    She has a contract.

    There is no even remotely logical reason that someone would not sort out if they had a contractual recourse in this situation.

    Why would she sit there and let them cheat her? They had a contract and disney broke it to promote a streaming app. She has every right to get mad.

    Wb had to pay legendary a million over breaking it's gvk contract to keep from getting sued now it's disneys turn!

    So what are the details of her contract about release?

    The nature of them(as well as how they are enforced...) is exactly why one would go to court.

    The court will sort that.

    Saying "So what are the details of her contract about release..." is about as pointless as saying "This is how I would sort out this teacher's union contract negotiation..."

    Unless you are actually the one doing the negotiating?

    Your take on it is essentially a total non-issue.

    ...It's literally there in the article. I don't know what more you need.

    WB did that for Wonder Woman 84. They didn't do it for the rest of their movie slate which is why production companies like Legendary and Chris Nolan threw them under the bus.

    I mean everyone has strong opinions on this. But there isn't an precedent for what is happening right now across the board. All of these companies are dealing with something that they have never had to deal with before.

    No, this is what the article actually stated.
    “The suit said Johansson was concerned about such simultaneous releases on Disney+ even before the pandemic. According to the complaint, her representative extracted a promise from Marvel that "Black Widow" would receive a "theatrical release," taken to mean that the film would be only in theaters for a period of time.”

    “Taken to mean” is not a legal statement. If it’s not on paper, than she don’t have a case.

    Not initially, but after the backlash by Nolan and others they agreed to compensate creatives of all movies in question: https://observer.com/2021/01/hbo-max...es-box-office/
    Tolstoy will live forever. Some people do. But that's not enough. It's not the length of a life that matters, just the depth of it. The chances we take. The paths we choose. How we go on when our hearts break. Hearts always break and so we bend with our hearts. And we sway. But in the end what matters is that we loved... and lived.

    So her lawyers are bringing forth a case they know they can't win?

    Come on man, stop taking the piss here.

    You act like that unusual. Lawyers bring frivolous cases everyday. And I think she is really look for a settlement.

    You do realize that this is exactly why folks would go to court, right?

    Unless you have a robe and go to work in a courtroom every day?

    Your personal opinion of exactly what does and what does not constitute something that is legally relevant doesn't really have much weight.
