Gadot can be seen next in Warner Bros.'/DC's Justice League on November 17 which is poised to make in excess of $100M during its first weekend.

Ratner's RatPac production company has been producing WB movies including Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman, Gravity, The LEGO Movie, Annabelle, American Sniper, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, The Conjuring 2, Lights Out, Suicide Squad, The LEGO Batman Movie, Kong: Skull Island, Justice League and It.

Prolific producer and director Ratner was of course recently accused of sexual harassment and/or misconduct by multiple women, and occupies a spot on the seemingly endless list of powerful Hollywood figures to be accused of such abhorrent behavior since the allegations against Harvey Weinstein served to open the floodgates.

The source had the following to say about the situation, claiming Gadot will not return as Wonder Woman if Ratner is involved...

The Israeli actress has been chosen as the latest recipient of the event's Rising Star Award, and she'll pick up the honour on 2 January (18).

Warner Bros. has denied the story and the studio has also begun severing ties with Ratner, who has a contract that is set to expire in 2018.


"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", a source for the website states. DesiMartini congratulates Gal Gadot for this huge success.

"Bullying and sexual harassment is unacceptable!"

"I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out".

"We are all united in this time of change".

This past week, Warner Bros. While the current allegations against Ratner weren't yet public at that point, clearly there was already word going around in the industry about what revelations might soon be coming out concerning him.

A rep for Warner Bros said only, "False".
