Scarlett Johansson's recent contract dispute with Disney and their thunderbolt response that she had 'callous disregard for the suffering of the pandemic' showed Hollywood's power players on the brink of civil war. The LA Times suggested the fight, and Disney's diss at Marvel's biggest female star, was really about a bigger question: "how should stars and filmmakers be paid for movies and TV shows now that the business model is shifting quickly from one based on box office and television ratings to one reliant on online subscriptions?".
