Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: BLACK WIDOW DODGE

Disney’s bout with real-life Avenger Scarlett Johansson will not end well. Disney won’t win the battle, or the war. Disney learned during the pandemic that streaming blockbusters on Disney+ is a moneymaker. And it deserves credit. However, weaponizing it to skirt royalties to creative talent is penny wise and pound foolish and unworthy of Disney. It will win no fans and make too many enemies. The best solution for Disney is to make a gracious retreat and acknowledge that it will be updating its policies for the post-COVID world in which simultaneous theatrical and streaming releases will benefit everyone.
