Joss Whedon finally open up his statement regarding criticizes and recent Controversies about Justice League. Whedon admits he cut down Cyborg’s role in Justice League because Ray Fisher is a bad actor and the storyline ‘made no sense.’
In a new interview with New York magazine, Whedon admits that Warner Bros. asked him to “fix” Justice League after losing faith in Snyder’s vision. The studio, however, contests Whedon’s version of events and points out that Snyder had publically stated that he left the project to spend time with his family.
Whedon wanted everyone to stick to the script. One crew member claims that Gal Gadot told Whedon that he didn’t understand how superhero movies worked, Whedon allegedly told the actors he had never worked with “a ruder group of people.” The actors, conversely, felt Whedon was rude while reshooting.
Gadot has also claimed that Whedon threatened her career, which Whedon said he did not do, instead of saying there must have been a misunderstanding. “English is not her first language, and I tend to be annoyingly flowery in my speech,” he told the magazine. Gadot responded in an email saying: “I understood perfectly.”
