“The first thing that anyone should understand about her suit alleging she was short-changed by the Black Widow release is that the actress (or at least her reps) wanted this dispute to go public in a big way.” Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Black Widow’ Lawsuit Is Game-Changing, But May Be Legally Weak. (It’s definitely interesting. At issue is Disney’s decision to stream the movie at the same time as it was released in theaters. Scarlett gets a cut of the theater revenue, but not the streaming dough.)
