As predicted during last week’s episode, major news broke after we recorded but before the episode was published. In this case, Scarlett Johansson filed a lawsuit against Disney for breach of contract. The dispute hinges on the decision by Disney to release Black Widow on Disney+ at the same time as its theatrical release. We have all the details and the increasingly ugly-back-and-forth between the two groups.
We also got the first pictures and a release date for Amazon’s upcoming Lord of the Rings series. We talk about what we hope to see from the series and some of our concerns.
