Wonder Woman director responds to James Cameron criticism: 'Though he is a great filmmaker, he is not a woman'

“All of the self-congratulatory back-patting Hollywood’s been doing over Wonder Woman has been so misguided,” he told the newspaper. “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 continued. “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!”
