In what resulted in a back and forth, a company spokesperson in a statement to AFP said the filing had no merit and was “sad and distressing in its callous disregard for the horrific and prolonged global effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
The statement also claimed that the company fully complied with the contract and that the Disney+ streaming release “has significantly enhanced her ability to earn additional compensation on top of the $20M she has received to date.”
Johansson’s lawyer had fired back saying the company had tried to weaponize her success while refusing to keep to terms of their agreement.
In August, Disney filed a motion to move the lawsuit to binding arbitration, a confidential process where both parties can reach an agreement.

“I’m incredibly proud of the work we’ve done together over the years and have greatly enjoyed my creative relationship with the team. I look forward to continuing our collaboration in years to come,” she said.
Similarly, Chairman of Disney Studios Content, Alan Bergman said he was pleased with the mutual agreement reached with both parties and looked forward to working with the star in the future.
“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,” the statement read.
