According to a new report, Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot is unwilling to return for the sequel if Brett Ratner remains involved with the franchise. 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. If the PageSix report is true, there's no way Warner Bros. jeopardizes its only surefire DC franchise at the moment, so RatPac-Dune would likely be removed from Wonder Woman 2 entirely.
Why not? Because she didn't have to. Ratner's deal with the studio will have expired by the time "Wonder Woman 2" starts filming, according to Business Insider.
Previously, Warner Bros announced after San Diego Comic-Con that Wonder Woman 2 was to bow on December 13, 2019.
Rat-Pac also is not now committed to bankroll Wonder Woman 2 as their commitments with Warner Bros end with Dwayne Johnson action flick Rampage which is set for release on April 20, 2018.
Ratner recently came under fire from various women - including X-Men's Ellen Page and Olivia Munn - for sexual harassment, which revealed multiple misconducts. Gadot is now clearly one of the most valuable players within the DCEU, and any attempt to replace her as Diana would surely earn widespread derision from fans. "He looked at a woman standing next to me, ten years my senior and pointed to me and said: "You should f-ck her to make her realise she's gay".
She wrote on Instagram earlier this month: 'Bullying and sexual harassment is unacceptable!
"We are all united in this time of change".
