Regarding Iger’s characterization of the strikes as “very disturbing,” Tatiana Maslany firmly expressed her belief that the Disney CEO is “completely out of touch” with the workers who contribute to the success of the shows.

Unfair Treatment at Disney

The She-Hulk actress voiced her concern for crew members, cast, and writers, who play crucial roles in bringing Disney’s content to life.

Uncertain Future and Impact on Disney

As the writers’ and actors’ strikes continue, the entertainment industry faces uncertainty, with some predicting the possibility of ongoing job actions well into 2024. Iger’s stance on the strikes adds further complexities to finding a resolution, with several Disney movies hanging in the balance and potential delays looming. Maslany’s outspokenness on this critical issue is consistent with her reputation for speaking up on important matters beyond the movie industry.

The Hope for Resolution

Maslany’s passionate advocacy for fair wages and better treatment resonates with many actors and writers who are fighting for their rights. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige also expressed disappointment in the strikes and hopes for a swift resolution. As actors and writers continue to voice their concerns, fans anxiously await developments that may bring these strikes closer to a resolution.
