Well, well, well. Joss Whedon is back in the news. This time, the writer/director has decided to criticise the cast and crew on his 2017’s Justice League movie.
Whedon was talking to The New York Times (via Jumbled Beats on Twitter), and during the interview, he was asked about his experience on Justice League.
During the interview, the filmmaker, who has been accused by multiple stars of harassment and toxic behaviour on the movie’s set, criticized the film’s stars and their behaviour during reshoots.
In the article, it claims that according to a crew member, Whedon had said on set that he had never worked with “a ruder group of people”.
Whedon also went on to wave away Gadot’s accusations of his threatening to kill her career, saying that he “doesn’t threaten people”.
He went on to say:
English is not her first language, and I tend to be annoyingly flowery in my speech.
Joss Whedon doesn’t have kind words for his Justice League cast and crew

However, he wasn’t done there. Whedon also went on to criticise Zack Snyder’s many fans and the movie’s stars for taking to the Internet and call for Snyder’s version of the movie to be released.
Whedon ended the interview by making the following statement:
The beginning of the internet raised me up, and the modern internet pulled me down. The perfect symmetry is not lost on me.
Honestly, this interview has to be read to be believed, and I’m surprised that he was allowed to talk to The New York Times.
Doesn’t Whedon have a PR team? Or has he become so toxic that no one in Hollywood will touch him, so he can basically say whatever he wants to?
I’m thinking it’s the latter.
