During the reshoots for Justice League, Gal Gadot claims Joss Whedon threatened her career. She said that she ‘took care of it right away.’
Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman, has said that director Joss Whedon ‘threatened’ her career and that she ‘took care of it right away.’ Actor Ray Fisher has accused Whedon of being “abusive” on the set of Justice League, which he was hired to finish after original director Zack Snyder dropped out halfway through filming.
Although Gadot has previously hinted at fights with Whedon, this is the first time she has stated the nature of their differences. “I had my problems with Joss and I managed it,” she said in an interview with Israeli news outlet N12. He threatened my future, saying that if I don’t do anything, he’ll make sure it’s horrible for me, and I took care of it right away.” In July 2020, it was confirmed that Gadot and Whedon had a falling out over a scene in Wonder Woman that was sexualized, with the actor refusing to film the scene. It was decided to bring in a body double.
According to sources quoted in an April 2021 article in The Hollywood Reporter, Gadot and Whedon had a falling out after Whedon ‘pushed Gadot to record lines she didn’t like, threatened Gadot’s career, and disparaged Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins.’ She allegedly requested a meeting with Kevin Tsujihara, the studio’s then-chairman.
Fisher, who played Cyborg in the movie, was the first to accuse Whedon of acting inappropriately on set. Warner Bros. launched an inquiry into his claims, which was completed without the findings being made public.
Gadot returned to her role as Wonder Woman in Wonder Woman 1984, which received mixed reviews when it was released at the end of last year. She also appeared in the director’s cut of Justice League, which was released in March after intense backlash from fans. She’ll also appear in the third and final Wonder Woman film.
