Gal Gadot has opened up about the ‘shocking’ incident that took place between her and Joss Whedon, and now says it’s ‘water under the bridge’.
The claims were later confirmed by Gadot, who revealed she ‘handled it on the spot’.
Expanding on the incident, the 36-year-old actress has now moved on from it but admitted Whedon’s approach towards her was surprising.
Speaking to Elle, she said: ‘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.’

She continued: ‘And it was to tell people that it’s not okay. 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.’

The Hollywood Reporter first revealed the clash in April and alleged that Whedon ‘pushed’ Gadot to record lines she wasn’t keen on, after raising concern about Wonder Woman being ‘too aggressive’ compared to her standalone films.
A ‘witness on the production’ said that the Buffy creator ‘threatened to harm Gadot’s career and disparaged Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins’.
The insider reportedly said: ‘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.’
Gadot and Jenkins reportedly ‘went to battle’ and had a meeting with then-Warners chairman Kevin Tsujihara.
In May, Gadot spoke out about it for the first time and told Israeli news channel N12: ‘No, what I had with Joss basically is that he kind of threatened my career and said if I did something, he would make my career miserable.
‘I handled it on the spot.’
Gadot has played Wonder Woman in four movies in the DC Extended Universe, including the most recent Wonder Woman 1984. She’s expected to reprise the role as the famous superheroine in Wonder Woman 3.
