Gal Gadot has once again opened up about the abusive comments made by Justice League director Joss Whedon while the film was in the making. Gadot has played the role of Wonder Woman several times for DCEU. She has featured in the 2015 Batman vs. Superman and the 2016 movie and has starred in standalone films titled Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984.

The actress has previously shared about the alleged abusive behaviour of the director. She claimed that the director threatened her to ruin her career while bad-mouthing her all the time.

Addressing Joss Whedon’s alleged misdemeanour on sets of Justice League, Gadot said: “Oh, I was shaking trees as soon as it happened. And I must say that the heads of Warner Brothers, they took care of it…. Going back to the sense of righteousness that I have…you’re dizzy because you can’t believe this was just said to you. And if he says it to me, then obviously he says it to many other people. I just did what I felt like I had to do. And it was to tell people that it’s not okay.”

For the unversed, A news portal reported that Whedon allegedly verbally abused Gadot when she shared concerns about her character and dialogue. Whedon declined to comment for that story. Gadot then said on Israeli TV that Whedon “kind of threatened my career and said if I did something, he would make my career miserable.” 

Briefly speaking about her film Red Notice, the actress explained how different the part is from the rest of the roles she has done in the past. In the film, Gal says, “the agenda is not pure like some other characters I play. The part required a face-off with Dwayne Johnson. He’s a gigantic rock with the softest, sweetheart. It’s like butter from within,” Gadot joked

At the moment, the actress is keeping busy with numerous projects, including the title roles in both Irena Sendler (2023) and  Cleopatra (unknown release date). She will also reprise as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman in Patty Jenkins’s Wonder Woman 3 (unknown release date).

There have also been rumors that Gadot will make her Star Wars franchise debut in the near future, possibly in Jenkins’s upcoming feature film, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron (2023).

Some of these reports also indicate that Gadot’s Wonder Woman 1984 costar Chris Pine (Star Trek) — who also worked with Jenkins on the Black Dahlia murders miniseries I Am the Night — could appear in the Star Wars movie as well.
