According to a lawsuit her attorneys filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Scarlett agreed that her compensation would “largely be based on” cash office “receipts” on the condition that Disney release the movie exclusively in theaters.

But that certainly did not happen when the film was simultaneously released on Disney +, a move that Scarlett’s lawyer says was an attempt to increase their stock price.

“It’s no secret that Disney releases movies like Black widow directly on Disney + to increase subscribers and thereby increase the company’s stock price — and that it hides behind COVID-19 as a pretext to do so, ”Scarlett’s attorney, John Berlinski, told BuzzFeed News.

Disney, on the other hand, says there is no “merit” in bringing a lawsuit, calling the lawsuit “sad and disturbing in its terrible disregard for the terrible and long-lasting global effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Although Disney is fighting back against Scarlett, lots of stars have spoken out in her defense, including Jamie Lee.

“I recently saw her own the screen as Black widow, demanding revenge on a powerful figure who manipulates (emphasis on man) women to fight for him, “Jamie Lee wrote as part of a tribute inThe 100 most influential people of the time in 2021.

She continued, “And then I saw her brilliant response to a manipulation in reality (same weight) as she filed a breach of contract case against the studio and claimed her decision to release the film simultaneously in cinemas and on streaming costs her significant salary loss.”

“Whether it’s an assassin with a conscience, an actor with an emotional center, or, right after giving birth to his second child, a tough mom, the message is clear: Don’t fuck with this mother bear,” Jamie Lee concluded.
