There has been no statement in support of Scarlett Johansson from her Marvel Cinematic Universe co-stars yet. Perhaps their potentially continuing association with Disney for upcoming Marvel projects makes them reluctant to offend the media giant?
Scarlett Johansson recently sued Disney, the parent company of Marvel Studios, for choosing the simultaneous release model for her standalone Black Widow movie.
She claims in the lawsuit that the film’s box office performance suffered due to concurrent release on Disney+. The Wall Street Journal, which broke the story, reports that Johansson lost as much as $50 million in bonuses due to the film’s release on streaming.
Disney has come down hard, taking exception to the lawsuit that it claims has “no merit whatsoever. “The lawsuit is especially sad and distressing in its callous disregard for the horrific and prolonged global effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the statement continued.
Whatever the truth, it is strange to see not a single Marvel actor coming to Johansson’s defence. While Marvel Studios’ boss Kevin Feige is said to be “angry and embarrassed” as per The Hollywood Reporter, even he has not spoken publicly.
Actor Elliot Page had said on Twitter that Pratt should address the accusations against Hillsong Church. He elaborated in another tweet later that read, “If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organization that hates a certain group of people,
don’t be surprised if someone simply wonders why it’s not addressed. Being anti LGBTQ is wrong, there aren’t two sides. The damage it causes it severe. Full stop. Sending love to all.”
Soon after the allegations came to light, bigwigs like Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, Jeremy Renner, and James Gunn expressed their support for Pratt.
