Lynda Carter Slams James Cameron's 'Thuggish' Comments About 'Wonder Woman'

Lynda Carter is not putting up with James Cameron‘s criticism of Wonder Woman.

The 66-year-old actress – who portrayed the female superhero in the 1970s TV show – took to her Facebook account to slam the Avatar director for calling the Wonder Woman film starring Gal Gadot a step “backwards” for feminism.

“To James Cameron -STOP dissing WW: You poor soul,” Lynda wrote. “Perhaps you do not understand the character. I most certainly do. Like all women–we are more than the sum of our parts. Your thuggish jabs at a brilliant director, Patty Jenkins, are ill advised. This movie was spot on. Gal Gadot was great. I know, Mr. Cameron–I have embodied this character for more than 40 years. So–STOP IT.”

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.
