As reported Varietythe 22-second commercial showed Johansson behind the scenes of filming Black Widow, where she actually says “What’s up guys?” It’s Scarlett and I want you to come with me. But then the ad cuts away from Johansson, while an AI-generated voice meant to sound like the actress says: “It’s not limited to avatars only. You can also create images with texts and even your AI videos. I think you shouldn’t miss it.
At the very bottom of the ad, Variety reports that Convert Software – the developer behind the app – included the following text: “Images produced by Lisa AI. It has nothing to do with this person. Representatives for Johansson say Variety that the actress was never a spokesperson for the application and that her lawyer, Kevin Yorn, “handled the situation in a legal capacity”.
“We don’t take these things lightly. Consistent with our usual course of action in these circumstances, we will respond with all legal remedies available to us,” Yorn said in a statement to Variety. Neither Yorn nor Convert Software responded to The edgerequesting comment on the nature of the legal action.
