Forgive my ignorance, but don’t actors just get paid for doing their roles? How is the distribution of the film impact her ? Somebody educate me please! Lol 

She's supposed to get "royalties" from the box office income which is smart because she might've have gotten paid a lump sum of $10mil for her role but if the movie grossed $1bil in the box office and her contract states she get 5% from that gross amount, then that's $50mil right there.

Disney fires back:

A Disney spokesperson said, “There is no merit whatsoever to this filing. The lawsuit is especially sad and distressing in its callous disregard for the horrific and prolonged global effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Disney has fully complied with Ms. Johansson’s contract and furthermore, the release of Black Widow on Disney+ with Premier Access has significantly enhanced her ability to earn additional compensation on top of the $20M she has received to date.”

It is a breach regardless of a global pandemic. She even gave them an opportunity to renegotiate and they didn't. They should have done the honourable thing FFS ... YOU ARE BLOODY DISNEY! IF WE CAN'T BELIEVE IN YOUR INTEGRITY ... THEN HOW THE F ARE WE GOING TO BELIEVE WE WILL FIND OUR DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH YOU MOT(&(*&#(*(@ FU(&()*&*(&^&*(

The real question is whether she gets a cut of the profits from streaming. If so, her claim doesn’t have merit. The movie would have made less if it was released exclusively in theatres.
