Ray Fisher wasn’t the only actor who had issues with Joss Whedon. During the reshoots of “Justice League”, not even Wonder Woman was safe from his abusive behaviour.
An insider told The Hollywood Reporter that Whedon once threatened to sabotage Gal Gadot’s edit in the theatrical cut after the actress disagreed with the dialogue he had written for Wonder Woman.
A witness on set recalled, “Joss was bragging that he’s had it out with Gal. He told her he’s the writer and she’s going to shut up and say the lines and he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie.” Subsequently, Gadot and Patty Jenkins took their concerns to then-Warner Bros chairman Kevin Tsujihara.
Another source shared that Gadot had “issues about her character being more aggressive than her character in ‘Wonder Woman’. She wanted to make the character flow from one movie to the next.”
In response to these fresh claims, the 36-year-old actress confirmed her dispute, saying, “I had my issues with [Whedon] and Warner Bros handled it in a timely manner.” Although Gadot did not go into detail about their dispute, she previously spoke about it to The LA Times last December.
“I’m happy for Ray to go out and speak his truth,” she was quoted as saying. “I wasn’t there with the guys when they shot with Joss Whedon – I had my own experience with [him], which wasn’t the best one, but I took care of it there and when it happened.”
Whedon has yet to address any of these misconduct claims.
