Gal Gadot confirms Brett Ratner off Wonder Woman 2

Warner Bros. Pictures

Posted on

This is basically confirming something that wasn’t actually happening in the first place, but Gal Gadot said in an interview on Wednesday’s episode of NBC’s TODAY show that Wonder Woman co-financier Brett Ratner is off the sequel in the wake of several sexual misconduct allegations against the mogul.

Gadot was asked about a report that claimed she refused to return for the highly anticipated 2019 sequel if Ratner was still on the project. Gadot replied, “The truth is, there’s so many people involved in making this movie, it’s not just me, and they all echoed the same sentiments. Everyone knew what was the right thing to do. But there was nothing for me to actually come and say because [the decision] was already done before this article [on Saturday declaring a stand-off] came out.”

But first, given the allegations against Ratner — whose billionaire-funded RatPac-Dune Entertainment financing company helped bankroll the first film — there was never any way Warner Bros. would have kept the producer involved in a franchise that’s been heralded as a cinematic trailblazer of female empowerment. And second, the L.A. Times pointed out that RatPac-Dune’s financing agreement with Warner Bros. expires early next year and it wasn’t expected to fund Wonder Woman 2 in the first place (the new film doesn’t start shooting until next summer).

Warner Bros. officially cut ties with Ratner after the Nov. 1 story detailing allegations by actresses such as Olivia Munn, Natasha Henstridge, and Jaime Ray Newman. Ratner has denied their accounts.

In the meantime, Gadot reprises her role as Wonder Woman in this weekend’s Justice League. Check our rundown of what the critics had to say. They’re pretty snarky, but all liked Gadot.
