Perhaps the biggest Hollywood cancellations of 2020 and 2021 are creator Joss Whedon Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and firefly and the director of the first two Avengers movie. To make a short story, Whedon was first named by Ray Fisher (Cyborg) for his “raw, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable” behavior on set Alliance justice, a film for which he took over directing from Zack Snyder after Snyder was called to the emergency room for a family case. It leads to allegations from Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) whose career Wheden threatened. And things really heated up when Charisma Carpenter, who worked with Whedon on set Buffy and Angel, details her own experience with Whedon’s toxic behavior, alleging that he was “accidentally cruel” to her, including calling her fat while she was pregnant, asking her if she “would keep it” Are not.”
All of this essentially resulted in Whedon being evicted from the show business. He lost his show gig on The Nevers and nothing in the hopper. He spoke up again earlier this week in a long interview with Vulture where he addressed some of the charges against him, but I don’t think it did much good.
Here are some of what he said in the interview:
- Whedon called Fisher’s allegations against him “false and unjust.” Regarding Fisher personally, he said, “We are talking about an evil force. We’re talking about a bad actor in both senses. “
- As for him threatening Gadot’s career, Whedon speculated that she may have misunderstood what he said, as she is not a native English speaker. Gadot replied, “I totally understand.”
- As for Carpenter, Whedon admitted that he was “not polite” to her, but said that “[m]My experience with Charisma was enjoyable and captivating. She struggles with her lines at times, but no one can hit a harder punch line than her.”
