Having spoken up against the 'Justice League' director for threatening her career, the 'Wonder Woman' star believes she was 'shaking trees' when refusing to let the issue go.

AceShowbiz - Gal Gadot is proud of herself for standing up to "Justice League" director Joss Whedon, insisting she did what she felt she needed to do at the time.

The "Wonder Woman" star claimed the filmmaker threatened her career when she challenged him over her character's dialog in reshoots for the film she started with Zack Snyder as her director, and rather than just let the issue go, she took it to Warner Bros. bosses, who "took care of it."

Now, Gal tells Elle magazine she was "shaking trees" as soon as she realized she was being mistreated by Whedon.

"Going back to the sense of righteousness that I have... you're dizzy because you can't believe this was just said to you, and if he says it to me, then obviously he says it to many other people," Gadot explains.

"I just did what I felt like I had to do and it was to tell people that it's not OK. I would've done the same thing, I think, if I was a man. Would he tell me what he told me had I been a man? I don't know. We'll never know. But my sense of justice is very strong. I was shocked by the way that he spoke to me."

Whedon took over the DC Comics project after Snyder stepped down following a family tragedy.

In an interview with Israeli news outlet N12 in May, Gadot said Whedon "kind of threatened my career and said if I did something, he would make my career miserable, and I just took care of it instead."

Gadot wasn't the only "Justice League" cast member who fell out with Whedon during the shoot - Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg, has repeatedly made it clear he didn't appreciate the director's "gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable" behavior on the "Justice League" set.

Whedon has also been accused of creating a toxic atmosphere on the sets of his prior TV shows, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and its spin off, "Angel". He has yet to respond to Gadot's latest remarks.
