'Wonder Woman 2' moves away from 'Star Wars', up to November 2019

'Wonder Woman 2' moves away from 'Star Wars', up to November 2019”

Last month Gadot backed out of a planned appearance at a dinner for the Jewish National Fund where she was expected to present Ratner with the Tree of Life Award. It's not the first allegation against Ratner in the ongoing accusations and revelations of sexual misconduct by powerful Hollywood men, some of whom have admitted the allegations.

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".

If a new report is to be believed, Gal Gadot is putting her money where her mouth is.

Presumably, Warner Bros. won't let go of Gadot and would probably like to lose Ratner.

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".

Page Six is reporting that the actress has put her boot down, and will not reprise her role as Diana/Wonder Woman if the accused sexual assailant is a part of it.

According to Page Six, Gadot is refusing to sign on for another Wonder Woman solo film unless Ratner and his company are completely cut out of the franchise financially. Ratner's RatPac-Dune company helped produce Wonder Woman via a co-financing deal with Warner Bros., with Ratner himself reportedly taking home a substantial sum as a result. The Wonder Woman sequel is set to hit theaters on December 13, 2019.

When asked about the story, a Warner Bros. spokesperson said only "false".

The entertainment site also reports that the stunning 32-year-old Israeli actress will be returning along with director Patty Jenkins.

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

That takes care of the Star Wars problem for Warner Bros. "He was the film's director, Brett Ratner".
