Scarlett Johansson is in the midst of a heated legal battle against Disney and while her decision to try and overthrow the House of Mouse over allegations of breach of contract has garnered mixed reactions from fans and critics, the Black Widow actress seemingly found an ally in fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe star Elizabeth Olsen who recently broke her silence regarding the matter.
In a recent interview with , Olsen was asked about her reaction when she found out about Scarlett's lawsuit. The 32-year-old star pretty much said that she believes Scarlett can take care of her own business although she made it clear that the actress has her support. She said: "I think she’s so tough and literally when I read that I was like, 'good for you Scarlett.'"
The star of WandaVision was lauded by many for actually speaking her mind regarding the issue when Scarlett's MCU co-stars have chosen to remain silent about it. However, despite her admirable reaction, some people are expressing their concern over Olsen voicing her opinions. Some fans are under the impression that it could potentially lead to her getting on the wrong side of Disney. Check out some of the reactions below:

Since Elizabeth Olsen is now supporting Scarlett Johansson in her Disney suit, me thinks Wanda will be either killed off on Doctor Strange 2 or have some body exchange spell. If the latter, cast Alicia Vikander.— Vera Horcrux (@CoyCrisantemo) August 23, 2021

It's safe to assume that Scarlett's fellow Marvel actors were playing it safe by not trying to meddle with the issue because let's be real, it could jeopardize their respective careers given that they all work for Disney and I'm pretty sure she understands that. Now, it'll be interesting to see if Olsen's statement will end up disastrously for her MCU career but at least she's sticking up for her friend and longtime colleague.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth Olsen will appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
