It seems like Scarlett Johansson and Disney cannot really let go of each other with over 10 years of history between the two. While the Black Widow star took to suing the parent company over the alleged breach of contract earlier this year, everything seems to be settled now.
If you haven’t been following, here’s a quick recap of what has gone down over the past few months. The 36-year-old star who plays Black Widow or Natasha Romanoff’s character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe recently sued the Walt Disney Company for breaching the Black Widow contract.
Johansson and her legal team alleged that while the actor was promised a full exclusive theatrical release, Disney has broken this by releasing Black Widow simultaneously on their streaming platform Disney+. This further led to Black Widow experiencing the highest crash that the MCU has ever experienced when it comes to theatrical views in history.

After settling the dispute out of court, Johansson also said that she is proud of the work she has done with Disney and looks forward to more of it.
