New details about “Wonder Woman” actress Gal Gadot’s drama with Joss Whedon came to light in a The Hollywood Reporter article published Tuesday.

Citing an unnamed source, the report claimed Gadot had continuity issues regarding her character’s escalated level of aggression in director Whedon’s take on the 2017 “Justice League” film, where he took charge late in its production.

According to other unnamed sources cited by THR, Whedon threatened Gadot’s career when she took exception to lines she was asked to say. He also is accused of criticizing the work of director Patty Jenkins, who directed Gadot in “Wonder Woman,” which also hit the big screen in 2017.

Whedon even boasted he and Gadot “had it out,” according to another unnamed source.

“He told her he’s the writer and she’s going to shut up and say the lines, and he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie,” that witness reportedly said.

Another unidentified source reportedly told THR that Gadot and Jenkins teamed up on Whedon and spoke with the production company’s chairman about their issues with the “Justice League” filmmaker.

Gadot admitted to THR “I had my issues with (Whedon) and Warner Bros. handled it in a timely manner.”

Jenkins and Gadot worked together again on 2020 1/4 u2032s “Wonder Woman 1984.”

Whedon’s stardom stems from his 1990s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” TV franchise. Cast members from that show later spoke ill of their experiences with the supernatural series’ creator.

He has not addressed recent claims against him.

The new allegations came to light in an in-depth article that includes an interview with “Justice League” actor Ray Fisher. The 33-year-old had previously used social media to express his own negative feelings about working with “gross, abusive” Whedon on the film. Fisher, who played crimefighter Cyborg, reportedly conceded he probably won’t change how Hollywood operates by speaking out.

“If I can’t get accountability... at least I can make people aware of who they’re dealing with,” he said.
