Read on to get the latest tea spilling about Gal Gadot refusing to be Wonder Woman is Warner Bros. doesn’t get rid of Brett Ratner…
If Gal Gadot refuses to sign her superhero sequel the the hopes of a Wonder Woman franchise it dead.
This is NOT the first time we’re hearing about Gadot refusing to have anything to do with Ratner. Last month she backed out of a dinner honoring Ratner, where she was due to present him with an award.
Gal is taking a strong stance on sexual harassment in Hollywood. She doesn’t want her hit Wonder Woman franchise to benefit a man accused of sexual misconduct. Ratner’s production company RatPac-Dune Entertainment helped produce “Wonder Woman” as part of its co-financing deal with Warner Bros.
An insider revealed:
“Brett made a lot of money from the success of ‘Wonder Woman,’ thanks to his company having helped finance the first movie. 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.”
The source added in regards to the Israeli-born Gadot:
“She’s tough and stands by her principles. She also knows the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops. They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man accused of sexual misconduct against women.”
This past week, Warner Bros. announced it was severing ties with Ratner amid multiple sexual-harassment allegations. The women involved in the claims are Olivia Munn, Natasha Henstridge, and Ellen Page
Earlier this month, Gadot posted on Instagram:
“Bullying and sexual harassment is unacceptable! I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out. Together we stand. We are all united in this time of change.”
Of course, a rep for Warner Bros said only, “False.”
