As we previously reported, director James Cameron back in August made controversial comments on regarding Wonder Woman, while he did say he liked the film, he felt it objectified women and sent the feminist movement back.
Cameron has since added to his original statement in an interview with Rolling Stone, explaining why he feels this way, but in turn just repeats himself:
Yes, I’ll stand by that,” Cameron said of calling the titular character as an “objectified icon.” “I mean, [Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot] was Miss Israel and she was wearing a kind of bustier costume that was very form-fitting. She’s absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. To me, that’s not breaking ground. They had Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the Sixties.”
“Linda looked great,” he said. “She just wasn’t treated as a sex object. There was nothing sexual about her character. It was about angst, it was about will, it was about determination. She was crazy, she was complicated. … She wasn’t there to be liked or ogled, but she was central, and the audience loved her by the end of the film.”
Lynda Carter who played the second live action version of Wonder Woman on television, spoke on his opinion and defended director Patty Jenkins, as she felt he was taking jabs at a great director. She also pointed out that she has been the character for over 40 years and understands the character deeply.
To James Cameron -STOP dissing WW: You poor soul. Perhaps you do not understand the character. I most certainly… https://t.co/f7yuIzA7j1
