“Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot continues the fight accused of Hollywood sexual harasser Brett Ratner by refusing to sign for a superhero sequel unless the film-maker is completely killed of the franchise.
A Hollywood source tells Page Six that Gadot — who last month backed out of a dinner in honor of Ratner, where she became by him with an award — is taking a strong stance on sexual harassment in Hollywood and don’t want to hit her “Wonder Woman” franchise, to take advantage of a man accused of sexual misconduct.

Ratner’s production company RatPac-Dune Entertainment helped produce “Wonder Woman” as part of the co-financing deal with Warner Bros. The film has grossed more than $400 million at the international level, and Ratner’s is a healthy share of the profits. Warner Bros. an insider explained, “Brett made a lot of money from the success of ‘Wonder Woman,’ thanks to his company to have helped with the financing of the first film. Now Gadot says she won’t sign for the sequel, unless the Warner Bros. buy Brett [of his funding deal] and get rid of him.”
The source added, Israeli-born Gadot, “She is strong and stands by her principles. They also know the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. on the side with her on this issue as it develops. They can be a film rooted in the emancipation of women is part funded by a man accused of sexual misconduct against women.”
This past week, Warner Bros. was announced the severing of ties with Ratner in the midst of multiple sexual-harassment allegations leveled against him by actresses including Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge. Ratner has vehemently denied the allegations through his lawyer, Marty Singer.
