It is being reported that after Disney announced Black Widow was opening in theaters and going to Disney+ at the same time Scarlett Johansson made a request. She asked for $80 million. This in addition to the $20 million she was paid to do the movie would have brought her salary to $100 million. How she came up with the figure was based on the assumption Black Widow was going to make $1.2 billion at the box office in pre-pandemic times. Disney never counter offered so she was paid her starting salary of $20 million. Disney reportedly felt Scarlett, stands to make even more from other revenue streams. Black Widow made $372 million worldwide and $60 million from Disney + With Shang-Chi opening exclusively in theaters for 45 days before going to streaming services, does Scarlett have a case?
