Gal Gadot said refusing 'Wonder Woman' sequel over Brett Ratner involvement

Just before the LA Times story on Ratner hit, Gadot pulled out of presenting Ratner with the Jewish National Fund's highest humanitarian award. Ratner has been accused by several women of sexual assault, including rape by a former employee.

Recently actor Ellen Page came forward to say that Ratner had sexually harassed her on the set of 'X-Men: "The Last Stand", as well as outing her as gay in front of the film's cast and crew. The movie has grossed more than $400 million internationally, and Ratner's company will take a healthy share of the profits.

If Warner Bros.is smart, they'll ditch Ratner quicker than the Millennium Falcon making the Kessel Run. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops.

Ratner - who has denied the allegations against him through his lawyer - helped produce the first "Wonder Woman" movie as part of a co-financing deal with Warner Bros. through his own company RatPac-Dune Entertainment, and Gal is believed to want the arrangement terminated before the sequel.

Wonder Woman 2 is set to hit theaters a whole month-and-a-half earlier than expected on November 1, 2019 according to a Monday report from Deadline. She was 18-years-old at the time.

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".

The "Wonder Woman 2" release date was moved up six weeks to november 1, 2019, so as not to interfere with "Star Wars: Episode IX", but production will still likely begin after RatPac-Dune's contact ends. Gadot has also been a strong voice against sexual harassment since the Weinstein accusations first broke, and even recently described how she thought Wonder Woman herself might handle such predatory behavior. "I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out".

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

This is not the first time that the younger Bush has criticised the United States president. And if you talk to those around him, they have confidence in his leadership.
