Cometh the hour, cometh the O.G. Wonder Woman in desperate times of need.
Lynda Carter has issued a kick-ass response to James Cameron, after the Avatar director yesterday stood by his controversial comments in which he claimed the Wonder Woman movie had “nothing groundbreaking" in it.
Taking to her official Facebook account on Thursday, Carter issued a stern statement to Cameron:
Cameron got into hot water earlier this summer by calling the Patty Jenkins-helmed smash “a step backwards,” and yesterday said that he was standing by his comments.
"Yes, I'll stand by that," Cameron told The Hollywood Reporter. "I mean [Gal Gadot] was Miss Israel, and she was wearing a kind of bustier costume that was very form-fitting. She's absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. To me, that's not breaking ground."
Jenkins’ issued a response to Cameron’s initial comments at the time, responding via Twitter, in part: “Strong women are great... But if women have to always be hard, tough and troubled to be strong, and we aren’t free to be multidimensional or celebrate an icon of women everywhere because she is attractive and loving, then we haven’t come very far have we.”
Wonder Woman has broken numerous box office records since it’s June release earlier this year. It has currently made just over $820 million at the global box office, making it the most successful female superhero movie of all-time.
