A Hollywood insider told Page Six that Gadot, who declined to attend a dinner honoring Ratner in October, does not want the producer accused of sexual misconduct to benefit from her hit film franchise in any way.
However, Warner Bros. has claimed that although the deal with Ratner’s production company, Rat-Pac Entertainment, is set to expire next year and was never meant to include Wonder Woman 2.
Gadot’s performances in both Batman v. Superman and Wonder Woman earned her much critical acclaim, and with #WonderWoman being labelled as the best superhero film of all time by some, it certainly makes sense why Warner Bros. values Gadot so much.
According to deadline.com, RatPac Dune isn’t committed to finance “Wonder Woman 2“. “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”.
Fans can see Gadot’s latest turn as Wonder Woman this week when Justice League premieres in theaters on November 17. This is a month and a half earlier than the previously announced release date.
Warner Bros had November 1 put up on the calendar with a yet untitled DC movie.
While speaking with Justice League costar Ezra Miller for IGN, Gadot was asked to issue a warning to those who would prey on others.
