The Marvel fandom is still shaking following the jaw-dropping lawsuit Scarlett Johansson filed against Disney over Black Widow's release model. If you haven't been keeping up with the news as of late, the Natasha Romanoff actress claims that the House of Mouse committed a violation of their contract which originally saw Black Widow get an exclusive theater release. As most of you may already know, the film was simultaneously released via Disney+'s Premier Access which affected the film's box office standing.

After the issue blew up, some fans questioned the silence of Scarlett's fellow Marvel actors who have yet to express their support for their MCU co-star. However, WandaVision's Elizabeth Olsen made it clear that she supports Johansson's decision to file a lawsuit against the company.

In a recent Vanity Fair feature, Olsen was asked about her reaction when she found out about Scarlett's lawsuit. According to the MCU star, she's not worried about it but 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.'"

I'm glad that Olsen had the courage to speak up about the issue and support her former Marvel colleague when Scarlett’s co-stars remained silent all this time. On the other hand, I can’t help but feel worried about her own working relationship with Disney potentially getting tarnished now that she made it public that Johansson has her back. I mean, nobody dares to get on the wrong side of Disney after all so it’ll be interesting to see if Lizzie’s comments will affect her relationship with the House of Mouse.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth Olsen will appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
