Gal Gadot says she felt ‘dizzy’ after Joss Whedon ‘threatened her on set’
‘Would he tell me what he told me had I been a man? Ek weet nie. We’ll never know.’

Gal Gadot has revealed that she felt “dizzy” and was “shocked” by the way Joss Whedon allegedly spoke to her when she expressed concerns about her character in the Justice League draaiboek.

DieWonder Woman star worked with Whedon when he directed the 2017 DC film Justice League na Zack Snyder was forced to step down.

In April 2021, a Hollywood Reporter article claimed that Whedon turned nasty when Gadot questioned new lines of dialogue the director had given her superhero character.

A witness said that after one clash, Whedon “bragged” that he’d “had it out” with the star. “He told her he’s the writer and she’s going to shut up and say the lines and he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie,” the witness said.

Gadot told Die Hollywood Reporter in a statement at the time: “I had my issues with [Whedon] and Warner Bros handled it in a timely manner.” Whedon declined to comment for Die Hollywood Reporter’s piece, and a representative for Whedon had no additional statement when contacted by Die Onafhanklike.

Gadot previously told the Los Angeles Times that she’d had her own negative “experience” with Whedon, whose image has recently been shattered by several allegations of bad behaviour.

In an earlier translated interview with Israeli channel N12, Gadot had said: “I had my issues with Joss and I handled it. He kind of threatened my career and said if I did something, he will make sure my career is miserable.”

While the actor didn’t detail specific alleged incidents, a Hollywood Reporter article from April 2021 claimed that Whedon turned nasty when Gadot questioned new lines of dialogue the director had given her superhero character.

A witness said that, after one alleged clash, Whedon “bragged” that he’d “had it out” with the star.

“He told her he’s the writer and she’s going to shut up and say the lines and he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie,” the witness said.

Gadot recalled the incident in a new interview with Elle tydskrif. “I was shaking trees as soon as it happened. And I must say that the heads of Warner Brothers, they took care of it," sy het gese. “Going back to the sense of righteousness that I haveyou’re dizzy because you can’t believe this was just said to you.”

Superhero: Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman

The actor added: “If he says it to me, then obviously he says it to many other people.”

“I would’ve done the same thing, ek dink, if I was a man,” Gadot added. “Would he tell me what he told me had I been a man? Ek weet nie. We’ll never know. But my sense of justice is very strong. I was shocked by the way that he spoke to me. But whatever, it’s done. Water under the bridge.”

In 2020, Gadot’s Justice League co-star Ray Fisher claimed the director engaged in “gross, beledigend, unprofessional and completely unacceptable” behaviour on the set of the 2017 film.

Fisher’s claims led to a WarnerMedia investigation into Whedon’s behaviour, which saw many actors who have worked with the director in the past, including Gadot, interviewed by officials.

Whedon had no comment on Fisher’s initial allegations.
