Last month, Gadot backed out of an event celebrating Ratner where he was to receive Tree of Life Award from the Jewish National Fund, with the actress stating at the time that she was busy promoting Justice League and would be unavailable.

Warner Bros. has reportedly cut contractual ties with Ratner and RatPac-Dune Entertainment, likely predicated on Gadot's threat to exit from the cast of the next Wonder Woman film unless the studio ended their co-financing deal with RatPac-Dune, the Ratner company that co-produced the original "Wonder Woman" hit film.

The most recent Hollywood male to have come under fire however is producer Brett Ratner, whose well-known work ranges from the Rush Hour series, X-Men and Horrible Bosses, to his most recent project, Wonder Woman 2.

The source then added of the Israeli-born Gadot saying, "She's tough and stands by her principles".

As the insider further explained, Gadot knew the distributor would side with her on this issue.

Ever since Ratner joined the numerous men in the film industry to be accused of sexual harassment, Gadot laid down the law - either he goes, or she goes - and we all know they can't afford to lose Wonder Woman!

We can't imagine having anyone else play Wonder Woman other than the charming Gal Gadot.

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

FYI, this man was recently accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, including actresses Ellen Page, Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge. I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out.

Beneath the surface, the Gadot-Warner-Ratner tangle could prove even more expensive for Warners than it already is.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior.

It's certainly a news story that makes it clear the Israeli actress was a flawless choice for Diana Prince, as it would suggest she is using her newfound A-list status to actually enforce a change benefitting women in her industry.
