Updated:7 months, 1 week ago IST

New Delhi, Nov 13 (ANI): 'Wonder Woman' star Gal Gadot has reportedly refused to sign the much-awaited sequel of 'Wonder Woman' if producer Brett Ratner, who has been accused of sexual misconduct, remains involved with the film franchise. According to a report in Page Six, Gadot said that she won't sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him. Ratner helped in producing the first 'Wonder Woman' movie as part of a co-financing deal with Warner Bros. through his production company RatPac-Dune Entertainment, which will reap a fair chunk of the profits thanks to the film's success. The movie has grossed more than USD 400 million internationally, and Ratner's company will take a healthy share of the profits. A Warner Bros. insider explained, "Brett made a lot of money from the success of Wonder Woman, thanks to his company having helped finance the first movie." The source also shared, “Gadot "knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops" because the studio "can't have a movie rooted in women's empowerment being part-financed by a man ¬accused of sexual misconduct against women".” Gal Gadot has repeatedly in the past made it clear that she takes a strong stand against sexual harassment and harassers.
