Johansson's contract reportedly stated that Black Widow would be released exclusively in theaters and since her payout was to be based on the film's box office performance, the actress claims making it available on Disney Plus through Premier Access has cost her financially. So far it's been relatively quiet in terms of other Marvel stars speaking out on this topic. Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista responded to the news on Twitter and fellow actor Alec Baldwin also showed support by tweeting, “#TeamScarlett."

Now, Elizabeth Olsen, known for playing Scarlet Witch, has said her piece on the issue. “I think she’s so tough and literally when I read that I was like, ‘Good for you Scarlett," Olsen said during an interview with Vanity Fair. Olsen is known for being vocal and speaking her mind, which has attracted a large fan base. She's an example of greatness in numbers by standing up for your fellow worker or associate. Usually, when things like this happen, other stars remain quiet so they can stay neutral and cover their bases, so it's always morally nice to see someone stick up for someone else despite risking their livelihood. Hopefully, this resolves well for all parties involved.

Black Widow was the character's last canonical outing and it introduced Yelena Belova to the MCU, who may be taking on the mantle of Black Widow. The movie was one of many properties that introduced Marvel Studios into phase four of its universe.

Olsen can be seen on the recent Disney Plus series WandaVision, which is part of Marvel Studios' Phase Four of the MCU timeline. The series followed Wanda Maximoff and Vision following the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
