Wonder Woman: Patty Jenkins Responds to James Cameron’s Criticism

“Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins hit back at James Cameron, who in a recent interview called the superhero film a “step backwards.”

In a tweet, she said “James Cameron’s inability to understand what Wonder Woman is, or stands for, to women all over the world is unsurprising as, though, he is a great filmmaker, he is not a woman.”

In an interview published Thursday by The Guardian, Cameron said Hollywood’s “self-congratulatory back-patting” over “’Wonder Woman’ has been so misguided.”

He continued: “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.”
