Wonders & Thanks
This week of Thanksgiving, let's be thankful for Gal Gadot, the Wonder Woman wonder, and "everyone" associated with the movie, for getting out from under producer Brett Ratner. Ratner, whose company RatPack-Dune helped finance the first WW film has been accused of sexual harassment and assault. Gadot has her own story about him.
In an interview on the Today show, Gadot confirmed that Ratner would no longer be financing the Wonder Woman franchise, reported the staff writers of Women in the World (NYT)— though she ended rumors that she had threatened to quit the film if Ratner stayed on as a player. Listen to what she said: “The truth is, there’s so many people involved in making this movie — it’s not just me — and they all echoed the same sentiments,” Gadot told staff writers of Women in the World (NYT). “So everyone knew what was the right thing to do.”
We're thankful to "so many people" this year who spoke up, and who agreed on what was right: no more pussy-putdowns by men who just are not funny. Thanks too for WiW.
