The original Wonder Woman just shot down James Cameron and it’s perfect

“To James Cameron -STOP dissing WW: You poor soul. Perhaps you do not understand the character. I most certainly do. Like all women–we are more than the sum of our parts. Your thuggish jabs at a brilliant director, Patty Jenkins, are ill advised. This movie was spot on. Gal Gadot was great. I know, Mr. Cameron–because I have embodied this character for more than 40 years. So–STOP IT.”— Lynda Carter, the actress who played Wonder Woman on TV in the ’70s series, in an open Facebook post to James Cameron. The famed Avatar director has criticized the new Wonder Woman multiple times as being a “step backward” for strong female characters. “She was Miss Israel, and she was wearing a kind of bustier costume that was very form-fitting,” Cameron most recently said, referring to the film’s star Gal Gadot. “She’s absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. To me, that’s not breaking ground. They had Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the 60s.”
