James Cameron heeft kritiek op Wonder Woman

Avatar en Titanic regisseur James Cameron uitte fikse kritiek op Patty Jenkins‘ Wonder Woman. In een interview met The Guardian liet hij weten dat de film geen stap vooruit is voor vrouwen, maar juist achteruit:

“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! I’m not saying I didn’t like the movie but, to me, it’s a step backwards. 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!”

Jenkins reageerde vervolgens via Twitter op het commentaar van Cameron.
