Gadot refuses to work on a project that Brett Ratner is involved. Ratner’s company, RatPac-Dune Entertainment, has been involved with the DCEU films Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Wonder Woman. Ratner’s company made a lot of money off of financing these films. Gadot signed a three movie deal to play Wonder Woman which is up after Justice League. Warner Bros has a contract with RatPac-Dune Entertainment through 2019.
Former directer Brett Ratner has been accused of sexual misconduct by several women including actresses Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge. He outed actress Ellen Page on the set of X-Men: The Last Stand before she came out of the closet. Gal Gadot will not act in a movie that will make Ratner’s money.
Brett Ratner stepped down from control of RatPac-Dune Entertainment. Warner Bros could buy out the contract from RatPac-Dune Entertainment. This would allow Gadot to resume her role as Wonder Woman. There are hoops to jump through to make that kind of deal work. RatPac-Dune Entertainment would have to be willing to make a deal. Until this is resolved, the DCEU might be without a Wonder Woman.
