Wonder Woman is all about female empowerment and an island full of beautiful warrior women who somehow reproduce without men because of feminist magic (That’s not a read – Themyscira seems to be doing just fine without penis). Hence, it’s a little problematic that alleged serial sexual harasser Brett Ratner’s production company, RatPac-Dune Entertainment, helped co-produce the first movie. Page Six is reporting that Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, is refusing to don the tiara and bullet-defying bracelets for a sequel unless Brett is removed from the project. She also backed out of presenting him with an award at some dinner last month. What did he win? “Most Accurate Last Name?“
RatPac-Dune Entertainment helped produce Wonder Woman as part of a co-financing deal with Warner Bros. The movie made almost $400 million worldwide, so Brett can afford a lot of shrimp cocktail with which to allegedly menace women.
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. Now Gadot is saying she won’t sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him.”
The source went on to say that Gal is a tough cookie, and knows cutting off any future Wonder Woman profits would hit Brett where it hurts
in his cocaine budget.
She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops. They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man accused of sexual misconduct against women.”
Warner Brothers gave Page Six a one-word answer when asked for comment – “False!” (The Warner Brothers flack must have had a lot of calls on hold that day.)
Gal Gadot was a “combat trainer” in the Israeli Defense Forces. She also prefers to do her own stunts when she can. She’s about 8 feet tall and could probably step on Ratner, driving him down to the center of the earth to live amongst the rest of the subterranean creep mole people. In other words. Ratner should grab all the shrimp cocktail he can off the craft services table and make for the exit before Diana Prince makes quick work of him!
