Gadot's supposed ultimatum, though immediately refuted by Warner Bros., was met with overwhelming support from fans and industry professionals alike, who felt the actress was living up to her DC superhero role.

Gadot, although she didn't necessarily address the report, reiterated her position on the matter: "There [has] been a lot written about how I feel and my views about this topic, and everyone knows how I feel about it".

She said, "everyone knew what the right thing to do". "There was nothing for me to actually come and say, because it was already done before this article came out", Gadot said.

As part of the ongoing fallout from the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal, six women, including actresses Natasha Henstridge and Olivia Munn, came forward with their stories of the director of movies like X-Men: The Last Stand terrorizing them.

However, Warner Bros. has claimed that although the deal with Ratner's production company, Rat-Pac Entertainment, is set to expire next year and was never meant to include Wonder Woman 2.

Page Six had quoted an unnamed Warner Brothers source as saying Gadot was "tough and stands by her principles". Munn alleged that while visiting the set of the 2004 Ratner-directed film After the Sunset, he masturbated in front of her. Henstridge claimed she was 19 when Ratner forced her to perform oral sex on him in his NY apartment. In response to the Page Six report, a Warner Bros. spokesperson offered simply, "It's false".

Addressing the issue, Warner Bros.

Ratner's production company helped finance the film's $149 million budget, but it also reaped the benefits from the over $821 million worldwide gross.

That seems to be true, as Entertainment Weekly reported that Warner Bros. was "severing ties to Brett Ratner", which is something that director Patty Jenkins also backed up.

The article will be published Wednesday, but the monthly has already posted a teaser on its website, touting Gadot as a former Miss Israel and soldier in that nation's army, and a "real-life badass".

However, the second sequel of Wonder Woman is set to be released on November 1, 2019.
