Avengers director of Scarlett Johansson’s “anxious” treatment

Avengers: Endgame director Joe Russo spoke out against Scarlett Johansson’s “critical” treatment of The Walt Disney Company for Black Widow to release controversy.

The Marvel movie was postponed until last year due to the pandemic, when Disney released it in theaters and on Disney + via Premium Access on the same day. Johansson filed a lawsuit because her salary was tied to the box office bill and not flowing income, and settlement was reached out of court.

Talking about the whole scenario in an interview with Geek’s NestRusso shared: “We are certainly concerned about the trend in the market, which is moving away from artists. There has been a lot of value in technology companies engaged in content creation, but there are also some disadvantages to that.

“And those disadvantages include tech companies like Netflix and Apple and Amazon having much deeper pockets than studios, and they can pay more and that starts to scare the studios.

“So the studios have a conservative reaction, and they’re trying to downplay their need for stars. They’re trying to force IP to be their star, and they’re also trying to underpay and reduce the need for stars in their projects.

“That was really not a good way for them to handle that situation. It bothered us as artists. Scarlett is a good friend of ours, and we were discouraged by how it was handled. We’re glad it’s resolved.”

Russo also predicted that moviegoers would start “craving new ideas” as studios and businesses “become more pedantic and factory-like with the execution of their current IP,” and plans to lead that charge by continuing to invest in a lower budget with fresh. ideas like All Everywhere All at once.

Black Widow is available to stream Disney + now.
