'Wonder Woman 2' Release Date Moved Up 6 Weeks

Report: Gal Gadot won't star in the Wonder Woman sequel until Warner Bros. dumps Brett Ratner

Report: Gal Gadot will not do Wonder Woman sequel if accused film producer remains on

Last month, she backed out of attending a dinner honoring Ratner.

And last week, actress Ellen Page penned a Facebook post recounting a moment on the set of X-Men: The Last Stand - which Ratner directed - alleging that Ratner harassed her by specifically telling another woman to "fuck her to make her realize she's [Page is] gay".

At the end of the day, if Gadot really does want Ratner removed from Wonder Woman 2, it's hard to imagine that he won't be.

Gadot was moved by Rivlin's warm wishes and thanked him at her event. Clearly, Warner Bros.is not interested in going up against a blockbuster of that magnitude, made considerably more important by the fact that it will serve as the conclusive chapter of the series.

Ratner himself told the Times and other media outlets he has chosen "to personally step away from all Warner Bros. -related activities" in order to prevent "any possible negative impact to the studio until these personal issues are resolved". Ratner's deal with the studio will have expired by the time "Wonder Woman 2" starts filming, according to Business Insider.

According to the Page Six gossip site, Gadot is opposed to someone accused of widespread sexual impropriety benefiting financially from her work and is therefore holding out on a sequel unless Ratner's RatPack Entertainment, which helped produce "Wonder Woman", is jettisoned from the project.

Undoubtedly pleased with the response they received with their release of the "Wonder Woman" movie, Warner Bros. has announced that they will be bumping up the release date for the sequel, tentatively titled "Wonder Woman 2".

Gadot took to social media to denounce Hollywood's hypocrisy, proclaiming "Bullying and sexual harassment is unacceptable!"

Audiences responded so well to her character that Gadot's Amazon warrior is now at the forefront of the marketing for Justice League, which purports to ditch the more somber tone of previous movies in the series like Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman.

Ratner's lawyer denied all allegations. "I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out".
