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.

'Wonder Woman 2' to Make Patty Jenkins the Highest Paid Female Director in Hollywood!

Patty Jenkins is very close to signing a deal to direct the upcoming Wonder Woman sequel and a report claims her salary will make her the highest paid female director in Hollywood!

The director reportedly has been holding out on signing on for the film until Warner Bros. offered her compensation that was equivalent to what a male director of her caliber would get.

The first Wonder Woman movie was a massive hit and grossed over $800 million at the worldwide box office and continues to grow.

Deadline reports that a director who is first starting out on a comic book movie typically gets between $1.5 million and $3 million, but major directors like Justice League‘s Zack Snyder can command $10 million.

We hope to hear that Patty has signed her deal soon!

'Wonder Woman' Roller Coaster at Six Flags Will Make History!

Wonder Woman will become the first female superhero to have a roller coaster named after her and the ride will be making history in another way!

The ride will be the first “single-rail” IBox track coaster in the world, meaning it will ride on a single track instead of the normal two rails like other coasters.

“I expect it to be crazy smooth,” Larry Chickola, Six Flags VP and chief corporate engineer, told USA Today in a statement. “And crazy fun. There will be extremely quick twists and turns – quicker and smoother than regular coasters.”

There will only be eight seats in each train and riders will ride in single file with no one on their left or right. Not only will the riders not see anyone on either side of them, they also won’t see the track!

Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Caster will open next spring at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio.
