    Johansson has already gotten like $20 million for this movie alone. You could live your whole life on $20 million (never have to work ever again). But, I guess that nothing is ever enough to some people.

    It was my initial reaction too, but after actually reading some articles, it was “The House of Mouse” breaching contract (which they admitted) whether it was $5 or $50M (what she would supposedly have made) they screwed her over. She’s not the first and won’t be the last. She’s just one of a few celebrities to call BS on Disney. And you have Emma Stone debating if she’ll follow suit.

    Even Kevin Feige was against the day-and-date release. He was very pissed off with them. So he’s very much on the side of Scar-Jo

    It’s going to get ugly in the coming days/weeks.

    Apparently other actors will follow suit. Where the hell have these people been living these past 18 months? The pandemic has wreaked havoc on the industry. Theaters have closed down, hundreds of employees have lost their jobs and many movies reported losses because they were never released thearically. And all Scarlett Johansson cares about is the extra millions she can't make. Where was this sensitivy on her behalf when Disney was furloughing employees?

    It takes a very selfish greedy and deplorable person to get me to defend Disney over a matter. So congrats to Scarlett and every other actor who follows her lead here. Thank goodness Gal Gadot didn't make such a big fuss when her Wonder Woman movie came out on HBO Max. She just quietly settled on a compensation with WB. Because she knew there were more important problems in the world.

    To answer your question:



    Did a Google search: Johansson's net worth is estimated at around $165 million. So, she ain't got no mortgage... on her three luxury homes. Student loan debt? Forget it. Even if she had one, she could pay it all off in one single payment (rather than the enternity that it takes most folks to pay it off).

    Ah, thanks. She's clearly a person not detatched from what's been going on in the world the past year and a half!

    And keep in mind she made a lot of her money (I won't say most of it because we can't know for sure) thanks to the very studio she's suing right now. The studio that could have released Black Widow on Disney+ straight away in May 2020 and deprived her of any bonuses. Instead they waited for over a year until they released it in theaters in order to appease her.

    I don't mean to blow a gasket over this, but I have many friends in the theater I usually go to. Their complex opens for a few weeks, business is down because many people are hesitant to go and then it closes down again when cases rise. It's been a very stressful and difficult period for them and they don't know if they'll still be employed next month. This is a real crisis, the likes of which Hollywood elites like Scarlett or Emma Stone can't relate to.

    God, I feel dirty defending Disney.
