the same time through the “Disney +” service, for $ 30. The company has been testing the hybrid casting system for some time, and for some films during the Corona pandemic, in an attempt to boost its live broadcasting service.
