Scarlett Johansson recently discussed the lawsuit she was in with Disney over her Black Widow pay.

Earlier this year, Disney notably dropped Black Widow in theaters and on the streaming service simultaneously. This move resulted in Scarlett Johansson suing Disney over her pay on the film, claiming it breached her contract.

The Black Widow star eventually settled with Disney and is set to produce a future Marvel Studios project. Scarlett Johansson recently looked back on the lawsuit while speaking with AP:

“I think it’s important in general to know your own worth and stand up for yourself. In this industry, I’ve been working for such a long time. It’s been almost thirty years. There’s so much that has shifted over those thirty years. I think sometime before, maybe, you would feel, ‘Oh gosh. If I stand up for myself, I might never work again. Or I might be blacklisted in some way.’ Thankfully, that’s changing in the zeitgeist. And honestly, I think that happening in an industry that’s as huge and universal as the entertainment industry is really important if I lead that charge.”

Here is the synopsis for Black Widow:

In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller “Black Widow,” Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.

Directed by Cate Shortland from a script written by Eric Pearson based on a story by Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson, the Marvel film stars Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, O-T Fagbenle, Olga Kurylenko, Ray Winstone, Olivier Richters, and Rachel Weisz.

The film is available on home video and Disney Plus. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the Marvel Cinematic Universe and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
