‘Wonder Woman’ Star Gal Gadot Responds to Joss Whedon Controversy

'Wonder Woman' Star Gal Gadot Responds to Joss Whedon Controversy

Gal Gadot weighs in on the on-set controversy surrounding Joss Whedon.

Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot has addressed the rumors of an on-set feud with substitute director Joss Whedon during the reshoots of the epic failure Justice League (2017).

Whedon is at the center of controversy after he was alleged of “abusive, unprofessional” behavior by Cyborg star Ray Fisher after taking over the movie from original director Zack Snyder.

Whedon has refused to respond explicitly to these claims. The new controversy stems from a lengthy interview with Fisher published in The Hollywood Reporter, which mentions anonymous sources in detailing Whedon’s suspected poor treatment of other castmates.

Whedon reportedly threatened to ruin Gadot’s career by editing out her portions in the theatrical version of Justice League after she opposed to some dialogues he’d written for Wonder Woman.

Gadot and Wonder Woman helmer Patty Jenkins, both are said to have expressed their complaints to then-Warner Bros chief Kevin Tsujihara.

In response to the new allegations, Gadot admitted to the paper she had her problems with Whedon, and Warner Bros treated it in a timely fashion.

Although the magnitude of the alleged altercation was unknown until now, Gadot previously discussed her issues with Whedon in December.

She told The LA Times back then:

I’m happy for Ray to go out and speak his truth. 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.

Gadot added,

I took it to the higher-ups and they took care of it. But I’m happy for Ray to go up and say his truth.

WarnerMedia launched an internal inquiry into Justice League on-set behavior last year, eventually reporting that corrective action has been swiftly taken.

Whedon has not responded to similar allegations of sexual harassment made by Charisma Carpenter and Michelle Trachtenberg.
