Warner Bros. Denies Story That Gal Gadot Insist They Fire Brett Ratner

This image released by Warner Bros. Entertainment shows Gal Gadot in a scene from

Gal Gadot, for her part, backed out of an appearance where she was supposed to present the Tree of Life award to Ratner at a dinner in his honor.

Ratner recently came under fire from various women - including X-Men's Ellen Page and Olivia Munn - for sexual harassment, which revealed multiple misconducts. The movie has grossed more than $400 million internationally, and Ratner's company will take a healthy share of the profits. According to the New York Post, she was making another statement through her action, showing that "she wouldn't allow the female-led "Wonder Woman" franchise to benefit from a man who used his power and influence to sexually harass and abuse women". 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. "She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops", a Warner Bros. source told Page Six.

Released in June of this year, Wonder Woman shattered numerous records on its way to becoming the top-grossing film of all time from a female filmmaker with solo directing duties.

A representative for Warner Bros. told SYFY WIRE Monday that the report is "false".

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.

Ratner said earlier he was personally stepping away from Warner Bros. related activity.

Previously, Warner Bros announced after San Diego Comic-Con that Wonder Woman 2 was to bow on December 13, 2019.

Ratner's lawyer denied all allegations.

It would kill not just any Wonder Woman sequels, but also any other DCEU film she's a part of, like the sequel to Justice League and (according to the latest rumors) the Flash solo movie.
