As we reported yesterday, there’s been much ado about Gal Gadot supposedly bringing the hammer down on Warner Bros. and Brett Ratner. According to a report from Page Six, Gadot had refused to sign on to Wonder Woman 2 without assurances that Brett Ratner’s Ratpac-Dune Entertainment production company would not be involved with the film.

Warner Bros. since stated that the report was false, and now, speaking with ET, both Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins and Gadot herself said their piece on the matter.

Jenkins said:

“That whole thing happened weeks ago, so that actually had nothing to do with Gal. That was a foregone conclusion, I think. I was surprised by that story.”

So there you go. There was, in fact, no ultimatum from Gadot to Warner Bros., as awesome as that would have been.

Speaking to that, Gadot said:

“Look, there’s been a lot written about how I feel and my views about this topic, and everyone knows how I feel about it. And the truth is there are so many people involved with making this movie, and they all have echoed the same sentiments.”

This has all come on the heels of accusations against producer Brett Ratner, who was been accused of sexual harassment (and more) by six women, as well as accused of outing X-Men: The Last Stand actress Ellen Page while at a cast and crew meet and greet.

With all that controversy surrounding him, it makes sense that it wouldn’t have taken Wonder Woman herself to convince Warner Bros. to move on.
