'Wonder Woman' Gal Gadot delivers strong message for 'misogynist sexists'

When the allegations against Ratner came to light, Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot was one of the biggest voices calling for action, reportedly stating that she wouldn't return for the sequel unless Ratner was booted from the film. Warner Bros. immediately severed ties with the filmmaker, and it's presumed that the studio won't be renewing their contract with RatPac when their arrangement ends in March 2018 - and that's why Gadot's apparent Wonder Woman 2 demand seemed redundant, for Ratner nor RatPac was going to be involved with the sequel's production.

Will you see Justice League in theaters? "They can't have a movie rooted in women's empowerment being part-financed by a man accused of sexual misconduct against women". Now Warner Bros. has (thankfully) chose to move the date up by a month, opting for November 1, 2019, instead. On top of that, Wonder Woman 2 will now face zero competition thanks to the date being moved up a month. Ratner has vehemently denied the allegations through his attorney, Marty Singer. In response to the Page Six report, a Warner Bros. spokesperson offered simply, "It's false".

Gadot's supposed ultimatum, though immediately refuted by Warner Bros., was met with overwhelming support from fans and industry professionals alike, who felt the actress was living up to her DC superhero role. Films including "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Suicide Squad" underwhelmed critics, though both grossed more than $700 million worldwide.

The 63 year old has only lost one competitive match since taking over the team in August 2016. He was later released and rejoined the rest of the Argentinian squad.

"She's tough and stands by her principles", a source told PageSix of Gadot's decision.

Gadot already has extricated herself from a Ratner-involved event in recent weeks. The sequel, again featuring Gal Gadot in the title role and directed by Patty Jenkins, will now bow in theaters November 1, 2019, up from the original release date of December 13, 2019. The company previously included now-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin as a principal.

In April, Blavatnik, a Russian billionaire, bought out another RatPac-Dune principal, the Australian tycoon James Packer.
