Maybe he should just stop talking
Joss Whedon might be one of the most disgraced personalities in Hollywood, and he’s not doing a great job at improving his image either. The director has been flamed for his unprofessional behaviour during the production of 2017’s Justice League, which led to other actors stepping up to accuse him of misconduct and other disturbing facts.
Joss Whedon’s interview
In the New York profile piece called “The Undoing of Joss Whedon,” the 57-year-old The Avengers director gave his side of the story, and spoke about the allegations from Ray Fisher and Gal Gadot. Whedon called Fisher “a malevolent force.” Fisher was the first actor to speak about his unprofessional behaviour, and said that Whedon brought down his screen time and also lightened his skin complexion. Joss Whedon responded to this by saying that Cyborg was the worst character among them, and Fisher, a bad actor.
Regarding Gadot, who alleged that Whedon threatened her career, he said that he didn’t threaten her. He continued by saying that English is not her first language, and added “I tend to be annoyingly flowery in my speech.” Gadot had asked him to remove a scene which she didn’t like, to which Whedon responded that she will have to tie him to a railroad track and do it over his dead body, and he said that the actress misunderstood it and said he was talking about tying her to a railroad track.
Gal Gadot and Ray Fisher’s responses
On the comment, Gadot said that she understood perfectly. She also added that she will never work with him and also suggested her peers to not work with him in the future either.
Fisher later tweeted out that he will not be addressing the “lies and buffoonery” today and will celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. He added “Tomorrow the work continues,” meaning we will be hearing more from him.
