Elizabeth Olsen, a member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has backed Scarlett Johansson in her legal battle with Disney: ‘I’m not concerned for Scarlett’s sake.
Elizabeth Olsen has spoken out in support of Scarlett Johansson, who is embroiled in a legal battle with Disney over the distribution of her standalone Marvel film Black Widow in both theatres and on Netflix. Scarlett Johansson launched a lawsuit against Marvel’s parent corporation, and Elizabeth is the first MCU performer to back her. People have remarked on how significant MCU performers, such as Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Mark Ruffalo, have remained silent on the matter.
During a Vanity Fair interview with Ted Lasso’s Jason Sudeikis, Elizabeth Olsen opened up. “I think she’s really tough,” the WandaVision lead actor remarked, “and when I read that, I was like, ‘good for you, Scarlett.’”
Scarlett Johansson, who recently welcomed a baby boy, launched a legal claim against Disney earlier this month, prompting Elizabeth Olsen’s comments. According to her, the studio broke her contract by simultaneously releasing Black Widow on Disney+ and in theatres. According to her claim, the streaming release cut off many theatregoers, reducing her chances of receiving payment from the superhero film’s theatrical profit.
Scarlett’s accusations were called “sad and worrisome” by Disney, who accused her of “callous disregard” for the pandemic’s effects. The studio now wants the legal case to be heard in private arbitration. In addition, Disney published data about Black Window’s performance in the new response. According to the studio, as of August 15th, Black Widow had grossed over $367 million globally in box office receipts and over $125 million in streaming and download receipts.
