"...ein Schritt zurück!" Regisseur James Cameron über WONDER WOMAN / Regisseurin Patty Jenkins kontert / Gal Gadot im "Rolling Stone" Interview war von ihm vielleicht nicht so gemeint, wie es im Interview klang, aber Regisseur James Cameron's "step backwards" Kommentar zum erfolgreichen "Wonder Woman" Kinofilm seiner Kollegin Patty Jenkins  hat unter vielen Lesern, aber auch Zuschauern und Fans des Films für Entrüstung und Unverständnis gesorgt.

James Cameron zur britischen Tageszeitung "The Guardian":

“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!”

Patty Jenkins kontert Cameron daraufhin gegenüber dem "THR":

"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. 

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. 

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."
