The demand for Scarlett Johansson to Disney could cause another renowned actress to follow the same path. Matt Belloni, former editor of The Hollywood Reporter and a reliable source of the film industry, said Emma Stone is considering undertaking legal action against Disney (via Screen Rant). The reason, as surely already intuited, has to do with the premiere of cruel in Disney Plus.
The situation of Emma Stone, apparently, is very similar to that of Scarlett Johansson. An important part of her salary depended on the success of Cruella on the big screen. However, the fact of it also offer it through the Premier Access program of Disney Plus, decreased the possibility of obtaining more income. In the case of Johansson, his demand indicates that Disney did not renegotiate his contract to adapt him to the new premiere strategy of black widow, thus breaking with a previous promise.
"It is said that Emma Stone, the star From Cruella, is analyzing her options," Belloni revealed. Likewise, she considers that Emily Blunt, protagonist of Jungle Cruise, could also join the Crusade against Disney. The above, however, is a mere speculation of the journalist, because with Blunt, some parameters that would give rise to a lawsuit are also fulfilled. We must remember that Jungle Cruise, as well as Cruella and Black Widow, premiered simultaneously in cinemas and Disney Plus.
Another point to highlight the Belloni Report is that Scarlett Johansson would have the support of a large number of actors, including Emma Stone. This could be key during the legal battle with Disney, at least on the media issue. In addition, the response of the company to demand the only thing he encouraged is that more people were against Disney. The controversial communicated let Johansson was indifferent to the tragedy that caused the pandemic.
"They have accused without shame and falsely to Ms. Johansson of being insensitive to the Global Pandemic of the Covid to make it look like someone that they and I know that it is not. The company included its salary in its press release in an attempt to convert its success as an artist and businesswoman in a weapon, as if that were something that should be ashamed, "said the legal representative . Will Emma Stone submit a lawsuit? We will know it soon.
