Scarlett Johansson might change the way things are done in Hollywood with her lawsuit on Disney, says an agent
Due to her movie Black Widow by Marvel being released simultaneously in theatres and Disney Plus, actress Scarlett Johansson has filed a lawsuit against Disney saying that this movie made her lose around 50 million dollars.
Actors have bonuses tied to a certain level of earnings of the movie. According to her lawyer, Johansson has faced loss. According to a Hollywood agent, the actress has taken a brave step that might change the way a game is played in Hollywood.
The actress is receiving support from police and agents. According to a report by Variety, she could make an impact and change things for good. Her co-star Dave Bautista supported her along with Alec Baldwin who tweeted, "Team Scarlett". People in the industry are rooting for her.
The influence and power she has amassed have put a big studio like Disney on the spot. Women in Film and Time's Up have supported her and called Disney's response a 'gendered character attack'.
