    Scarlett Johansson vs. Disney: a battle of fair wage

    Following the dual release of the long-anticipated Marvel Studios film Black Widow both in theaters and on Disney premiere access, star Scarlett Johansson has announced that she plans to take legal action against the company for their dishonesty in the film’s release. With talks of Emma Stone and Emily Blunt to potentially follow suit, the legal battle raises questions about how the largest entertainment in the world could shirk their star’s wages, as well as if she even has a case. It is worth noting that Johansson is one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood. If she was not as well known in Hollywood, how might this battle play out? If she were a man, how would the potential reactions from the company and the media coverage of this event change?

    • The Lawsuit is now settled so it is a good time to discuss this topic if reformed. – Sean Gadus 2 months ago

    • Also interesting to explore is the statistics of new income that these streaming platforms (especially Disney+) get now due to Covid and the restrictions. Is this merely a case of a decrease in income or is it a fair wage issue? – scampbell 3 weeks ago

    I think losing one’s voice, both literally and metaphorically, is an inherent horror staple. Harlan Ellison’s “I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream” and its subsequent trope also come to mind.

    Hollywood's Fascination with Silence and Horror

    Legally Blonde was definitely ahead of its time. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen the sequel but the first one remains a classic in my eyes. I agree with other commenters’ points that the story could be updated to account for intersectionality, but I have faith that the upcoming sequel will rise to the occasion and hopefully introduce more bipoc and potentially rectify the un-pc roles lgbtq characters were given thus far.

    Elle Woods for the defence (of femininity)

    With the reboot of Murphy Brown coming soon I think it will be interesting to see how a post-feminist character like Murphy is used in a #MeToo society, especially with Candice Bergen being much older. Will the female newscaster still be sexualized even if she’s much older? Or will she fall into a different category? Time will tell.
