Allegations against the writer-director Joss Whedon are circulating once again. Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot recently shared a bit more information about the matter, specifically how Whedon threatened her career and how she “took care of it.”

In an interview from Israeli news broadcast N12, Gadot further spoke on what it was like to work with Whedon on Justice League.

“I had my issues with Joss, and I handled it,” says Gadot, according to the translation by N12 US correspondent Yuna Leibzon. “He threatened my career and said that if I’ll do something, he will make sure my career is miserable, and I took care of it on the spot.”

The clash reportedly came when Gadot pushed back on some new dialog Whedon had written. During the exchange, he also allegedly disparaged Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins. Whedon has denied any wrongdoing.


Gadot is not the first Justice League star to share their thoughts on Whedon’s behavior.

Last year, Cyborg actor Ray Fisher made a statement on Twitter saying the director’s treatment of the staff and crew were “gross” and “abusive.” Since then, many actors who have worked with Whedon have come forward with more allegations of misconduct.

Stars of the television series, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, have also made similar allegations. Charisma Carpenter said in a social media post that Whedon had a “history of creating toxic and hostile work environments,” including the one she experienced on Buffy and while she was pregnant.

The TV series star, Sarah Michelle Gellar, responded to Carpenter’s post by saying that although she is proud to have her name associated with Buffy Summers, “I don’t want to be forever associated with the name Joss Whedon.”
