According to Page Six, Gadot has refused to sign on for the superhero sequel unless Warner Bros. cuts ties with Ratner and his production company RatPac-Dune Entertainment, who helped finance the first film.
As part of the ongoing outpouring of sexual harassment allegations that have come to light since the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Brett Ratner is the latest major Hollywood name whose career is now in jeopardy due to his alleged misconduct in the past. Warner Bros., of course, make DC Comics movies, and one star apparently won't be returning if Rather is involved at all - none other than Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot.
Just yesterday, Anna Paquin backed up Ellen Page's lengthy Facebook post that accused Ratner of homophobic remarks and sexism on the set of X-Men: The Last Stand. Paquin, via Twitter, confirmed that she was in the room when Ratner made the remarks.
Last month, Gadot withdrew from an awards dinner honoring Ratner, who was once accused of masturbating in front of actress Olivia Munn.
Following the first accusations, Brett Ratner has since stepped down.
Ratner said earlier he was personally stepping away from Warner Bros. related activity. In 2013, Warner Bros. signed a lucrative deal with RatPac in which Ratner's company would pony up $450 million in financing for various WB projects.
An insider told the website that the actress will not go against her principles and work with a harasser regardless of the success of the movie.
Presently the Hollywood diva Gal Gadot is announcing she won't engage in the outcome except the Warner Bros. gets Brett out.

The 32-year-old action star is taking a stance against sexual harassment - producer Ratner has been accused of multiple instances of misconduct.
Gadot does not want a film about female empowerment to benefit a man who has been accused of harassment. "Together we stand. We are all united in this time of change".
