Joss Whedon’s abusive attitudes during the Justice League (2017) remakes continue to surface over time. In addition to the various problems involving the star Ray Fisher, who lived the hero Cyborg, the director would have threatened the actress Gal Gadot because of disagreements with his vision for the feature.
According to witnesses involved in the production and heard by The Hollywood Reporter, Whedon argued with the Wonder Woman interpreter over a refusal by the actress to memorize lines with which she did not agree. Subsequently, the filmmaker would have threatened to hinder her career, as well as that of Patty Jenkins, director of the two solo films of the heroine.
“Joss was explaining that he was on the edge with Gal. He told her that, because he was the screenwriter, she was going to shut up and say the lines, and that he could make her look incredibly stupid in the movie,” said one of the witnesses.
In another situation, Diana Prince’s interpreter reportedly brought her complaints to Kevin Tsujihara, president of Warner Bros. The actress did not agree with the most aggressive vision for her character and that did not match what was presented in the first Wonder Woman movie.
Other sources said Fisher and Gal were not the only stars to have problems with Whedon on set. Jeremy Irons (Alfred) and Jason Momoa (Aquaman) were also identified as victims of the filmmaker’s abusive behavior.
Neither Warner nor Whedon responded to the report’s questions. In a statement sent to the publication, Gal Gadot only said that “he had problems with the director and the studio, but he dealt with them in his time”.
