If there’s anything James Cameron knows, it’s doubling down on something he believes is right. You can see it in his filmmaking, his franchise planning, and even his views on current events. And just as predicted, Cameron did just that with recent remarks about Wonder Woman. He maintained actress Gal Gadot was just too beautiful in the role, and now Lynda Carter has some choice words for the director.
Originally, James Cameron’s comments against the DCEU’s bonafide hit was that instead of being a win for equality, Wonder Woman was still a very objectified film figure. And his recent clarifications once again focused on Gal Gadot’s beauty and costume design, citing that Linda Hamilton’s character in Terminator is more groundbreaking. And while pieces of his reasoning may hold up, the overall slam on the vital success that is Wonder Woman hasn’t been met well by the public.
