If you're one of the many superhero fans champing at the bit for the highly anticipated sequel to Warner Bros.'s Wonder Woman, then we have some good news and some bad news.

The news emerges amid unfounded reports suggesting Gadot had threatened to quit as Wonder Woman unless Warner Bros. executives cut ties with producer Brett Ratner, who helped to finance the first film via his RatPac-Dune Entertainment firm. It should be noted that Gal Gadot will be next seen reprising the role of the Amazonian princess in Zack Snyder's "Justice League", which also stars Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher and Henry Cavill in pivotal roles. This is a month and a half earlier than the previously announced release date.

Gadot is now promoting her return as the Amazonian princess for DC Comics' new Justice League blockbuster, which hits theaters this week (begs13Nov17).

Warner Bros had November 1 put up on the calendar with a yet untitled DC movie.

Gadot and her Justice League costar Ezra Miller - can we just appreciate his shiny blue eyebrow and glittery jacket for a moment?! - recently sat down for an IGN interview, during which the celebs were tasked with asking each other questions.

The 32-year-old was asked by her fellow star to share her thoughts on the "turning of the tides" from a male-dominated society.

Mentioning the recent "turning of the tides" in Hollywood - no doubt a reference to the many people now facing harassment and assault allegations - Miller asked his friend if she would say something for him: "Hetero patriarchy, your wrath upon this world is over".
