Wonder Woman Gal Gadot turned up the volume on her previous remarks about director Joss Whedon behavior on set.
Others have come out about Whedon’s alleged behavior and Gadot has previously acknowledged her own run-in with Whedon. But she merely said at the time she had an “experience” with him,
“which wasn’t the best one, but I took care of it there and when it happened. I took it to the higher-ups.”
In a Saturday interview with Israeli news outlet N12, Gadot elaborated on her prior statement, revealing the content of Whedon’s threat.“
“He kind of threatened my career and said if I did something, he would make my career miserable, and I just took care of it instead,”
The clash came when Gadot pushed back on some new dialog Whedon had written. During the exchange, he also allegedly disparaged Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins.
In March, HBO Max aired the expanded Zack Snyder director’s cut of Justice League. Snyder left the production before its completion to deal with a family issue, resulting in Whedon becoming attached.
Gadot has supported the claims of others, particularly her Justice League colleague Ray Fisher, who has condemned Whedon’s alleged behavior and decried the lack of support from WarnerMedia executives.
Whedon has been taken to task for his alleged toxic behavior toward the casts of shows like Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but he still keeps getting hired.
WarnerMedia says it has concluded its investigation into the Justice League allegations against Whedon and issued a statement saying,
“remedial action has been taken,”
They did not specify what that entailed and has declined further comment.
Whedon has denied any wrongdoing.
