Patty Jenkins Fires Back at James Cameron Over 'Wonder Woman' Criticism

Patty Jenkins is fighting back at James Cameron after he made some controversial comments about her film Wonder Woman.

James was quoted in a recent interview saying that he doesn’t think the film should be celebrated as a feminist achievement and instead calls Wonder Woman a step “backwards” for feminism.

Patty – who directed Wonder Woman – took to Twitter to address James‘ comments.

“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,” Patty starts. “Strong women are great. His praise for my film Monster, and our portrayal of a strong yet damaged woman was so appreciated.”

“But if women have to always be hard, tough and troubled to be strong, and we aren’t free to be multidimensional or celebrate an icon of women everywhere because she is attractive and loving, then we haven’t come very far have we,” Patty continues. “I believe women can and should be EVERYTHING just like male lead characters should be. There is no right and wrong kind of powerful woman. And the massive female audience who made the film a hit it is, can surely choose and judge their own icons of progress.”

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.

'Avatar' Sequel Won't Be Ready for 2018, James Cameron Says

If you were looking forward to the next movie in the Avatar franchise next year, you’re going to have to wait longer.

Director James Cameron has revealed that the sequel will not be ready for a 2018 release.

“Well, 2018 is not happening,” he told The Toronto Star. “We haven’t announced a firm release date.”

Cameron is planning four more Avatar movies and all of the scripts have been completed and casting is in place for most of the roles.

“What people have to understand is that this is a cadence of releases. So, we’re not making Avatar 2, we’re making Avatar 2, 3, 4, and 5. It’s an epic undertaking. It’s not unlike building the Three Gorges dam,” he added.

Avatar was released in 2009 and it currently holds the record for the highest grossing movie of all time worldwide with a $2.788 billion gross.

'Titanic' Director James Cameron Remembers Bill Paxton: 'I Will Profoundly Miss Him'

Titanic director James Cameron is honoring the life of his longtime friend Bill Paxton.

In a touching statement, the director remembered Bill, who he worked with on many films including Titanic, Aliens, True Lies and The Terminator.

“I’ve been reeling from this for the past half hour, trying to wrap my mind and heart around it. Bill leaves such a void. He and I were close friends for 36 years, since we met on the set of a Roger Corman ultra-low budget movie,” James told Vanity Fair.

He continued, “It was a friendship of laughter, adventure, love of cinema, and mutual respect. Bill wrote beautiful heartfelt and thoughtful letters, an anachronism in this age of digital shorthand. He took good care of his relationships with people, always caring and present for others. He was a good man, a great actor, and a creative dynamo…The world is a lesser place for his passing, and I will profoundly miss him.”

James Cameron Defends 'Titanic' Ending, Slams 'Mythbusters' Theory That Jack Could Have Lived

James Cameron is setting the record straight on why Leonardo DiCaprio‘s character Jack had to die at the end of Titanic and why the Mythbusters theory that he could have survived is not valid.

Lots of people have questioned why Jack did not try harder to stay afloat on the board with Rose (Kate Winslet) instead of letting her survive alone.

“Look, it’s very, very simple: you read page 147 of the script and it says, ‘Jack gets off the board and gives his place to her so that she can survive.’ It’s that simple. You can do all the post-analysis you want,” James told The Daily Beast in a new interview.
