Disney’s decision to release Black Widow on Disney Plus simultaneously as it hit cinemas has sparked a legal battle with the Marvel movie’s star Scarlett Johansson.
In a lawsuit filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, attorneys for Johansson allege that the actress’s contract was breached when the studio opted not to debut the film exclusively in theaters, a move they claim depressed ticket sales for the Avengers spinoff. Much of Johansson’s compensation was tied to the box office performance of Black Widow — if it hit certain benchmarks, bonuses would kick in.
Disney has announced that Disney live-action film Cruella and Marvel Studios Black Widow will be released simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access (which is usually around a $30 extra charge on top of subscriptions) in most Disney+ markets on Friday, May 28th 2021 and on Friday, July 9th 2021 respectively. Black Widow had already been delayed from November 2020 to May 2021 but has now been pushed back to July 9th.
The upcoming “Hawkeye” series at Disney Plus has cast a number of key roles, Variety has confirmed.
Along with series leads Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld the series will also star Vera Farmiga, Florence Pugh, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Alaqua Cox, and Zahn McClarnon.
Disney have announced more release date changes, and has confirmed that for the time being no tiles are heading to Disney+ instead of theaters like they did recently with Mulan. And that includes Pixar’s Soul which is currently sticking to its Nov. 20 release against MGM’s No Time To Die.
Warner Bros.’ domestic box office for Tenet, which only made $6.7M in its second stateside weekend (technically 3rd) is an indicator of this, of course, with New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco closures being a further stumbling block. As such, exhibition sources told Deadline that Disney is pondering a theatrical release date move for Black Widow off its current Nov. 6 date. There’s no concrete idea of where it goes, whether its somewhere in December or next year yet. It could easily move to Marvel’s The Eternals release date of Feb. 12 next year.
