While Justice League star Ray Fisher and former Angel and Buffy star Charisma Carpenter have been vocal about director Joss Whedon’s “abusive” behavior on their respective sets, Wonder Woman and JL star Gal Gadot has been fairly quiet – even after she was mentioned as a target of Whedon’s venom by Fisher in a Hollywood Reporter feature.
However, in an interview with Israeli website Mako, Gadot finally shed some light on Whedon’s conduct.
An alternate translation also doing the rounds says, “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.”
“Taking care of it” is most likely in reference to Gadot talking to Warner Bros. execs and getting them involved. After the conversation, the studio reportedly had two representatives on set.
It’s also now know that Whedon locked Gadot’s stunt double in her dressing room when she expressed a reluctance to shoot that scene with the Flash’s head in the Amazon’s cleavage.
Whedon did end up using the stunt double in the cringe-inducing scene.
While it brought nothing to the plot but cheap humor, it was already a stunt Whedon had used in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Just as cringe:
All in all, Gadot speaking on the matter does not bode well for Whedon’s career.
