They’re eating each other.
Scarlett Johansson’s lawyer has accused Disney of a “misogynistic attack” as well as attempting to “hide misconduct” by seeking arbitration.
Last month, it was announced that Johansson was initiating legal proceedings against the company.
The filing, which was reviewed by The Independent, alleged that Johansson’s compensation for the movie was “largely based” on Black Widow’s box office performance, which was substantially lower than projected.
In response to the suit, Disney issued a statement claiming that “there is no merit whatsoever to this filing” and that the company had “fully complied” with her contract.
Yesterday (21 August), Disney filed a motion to force Johansson into a private arbitration.
Johansson’s lawyer John Berlinski issued a scathing statement in response.
“After initially responding to this litigation with a misogynistic attack against Scarlett Johansson, Disney is now, predictably trying to hide its misconduct in a confidential arbitration,” he said.
