Disney has reported that the action film Black Widow has earned more than $125 Million on Disney+ Premium Service. The premium tier charges $29 for streaming each title, but the Scarlet Johannsen doesn't get a dime of that because her contract only applies to box office revenue, although Black Widow has made over $350 million at the Box Office. Nothing to shake a stick at. But the actor is suing, claiming releasing the film simultaneously on streaming violates her contract and cost her millions.
