Don’t take on Wonder Woman if you can’t handle the lasso of truth.
We know the amount of Justice League was frightened between the cast and the substitute director. We’ve heard of the abuse Ray Fisher suffered, and we know that Zack Snyder had to struggle a long time to see his version of the film.
Many of these issues had to do with Joss Whedon, who was brought in after Snyder was forced to leave the company for personal reasons. Well, in an interview with Israeli news agency N12, actor Gal Gadot referred to her earlier statements about her time on the set with Whedon.
When Whedon tried to change the character of Wonder Woman, the two paced back and forth.
Yuna Leibzon from N12 said to Gadot: “He even said you should just be pretty and say your lines. You didn’t want to let him get away with it. ”
Gadot replied, “No.”
Then the actress explained, “What I basically had with Joss is that he was kind of threatening my career and saying that if I did something he would make my career miserable. I did it right away. ”
Impressive. It’s wild to believe that the new director on set, Whedon, would be so anxious to get his way that he would threaten a star in arguably the most popular iteration of the DC Universe.
Another unnamed witness later said“Joss bragged about making it with Gal. He told her he was the writer and she’s going to shut up and say the lines and he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie.”
While Whedon has denied the allegations, Gadot has endorsed Fisher and director Patty Jenkins’ comments (whom Whedon allegedly spoke ill of as well) and wasn’t shy about raising her own voice on the matter.
We hope that she and other cast members will continue to do so and see their own form of justice outside of the movie.
