Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has hit back at fellow filmmaker James Cameron’s criticisms of the movie, claiming that he has an “inability to understand what Wonder Woman is or stands for.”

Cameron, behind massive blockbusters like Titanic and Avatar, said in an interview via The Guardian on Friday (August 25th) that Jenkins’ depiction of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman was a “step backwards” and that the reaction to it from the film industry was just “self-congratulatory back-patting”.

“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,” he said, then pointing to his own Terminator film for a better example of what he meant.
