According to what The Hollywood Reporter found, Scarlett Johansson seems to have solved all her problems with Disney, because, it seems, the actress is already confirmed in a secret future project for Marvel.
During the 35th edition of the Annual American Cinematheque Awards, the artist even spoke to some reporters about her career and highlighted the reconciliation with the company that owns the MCU, after the lawsuit she filed for an eventual breach of contract.
“I had some of the best moments of my career working for both studios,” she commented. “I am so excited to be able to continue my work with Disney and my family at Marvel,” she said.
Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, later confirmed Johansson’s participation in this secret project and also reinforced that this is not something involving Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow. According to speculation, the actress could be part of the executive production team and thus continue her relationship with Marvel for a few more years.
Scarlett Johansson sued Disney: understand the details of what happened
After Black Widow debuted in theaters and also on Disney+ through the Premier Access feature, the actress decided to sue Disney for breach of contract, saying she felt aggrieved by its share of box office profits. According to Johansson, with the availability of the film in streaming, something that had not been previously agreed, the process directly interfered in the public’s preference for going to the cinema.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Disney created Premier Access so that their productions would not have lost revenue. With an addition to the current Disney+ consumer subscription, several productions could be enjoyed before most people. Despite that, with a million dollar deal, everything was resolved later.
