Actor Scarlett Johansson has resolved her legal dispute with Disney.

For the unversed, Scarlett had accused Disney of reneging on its promise to do a traditional theatrical release for 'Black Widow' in favour of a simultaneous release on Disney Plus. The suit alleged that the actor lost out on tens of millions of dollars in box office bonuses, reported Variety.
