Gal Gadot shimmers at Justice League world premiere: see all the pictures from the red carpet
It looks like Gal Gadot can do no wrong.
After storming the international box office with Wonder Woman, the Israeli actress (32) is officially one of the most in-demand stars around, both for upcoming projects and among designers clamouring to dress her on the red carpet.
Gadot led the A-list red carpet on Monday night for the world premiere of Justice League in Hollywood, dazzling in an embellished Altuzarra dress with slashed cut-out detail, alongside co-stars Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Ezra Miller (The Flash) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg).
Amber Heard opted for a semi-sheer beaded dress by Atelier Versace and co-star Connie Nielsen covered up in an off the shoulder black gown with slit detail, also by Altuzarra.
While films outside comic book universes are few and far between these days, Gadot has been using her newfound fame as a force for good and is reportedly refusing to sign on for the Wonder Woman sequel unless producer Brett Ratner, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by several different actresses, is no longer involved.
"She’s tough and stands by her principles. She also knows the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops," a source told the New York Post.
"They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man accused of sexual misconduct against women."
Ratner's deal with the studio does not expire until 2018 so the studio is faced with a tough decision.
A Warner Bros insider reportedly told Page Six: Brett made a lot of money from the success of 'Wonder Woman,' thanks to his company having helped finance the first movie. Now Gadot is saying she won't sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him."
