Dave Bautista responded to Scarlett Johansson’s lawsuit with Disney for Black widow
Earlier this week, Scarlett Johansson went public with her lawsuit against Disney regarding her latest film. Black widow, alleging that the studio violated its contract with its simultaneous release to Disney Plus via Premier Access in conjunction with its theatrical release. Despite an impressive opening weekend, the film experienced massive drops after its debut, which the National Association of Theater Owners (NATO) attributed to Disney’s Premier Access strategy.
As the story fell on the lawsuit of Scarlett Johansson, his partner Avengers: infinity war other Endgame co-star Dave Bautista responded. Interestingly, he also expressed negative sentiment against Disney regarding a possible independent project of his own:
I told them they should have done a #Drax movie but noooooo! 🤷🏻♂️ https://t.co/uuvkCU5vAI

It’s interesting to hear that Dave Bautista had an interest in a standalone movie for his character, Drax the Destroyer. It’s also worth noting that this isn’t the first time the actor has voiced his issues with the role of his character and with Disney herself. In 2018, following the firing of director James Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Dave Bautista became perhaps the most vocal opponent of the Guardians issued against Disney’s decision.
Dave Bautista is set to reprise his role as Drax in Thor: love and thunder and in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. What do you think of Dave Bautista’s response to Scarlett Johansson’s lawsuit against Disney regarding the release of Black widow? Turn off the sound below in the comments.
