The new Wonder Woman movie has been widely celebrated as a feminist achievement since its release, acting as a large step forward for the feminist movement and even gaining the support of the UN. However, in light of the recent controversies relating to her role as a female ambassador for the female empowerment campaign, James Cameron, director of award-winning Titanic and Avatar has shared his thoughts on the character of Diana Prince, labeling her as somewhat of a feminist failure as opposed to figure.

“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.”

Since then, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has responded to Cameron’s comment tweeting, “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.”

You can take a look at what she has to say below and let us know what you think.

Despite this, DC and Warner Bros confirmed the official release date for Wonder Woman 2.
