Gal Gadot has opened up with regards to her initial response after Joss Whedon threatened her on the sets of Justice League. The director was brought on set of the DCEU movie during the post-production stage after Zack Snyder stepped down. Gal played the character of Wonder Woman in the movie.
Discussing the encounter, Gal uncovered she was in shock and felt ‘dizzy’ after he threatened her. She likewise asked as to whether Joss would have acted the manner in which he did with her had she been a man.
“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,” she told Elle, in a recent interview.
“I would’ve done the same thing, I think, if I was a man. Would he tell me what he told me had I been a man? I don’t know. 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,” she added.
Earlier, The Hollywood Reporter had revealed that Gal and Joss got into a fight about Wonder Woman’s character and dialogue. This prompted the director verbally abusing her.
