The ‘Black Widow’ star filed papers to sue Disney in July for an alleged $50 million in lost earnings, as she claimed their decision to release the Marvel movie on Disney+ at the same time as its theatrical release violated the terms of their contract and impacted negatively on her salary.

However, the 36-year-old has now accepted a yet to be disclosed deal. She also plans to continue working with Disney for “years to come”.

Scarlett said in a statement, “I am happy to have resolved our differences with Disney. I’m incredibly proud of the work we’ve done together over the years. I have greatly enjoyed my creative relationship with the team. I look forward to continuing our collaboration in years to come.”

Disney Studios chairman Alan Bergman is also pleased that the company now has a new mutual agreement with the actress

“I’m very pleased that we have been able to come to a mutual agreement with Scarlett Johansson regarding ‘Black Widow’. 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’.”

Scarlett had earlier claimed her salary for “Black Widow” was tied to how well the movie performed at the box office.

However, Disney later hit back to insist they would be compensating for the lost revenue, and said there was “no merit” in Scarlett’s lawsuit.

“Black Widow” grossed $80 million in domestic box office opening weekend. It also grossed another $78 million overseas and $60 million from home purchases on the streaming platform.
