Scarlett Johansson and Disney resolve bitter Black Widow dispute

Scarlett Johansson and Disney have resolved their explosive contract dispute over the release of the movie Black Widow, although neither is revealing how.

The bitter legal feud saw the actor's lawyer label Disney "misogynistic", while the company in turn labelled Johansson's lawsuit "sad and distressing" as well as suggesting she was greedy for wanting more than US$20 million for the Marvel film.

Johansson's lawsuit argued Disney had breached its contract with her by releasing Black Widow on the Disney Plus streaming service on the same day it premiered in cinemas.

But now she and the company have released a statement saying the matter is settled.

"I am happy to have resolved our differences with Disney," stated Johansson (via The Hollywood Reporter).

"I'm incredibly proud of the work we've done together over the years and have greatly enjoyed my creative relationship with the team. I look forward to continuing our collaboration in years to come."

A spokesperson for the Walt Disney Co said the company was happy with he result and looking forward to working together with Johansson again.

"I'm very pleased that we have been able to come to a mutual agreement with Scarlett Johansson regarding Black Widow," said Alan Bergman, Disney Studios chairman.

"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."

The lawsuit was filed in July and became a very public battle, with various celebs and agencies including WandaVision star Elizabeth Olsen throwing their support behind Johansson, although her other Marvel co-stars failed to publicly back her.
