In July the actress filed a lawsuit against Disney (DIS), alleging the production company breached her contract by releasing “Black Widow,” a Marvel film starring the actress, on streaming app, Disney+ on the same day it was released in theaters.

The suit alleged that putting “Black Widow” on Disney+ reduced Johansson’s financial stake in the film because she had agreed that her salary would be based, in large part, on the film’s box office haul.

Disney responded in July by saying that “there is no merit whatsoever to this filing.” The studio added at the time that the company “fully complied with Ms. Johansson’s contract and furthermore, the release of ‘Black Widow’ on Disney+ with Premier Access has significantly enhanced her ability to earn additional compensation on top of the $20 million she has received to date.”

On Thursday, September 30, the actress and Disney resolved their dispute.

In a statement on Thursday she said that she was “happy to have resolved our differences.”

“I’m incredibly proud of the work we’ve done together over the years and have greatly enjoyed my creative relationship with the team,” she said.

 “I look forward to continuing our collaboration in years to come.”

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Alan Bergman, chairman of Disney Studios Content, said that Disney appreciates Johansson’s “contributions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and look forward to working together on a number of upcoming projects, including Disney’s ‘Tower of Terror.'”

“Black Widow” brought in $80 million at North American box office in its opening weekend. The film also made $60 million globally on Disney+ that weekend, according to the studio.
