What annoys me about Cameron's comments is that he was basically saying Wonder Woman was far too perfect, she needed to be knocked down a few pegs. But Wonder Woman was, imo, a successful female power fantasy. She wasn't objectified, she was fierce in a way that female viewers watched and wanted to be. The filming was perfect - no lingering ass shots, no shots of her looking broken and vulnerable, just her being a titan of a person.

It's okay, on occasion, to have characters like that. Unless Cameron has the same criticism to every perfect male superhero, then I don't want to hear it. Not every powerful woman needs to be a bad mother or have body image issues or needs a man to teach her how to love.

No one's complaining that Thor is a bad aspirational character because he looks beautiful in almost every shot.

Now I want like... a slo-mo glamour edit of the Thor movies with his hair swaying and shimmering in the light like he has his own wind tunnel like they do to chicks in Bollywood flicks.

Honestly having both perfect and imperfect women in media is something I consider a good thing, it's not like we're all the same.

Thank you, yes. I agree with your statement and Patty Jenkins' as well.

love is a powerful thing. Caring is as well. And Wonder Woman did all of that while looking beautiful.

Well said. You never hear people complaining that male superheroes aren't good enough because there weren't any lingering shots of them scantily clad and sobbing in the shower after being beaten up or whatever. Cameron's mistake is not in thinking that Sarah Connor is a great female icon, it's in thinking that there's only one way to accomplish it - HIS way.
