James Cameron Calls ‘Wonder Woman’ A Step Backwards, Patty Jenkins Responds

James Cameron, director of films such as The Terminator, Aliens, and Avatar, had some pretty…interesting things to say about Wonder Woman to The Guardian.

He claimed he liked the movie, but that it was a “step backwards” for Hollywood.

“All of the self-congratulatory back-patting Hollywood’s been doing over Wonder Woman has been so misguided. She’s an objectified icon, and it’s just male Hollywood doing the same old thing! I’m not saying I didn’t like the movie but, to me, it’s a step backwards.”

Following Cameron’s controversial comments, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins used Twitter as an outlet to express her opinion on the matter.

To me, it’s challenging to understand the point Cameron was attempting to get at. Wonder Woman was so powerful in today’s day and age because it didn’t limit the character to being a damsel in distress or another cliche female token-esque character. Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince was the hero of the film, and she carried herself gracefully.

What are your thoughts on the fued between Cameron and Jenkins? Did you enjoy Wonder Woman? Comment below, let me know.
