Scarlett Johansson's 'Black Widow' helped Disney collect $125 million in online revenue, according to Reuters.
The Walt Disney (DIS.N) said this in a court filing on Friday getting sued by Scarlett Johansson who plays the lead role in the movie.
The actress last month sued Disney alleging that the company breached her contract when it offered the movie on streaming at the same time it played in theaters.
The entertainment company, in the filing, has countered Johansson's request for a civil trial in Los Angeles by asking for the suit to be sent to arbitration in New York.
Johansson's suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, argued that the dual release strategy of "Black Widow" had reduced her compensation.
Disney had said there was "no merit" to the lawsuit, adding that online release of the film "significantly enhanced her (Johansson's) ability to earn additional compensation on top of the $20 million she has received to date.”
