The conflict between Scarlett Johansson and Disney caused by the box office failure of Black Widow put the new film by the Russo brothers for Marvel Studios on standby
After the hard blow that the obvious box office failure from the movie starring Scarlett Johansson, the famous actress, who played the character of Natasha Romanoff, made a risky but brave Lawsuit against Disney for the premiere of Black Widow (2021) on the streaming platform of the aforementioned company, since the same actress accuses her of having broken her contract in which supposedly the exclusive premiere of said film in the cinemas was specified, and not simultaneously in both media, as in the end it was done.
This complicated situation between Scarlett Johansson and Disney made the difficult return of the character for any future project in Marvel Studios, mainly due to crushing cross statements between the company, the actress and her team. However, apparently not only has the fate of the beloved superheroine been affected, but it has also had a strong impact on the new project that the Russo brothers were negotiating to direct for Marvel Studios.
The important work the Russo brothers have done throughout the last decade for the construction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. First was the surprise of the unforgettable sequel to Captain America the First Avenger (2011), Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which was and continues to be classified by many as one of the best films of the UCM.
After the great reception that the duo of directors had both by the public and by critics, Kevin Feige together with the team of producers of Marvel Studios and Disney decided to entrust them with the vital responsibility of bringing to the big screen a project as difficult as Captain America: Civil War (2016), a film slightly inspired by the mythical Civil War comics saga, written by Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Kingsman: Secret Service, Wanted, Wolverine: Old Man Logan) and drawn by Steve McNiven (Wolverine: Old Man Logan); which ended up working.
The Russo’s success in the previous two films led to fame and Marvel Studios and Disney made the decision to give them the opportunity to direct the next two Avengers movies, Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019), which served as a event as a tribute to the 10 years of the UCM. Infinity War was rated as one of the best movies in the superhero genre of recent years and Endgame broke box office records, ranking for a time as the highest grossing film in history, until he got over it again Avatar (2009) by James Cameron after its re-release in the United States.
After the end of Phase 3 of the UCM, the Russo decided to hang the cape for a while and, although to this day it is unknown for what new project they were negotiating, the portal The Wall Street Journal maintains that your conversations with Disney and Marvel Studios they had braked due to the enormous uncertainty that the simultaneous release format of the film of Black widow (2021) directed by Cate Shortland, director of Lore (2012).
According to a new report from the portal The Wall Street Journal found on the website of The Ronin, Anthony and Joe Russo would have reached a “stalemate” in their negotiations to direct a new movie by Marvel Studios after Avengers: Endgame, due to the context that the Johansson’s lawsuit against Disney.
Next, the following words were the ones that were said throughout the report previously named:
“From the demand, brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, directors of Avengers: Endgame from Marvel Studios, the highest grossing movie of all time, came to a standstill in negotiations to direct another Marvel movie. The Johansson dispute left them unsure how their next film will be distributed and how they would be paid, according to people familiar with the matter. “
In short, due to dispute about premieres and payments that came to light for the dispute over the premiere of Black Widow (2021), the negotiations stopped and to this day it is unknown if it would be possible to be retaken or not. Everything points to what Disney would have pressured Marvel Studios to release Black Widow in theaters and on Disney + simultaneously, hurting so the bonuses from Scarlett Johansson linked to the box office from the tape e breaching the contract in which an exclusive theatrical release was promised.
Finally, it should be noted that the same Kevin Feige gave his unconditional support to Johansson in the face of the tense situation and, despite everything, it is worth mentioning that the same actress would have received a considerable sum of economic benefit for the premiere on platforms of the first and only solo movie of the Russian spy.
