Director Joss Whedon addresses misconduct allegations from Gal Gadot, Ray Fisher and the cast of ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’

Director Joss Whedon has finally addressed allegations of misconduct that have been leveled him by “Justice League” stars Gal Gadot and Ray Fisher, as well as by cast members of “Buffy The Vampire Slayer.”

Whedon denied Gadot’s claim that he threatened to ruin her career during an argument on the set of “Justice League,” saying she didn’t understand his “flowery” way of speaking.  Said Whedon: “I don’t threaten people. Who does that?  English is not her first language, and I tend to be annoyingly flowery in my speech.”  Whedon clams the two were arguing over a scene that Gadot wanted cut. Whedon said he joked that if she wanted to get rid of it, she would have to tie him to a railroad track and do it over his dead body. Said Whedon:  “Then I was told that I had said something about her dead body and tying her to the railroad track.” Gadot’s response to Vulture: “I understood perfectly.”   Actor Ray Fisher ― who played Cyborg in the 2017 film ― also accused Whedon of slashing the character’s presence and making choices that he thought “would be offensive to the Black community” and accused Whedon of changing an actor of color’s complexion to lighten their skin tone.  However, Whedon insists the only reason Fisher’s role was cut in his version of the film was because the story line “logically made no sense,” and he felt the acting was bad.
