“I recently watched her own the screen as the Black Widow, who exacts revenge on a powerful figure who manipulates (emphasis on man) women to fight for him,” Jamie wrote. “And then I saw her brilliant response to a real-life manipulation (same emphasis), when she filed a breach-of-­contract lawsuit against the studio, alleging its decision to release the film simultaneously in theaters and on streaming cost her substantial losses in pay.”

Jamie added, “Whether as an assassin with a conscience, an actor with an emotional center or, having just given birth to her second child, a fierce mother, the message is clear: Don’t f–k with this mama bear.”

In case you missed the previous news, Scarlett is suing Disney over a financial dispute with the release of her standalone movie Black Widow. Scarlett claims that she’s missing out on profits that she would have earned if the movie was given an exclusive theatrical release, instead of the hybrid release it was given in both theaters and Disney+ Premier Access.
