Lynda Carter absolutely blasts James Cameron for his 'Wonder Woman' criticism

You might have thought that would be the end of it when Director Patty Jenkins shut down James Cameron's unnecessary trashing of Wonder Woman, wherein he managed to hold himself up as a feminist standard.

This likely won't be the last we hear of Cameron on this particular topic as a Wonder Woman sequel is due out in December 2019 with Jenkins returning to the director's chair and Gadot reprising her role as the title character. "To me, that's not breaking ground", he told the trade mag of Gal.

"They had Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the '60s." he said.

He also took a minute to talk again about how much better Linda Hamilton's Sarah Connor was than Gadot's Wonder Woman.

"Your thuggish jabs at a brilliant director, Patty Jenkins, are ill advised", Carter wrote.

"She's an objectified icon, and it's just male Hollywood doing the same old thing!"

France worldwide Giroud brought up his century with a second-half penalty to help secure an important 4-2 win in Belarus. Chris Willock was making his full debut for the Gunners but looked extremely comfortable in the centre of midfield.

The Supergirl actress also gave a shout-out to the new Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot, writing, "This movie was spot on". Gal Gadot was great. I know, Mr. Cameron-I have embodied this character for more than 40 years.

And if there's a person who does not like the content of his statements, it is Lynda Carter, the performer of the heroine in the legendary series, which has long crystallized his image (and he won an aura of kitsch rather unfair to the general public).

Cameron came under fire back in August when he called the record-breaking movie "a step backwards". "She was strong, she was troubled, she was a awful mother, and she earned the respect of the audience through pure grit", he said.

She added: "I believe women can and should be EVERYTHING just like male lead characters should be. I mean, half the audience is female!" It was all in a context of talking about why Sarah Connor - what Lynda created in 1991 - was, if not ahead of its time, at least a breakthrough in its time.

Jenkins, 46, went on, "Strong women are great". She was insane, she was complicated.

Cameron doubled down on his Wonder Woman comments in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, saying he stood by his earlier remarks. I just think Hollywood doesn't get it about women in commercial franchises.
