The Hollywood Reporter shared in a report that Justice League director Joss Whedon “clashed with all the stars” of the DCEU film, including Alfred Pennyworth star Jeremy Irons.
The outlet revealed that one knowledgeable source shared that Gal Gadot “had multiple concerns” with the revised version of the 2017 superhero team-up, including “issues about her character being more aggressive than her character in Wonder Woman.”
In addition, Gadot wanted to “make the character flow from one movie to the next.”
The Hollywood Reporter unveiled that the biggest clash happened when Whedon forced Gadot to record lines she didn’t like while also threatening “to harm” the career of the actress and “disparaged” Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins.
Furthermore, a witness who later spoke to investigators described what happened after one clash between Whedon and Gadot:
“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.”
Lastly, a source from the outlet shared that Gadot and Jenkins “went to battle,” and it eventually culminated in a meeting with then-Warners Bros. Chairman Kevin Tsujihara.
Gadot said that “Warner Bros. handled it in a timely manner:”
“I had my issues with [Whedon] and Warner Bros. handled it in a timely manner.”
