Joss Whedon Responds To Accusations Of Abusive On-Set Behaviour; Fires Back At "Rude" JUSTICE LEAGUE Cast

Following a long list of accusations of abusive and unprofessional behaviour, disgraced director Joss Whedon has finally responded in a new interview, firing back at the cast of Justice League.

Avengers director Joss Whedon was at the center of a lot of controversy last year after accusations of "gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable" behaviour during 2017's Justice League reshoots were leveled at him by Cyborg actor Ray Fisher. This prompted others to weigh in, with Gal Gadot claiming that the filmmaker threatened to "end her career," and several cast members from Buffy the Vampire Slayer coming forward to share their own, pretty shocking stories.

The filmmaker didn't respond at the time, but has now fired back during a lengthy interview with NY Magazine.

The full thing has been shared in a Twitter thread by Jumbled Beats, but the gist of it is this: Whedon takes very little responsibility for anything, dismisses Gadot's claims outright ("English is not her first language, and I tend to be annoyingly flowery in my speech"), and even goes so far as to suggest that there might have been some sort of "malevolent force" conspiring against him from the start. He doesn't come right out and accuse Zack Snyder of putting Fisher up to making the allegations, but the implications are clear.

He doesn't go into much detail about working on Justice League or the rest of the individual cast, but does mention that he's never worked with "a ruder group of people."

You can check out the thread for yourselves below.

Whedon is clearly attempting to paint himself as the victim here, but this interview is unlikely to gain him much support. What do you guys make of his comments? Be sure to share your thoughts down below.
