Wonder Woman’s Gal Gadot broke her silence on her stance towards alleged sexual harasser Brett Ratner with Savannah Guthrie on Today.
A recent report suggested Gadot would refuse to participate in any Wonder Woman sequels if Brett Ratner and his RatPac-Dune Entertainment production company was associated with the projects. RatPac-Dune Entertainment co-financed Wonder Woman. However, Warner Bros. has since severed ties with both Ratner and RatPac-Dune Entertainment.
Ratner was accused by six women including Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge of sexual misconduct. Ratner through his attorney Martin Signer denied all of the accusations. While Warner Bros. severed their ties with Ratner, they are still honoring their contract through March which includes financing of Justice League, Father Figures, Clint Eastwood’s 15:17 to Paris, Game Night, Tomb Raider, and Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One adaptation.
Gadot spoke to Guthrie about Ratner’s removal after the two revealed a sneak peek for the upcoming Justice League which shows the dire situation the League faces. Jim Gordon details 8 people have been abducted from Star Labs and reveals an image of a Parademon as the potential perp. It also reveals that the Parademons are hunting for motherboxes.
At the end of the day, a lot has been written about my views and the way that I feel, and everyone knows the way that I feel because I’m not hiding anything. But the truth is, there’s so many people involved in making this movie, and they all echo the same sentiments. Everyone knew what was the right thing to do, but there was nothing for me to actually come and say, because it was already done before this article came out.
Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017. The film stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and Ezra Miller as The Flash.
