'Wonder Woman 2' moves away from 'Star Wars', up to November 2019

According to a report over the weekend, Gadot has put her foot down, refusing to play the powerful Princess Diana again until Brett Ratner is completely cut out of the universe. Ratner has been accused by several women of sexual assault, including rape by a former employee.

"She's tough and stands by her principles". Gadot, a former soldier in the Israeli army and the victor of the 2004 Miss Israel pageant, hit Hollywood as a fresh face for American audiences, so GQ writer Caity Weaver travelled to Tel Aviv to find out more about this real-life wonder of a woman.

The new release date of November 1 for Wonder Woman 2 puts it a week away from the as-yet untitled 25th James Bond movie, which decided on November 8 back in July this year, and confirmed Daniel Craig's return a month later.

If Warner Bros.is smart, they'll ditch Ratner quicker than the Millennium Falcon making the Kessel Run.

"Brett made a lot of money from the success of Wonder Woman, thanks to his company having helped finance the first movie", a Warner Bros. insider told Page Six.

"He walked out. with his belly sticking out, no trousers on, shrimp cocktail in one hand and he was furiously masturbating in the other", she told the Los Angeles Times.

For now, Warner Bros.is denying reports of Gadot's holdout to Page Six and neither Gadot nor Ratner has publicly responded to the story.

A representative for Warner Bros. said the report was false.

Audiences responded so well to her character that Gadot's Amazon warrior is now at the forefront of the marketing for Justice League, which purports to ditch the more somber tone of previous movies in the series like Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman.

Earlier this month, Warner Bros. severed its ties with Ratner amid multiple sexual harassment claims made against him.

"'You should f-ck her to make her realise she's gay.' He said this about me during a cast and crew "meet and greet" before we began filming, X-Men: The Last Stand", Ellen wrote on Facebook.
