Scarlett Johansson took Hollywood by storm on Thursday when we learned the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Natasha Romanoff is suing the Walt Disney Company for allegedly breaching its contract with the hybrid release of Black Widow. Another major leading actress linked to Disney’s Premier Access model reportedly turned to her lawyer after Johansson’s move: Cruella’s Emma Stone.

Scarlett Johansson plans to take Walt Disney Studios to court because of the company’s decision to release the Marvel film in theaters and Disney+ Premier Access on the same day in July. Although Black Widow took home a pandemic-era best with its opening weekend, the Marvel film fell short after that, dropping a troubling 67% in its second weekend in theaters.

Scarlett Johansson’s contract reportedly promised an exclusive theatrical release and a backend salary based upon the box office numbers that has now fallen short due to Disney’s new movie release business model. We don’t know the details of Emma Stone’s contract with the House of Mouse for Cruella, but according to The Hollywood Reporter editor Matt Belloni (via Screen Rant), the Oscar-winner is “weighing her options” in terms of legal action against the company.

Cruella was also chosen to hit theaters on May 28 at the same time as its Disney+ Premier Access release for $29.99. The movie made $221 million worldwide – much lower than similar live-action Disney films have done in theaters prior. 2014’s Maleficent, for example, made $758 million worldwide, and its 2019 sequel Maleficent: Mistress of Evil took home $491 million worldwide.
