Did Joss Whedon actually attempt to intimidate Marvel Lady into bending to his will?
In a brand new interview, we lastly be taught extra particulars about what actually occurred to Ray Fisher and the remainder of the forged throughout the Justice League reshoots, when director Zack Snyder was changed by Avengers director Joss Whedon.
It’s undoubtedly a disgrace about Ray. Fisher’s Cyborg, decreased to an afterthought in #TheWhedonCut (aka Josstice League), received redeemed by Snyder’s four-hour-plus model, which included a whole feature-length origin storyline and character arc for him. However we realized a lot extra about Whedon’s reprehensible habits in Fisher’s tell-all interview with Kim Masters of The Hollywood Reporter. No marvel your entire forged of superheroes (Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Fisher) rallied to revive the Snyder Reduce and convey it to the display through HBO Max.
For one factor, we’re reminded that WarnerMedia tried dangling Momoa as clickbait because the voice of Frosty the Snowman (?!?) to divert consideration away from Fisher’s preliminary public accusations with what Momoa later described on Instagram as “a fake Frosty announcement without my permission to try to distract from Ray Fisher speaking up about the shitty way we were treated on Justice League reshoots. Serious stuff went down. It needs to be investigated and people need to be held accountable.”
However that was nothing in comparison with how Whedon mishandled Marvel Lady, aka Gadot.
Sources informed THR that Gadot had “issues about her character being more aggressive than her character in Wonder Woman. She wanted to make the character flow from one movie to the next.”
Even worse, although, she and Whedon had beef over Whedon’s dedication to rewrite Gadot’s traces, and he threatened to hurt her profession if she didn’t comply. One on-set witness informed WarnerMedia investigators: “Joss was bragging that he’s had it out with Gal. 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.” However Gadot reportedly stood her floor and received a gathering with then-studio head Kevin Tsujihara (who later misplaced his job in an unrelated intercourse scandal).
All Gadot would say publicly, through assertion to THR: “I had my issues with [Whedon] and Warner Bros. handled it in a timely manner.”
Maybe Whedon’s threats got here to fruition onscreen by way of all of these creepy butt photographs.
WarnerMedia mentioned it took “remedial action” following the inner investigation prompted by Fisher’s accusations, however has disclosed nothing particular.
Simply two months in the past, actress Charisma Carpenter got here ahead on social media to explain Whedon’s alleged abusiveness on the units of each Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. “He was mean and biting, disparaging about others openly, and often played favorites, pitting people against one another to compete and vie for his attention and approval,” Carpenter shared.
Sounds rather a lot like what occurred on the Justice League reshoots.
