Scarlett Johansson, the leading actor in the Marvel movie “Black Widow,” recently filed a proceeding against Disney in the Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday.
Johansson said in the lawsuit that her agreement with Disney and Marvel Entertainment guaranteed an exclusive theatrical release and that her salary was largely dependent on the film’s box office performance.
The proceedings said, “Disney deliberately induced a breach of Marvel’s contract without justifying it to prevent Ms. Johansson from realizing the full benefits of the transaction with Marvel.
After the lawsuit was filed, Disney countered a strong statement, and the move sent waves in the entertainment community, spreading rumors that Emma Stone, the star of ‘Cruela’, who made similar material, is considering filing her own suit.
The date and time releases used to debut “Mulan” and the recent “Jungle Cruise” have suspended the movie for several months due to the initial ongoing coronavirus infection.
Let’s see why stars like Johannsson just make money with streaming releases.
According to Time, a mega-blockbuster movie starring a well-known star may be eligible for a back-end transaction where a star who makes more than a certain amount of money receives a second salary.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is well known for using the same practices as Robert Downey Jr. negotiating the bumpy deals that have been consistently on the top-wage list over the years.
Scarlett Johansson, 36, said in court documents that movie salaries are similarly linked to box office achievements, theatrical release is guaranteed by contract, and many viewers watch movies at home. And, thanks to the choice, I left $ 50 million from the theater, despite the impressive box office achievements of the movie anyway.
Scarlett Johansson could have missed a lot of money, but management wouldn’t.
It’s not common for streaming services to share accurate numbers, but shortly after announcing that they bought a movie at Disney+ and earned $60 million per variety, the stock price rose. The date and date announcement of “Black Widow” also raised the share price, which means that management and shareholders will be paid.
This success arguably puts a pocket on the same Disney mogul, with CEO Bob Peck and his colleagues overseeing Disney+. Disney+ has been working hard to grow by leaps and bounds, developing a few shows dedicated to flowing titles such as ‘Seoul’ and ‘Who’, which are part of Marvel’s Star Wars. Both labels are profitable owned by this company.
