Gal Gadot will quit Wonder Woman unless this alleged harasser is fired

Gal Gadot will quit Wonder Woman unless this alleged harasser is fired

"Wonder Woman" grossed more than $400 million internationally, with Rattner's company earning much of the profit, while "Batman Versus Superman", which featured Gadot in the superhero role, grossed more than $422 million internationally.

'Wonder Woman' star Gal Gadot is reportedly taking a stand against working with Brett Ratner after he was accused of sexual harassment...

A spokesperson claimed the issue came down to a scheduling conflict as Gadot has been on a worldwide publicity tour with her "Justice Leage" cast, however it seems more and more likely it may also be due to allegations surrounding the director, producer and founder of RatPac-Dune Entertainment.

One rep for Warner Bros. denied Gal has ever set such an ultimatum, but reps for both Gal and Bret simply refused to comment.

Warner Bros. called the reports from Page Six "false", adding that they've already cut ties with Ratpac Entertainment.

There's no doubt that Gal Gadot, former combat instructor, beauty queen and mother, is serious- just last month she boycotted a dinner honouring Ratner.

After the LA Times's report on Ratner was published, Warner Bros. announced it was severing ties with him and RatPac-Dune Entertainment, but it's now unclear how that might affect the Wonder Woman sequel, or what kind of deal is already in place. "Now Gadot is saying she won't sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him". It's not the first allegation against Ratner in the ongoing accusations and revelations of sexual misconduct by powerful Hollywood men, some of whom have admitted the allegations.

Presumably, Warner Bros. won't let go of Gadot and would probably like to lose Ratner. Gadot's performance as the earnest, buoyant Diana Prince, a.k.a. I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out.

We certainly hope not; we couldn't imagine anyone embodying everything Wonder Woman stands for quiet so perfectly. After previously committing to a December 2019 release date for the Amazon warrior's return, Warners has now moved the Wonder Woman 2 release date up to November 2019.

An unnamed source told Page Six that Gadot is looking to use her Hollywood clout to help weed out Ratner.
