James Cameron Says 'Wonder Woman' is a Step Backwards for Feminism

James Cameron has a controversial view on the movie Wonder Woman and it being celebrated as a major feminist achievement.

The 63-year-old director, best known for helming Titanic and Avatar, was asked for his opinion on the success of the DC Comics movie.

“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!” Cameron told The Guardian.

He did make sure to let it be known that he is still a fan of the movie.

“I’m not saying I didn’t like the movie but, to me, it’s a step backwards. [Terminator character] Sarah Connor was not a beauty icon. She was strong, she was troubled, she was a terrible mother, and she earned the respect of the audience through pure grit. And to me, [the benefit of characters like Sarah] is so obvious. I mean, half the audience is female!” he added.

    Okay so if you’re beautiful you can’t be feminist?

    Cool story Cameron!

    So they can’t be feminine and wholesome? This was a great adaptation of a character that has been around for decades. He needs to get over himself!

  • Effy

    Ha! Sounds like someone’s feelings are hurt that his female character didn’t get attention like WW. Get over it. I’m sure he will issue an apology soon and that his words were “taken out of context.”

    There is never an ugly Batman or Superman either so what is his point exactly? James Cameron always seems to be so envious and dismissive of other Director’s work. Since he could not find fault with how How the film was produced, cast or directed, he had to find something petty to moan about.😩😤😡

    Maybe it was a grimm ending, with modern films such as Van Helsing.
