Disney CEO Bob Chapek on Tuesday applauded the company's relationships with its talent amid drama stemming from Scarlett Johansson's recent "Black Widow" lawsuit that accuses the studio of breaching her contract.
The Walt Disney Co. executive delivered his take on the company's efforts and goals to "bridge the gap" between expectations of the company and its film stars at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference.
"Well, Disney has had a long history of having very symbiotic and cooperative deals with the talent and we will continue to. Certainly, the world is changing and I think the talent deals going forward will have to reflect the fact that the world is changing. But we're in a moment of time just like so much of what we’ve talked about so far, we're in a moment of time where films were envisioned under one understanding about what the world would be because frankly, it hadn't really changed much," he said.
Chapek reminded listeners that the film industry has been facing a hefty amount of challenges in the last nearly two years due to the coronavirus pandemic.
