Gal Gadot opened up about Brett Ratner’s exit from Wonder Woman 2 and revealed that he and his company had been booted from the project a while ago.
Everybody loves Gal Gadot. Not only is her depiction of Wonder Woman in the DCEU but also because he promotes such good values in her everyday life. She’s basically a real-life Wonder Woman who just happens to play the DC Comis superhero on-screen. There had been reports that she wouldn’t sign onto the project until a certain Brett Ratner was no longer involved. We wrote an article on this story as well, so maybe we’re part of the problem.
Well, it turns out that the story was only half true. Gadot did indeed voice her concerns about having Ratner and his company, RatPac-Dune Entertainment, severed from the project, yet the actor revealed that this all happened a while ago. This is, of course, good news because it means that Gadot will be playing Wonder Woman in the sequel to this year’s blockbuster hit and it also means that Ratner’s money will be nowhere near the project. Patty Jenkins has also signed onto the project, making her the highest paid female director of all time, and she’s currently writing the film’s script.
Gadot revealed all of this during an interview with TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie, stating, “At the end of the day, a lot has been written about my views and the way I feel, and everyone knows the way I feel because I’m not hiding anything,” Gadot said. “But the truth is there’s so many people involved in making this movie and they all echo the same sentiments.”
She continued: “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 the article came out.”
Ratner’s company, RatPac-Dune Entertainment, had co-financed Warner Bros.’ DC Comics projects in the past, but the movie studio has confirmed that they will not be renewing their contract, which is due to expire in April 2018. That said, despite Wonder Woman 2 being slated for release on November 1st, 2019, production on the movie will begin early next year, so it’s unclear as to whether RatPac-Dune Entertainment’s money will be involved in the project indirectly.
You can see Gadot’s Wonder Woman in action next in Justice League, which will open in UK cinemas on November 17th (tomorrow). Are you looking forward to Wonder Woman 2? Let us know in the comments below.
