-In her Elle cover storyGal Gadot says she immediately reported Joss Whedon when they clashed on the Justice League set. “Oh, I was shaking trees as soon as it happened. And I must say that the heads of Warner Brothers, they took care of it…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. I just did what I felt like I had to do. And it was to tell people that it’s not okay…But my sense of justice is very strong. I was shocked by the way that he spoke to me.”

Simmons, Nina Arianda, Tony Hale and Alia Shawkat.

It’s not working as a model for establishing legendary greatness.” I mean, I don’t think most streaming movies have moved beyond generic-looking action (see the below trailer), but streaming is where the film world is going so, I don’t know, maybe try to make one that’s better?

Tom Holland wished Zendaya a happy birthday on Insta with this sweet photo of them.
