Views clash about what makes Wonder Woman
THE Australian artist who has been drawing Wonder Woman for more than a decade has hit back at director James Cameron’s negative commentsmments on the superhero movie.
Despite Wonder Woman’ss enormous suc- cess at the boxx office, Cameron says the film is not as groundbreaking as many criticss claim.
He says he createdtd a strongt female character in Sarah Connor in the Terminator films, but called Wonder Woman’s portrayal by actor Gal Gadot (pictured) overly sexualised and simplistic.
Artist Nicola Scott said Cameron didn’t understand Wonder Wom Woman’s strength or o otherworldliness.
“He’s right in th that when he crea ated Sarah Connor he really provided someth thing new for the general audience, a new kind of female role model, but I don’t think h he owns theth licencel on female empowerment,” she said. “To say all women need to be that complicated and that messy to be strong is really confining.”
