She's not just an onscreen wonder woman it seems...

Since the Harvey Weinstein allegations that saw over 50 women come forward with sexual harassment and assault claims about the producer, other alleged harassers have been revealed.

The men accused of sexual harassment now include some very high profile names, from Dustin Hoffman and Kevin Spacey to Ben Affleck and Ed Westwick.

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 producer has been accused of sexual harassment and misconduct by six women this month, surfacing in a report by the LA Times.

One of the women to come forward against Ratner was Hollywood actress Olivia Munn who accused the producer of masturbating in front of her on the set of a 2004 film, going on to 'bang' her and then allegedly ejaculating over magazine covers featuring the actress.

Munn however was dissuaded from pressing charges as the director was thought to be too powerful and capable of crushing her as an actress.

'That did leave an impact on me,' she explained recently. 'How broken do women have to be before people listen?'

Well Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot is certainly listening, with the 32-year-old taking a stand against harassers for women everywhere.

According to Page Six, Gadot, the star of Wonder Woman and Ratner’s project Wonder Woman 2, will quit unless the producer is fired from the project.

‘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,’ a source told Page Six.

The source continued: ‘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. They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man accused of sexual misconduct against women.’

Once again here’s proof that Gal Gadot is a real-life Wonder Woman.
