Disney and Scarlett Johansson have settled their lawsuit

Three months after Scarlett Johansson sued Disney over its streaming release of Black Widow, arguing she stood to lose millions of dollars because her salary was based on the box office performance of the film, the suit has now been settled, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, and The New York Times.

While the terms of the settlement don’t appear to be public, both parties have paid lip service to continuing to work together. Johansson told The Hollywood Reporter that she was “happy to have resolved our differences with Disney,” and “look[s] forward to continuing our collaboration in years to come.”

“We appreciate her contributions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and look forward to working together on a number of upcoming projects, including Disney’s Tower of Terror,” wrote Disney Studios chairman Alan Bergman, according to THR.

When filing the lawsuit, the actress claimed that her contract with the film studio didn’t allow for films to be released on streaming the same day they came to theaters.
