Lynda Carter to James Cameron: Stop dissing 'Wonder Woman'

Original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter has turned on “poor soul” James Cameron for criticizing Patty Jenkins’ summer blockbuster.
Israeli actress Gal Gadot took over the role for this year’s big hit and Lynda, who portrayed the superheroine character on TV from 1975 to 1979, thinks she did a great job, despite Cameron’s public condemnation of the latest film.
“To James Cameron - STOP dissing WW: You poor soul,” Carter wrote in a message on her Facebook page on Thursday. “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 - I have embodied this character for more than 40 years. So - STOP IT.”
Lynda’s defence of the movie arrives a day after defiant Cameron refused to back down from comments he made about Jenkins’ film in a new The Hollywood Reporter interview, slamming fellow filmmaker Jenkins’ depiction of the iconic character in her history-making film.
Cameron insisted Patty’s Wonder Woman is a common female cliche for the second time in the article, and claimed he broke more ground for female characters with his Terminator heroine Sarah Connor, played by Linda Hamilton.
“Yes, I’ll stand by that (what I said),” Cameron told THR when asked if he still thought Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman was an “objectified icon”.
“I mean, she (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. They had Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the 60s.”

Patty Jenkins has confirmed what the internet has been whispering for about a week. Kristen Wiig has signed on to play classic DC Comics villain The Cheetah in “Wonder Woman’s” soon-to-be-in-production 2019 sequel.
The director verified the news on social media, tweeting that she’s excited for the casting and can’t wait to work with Wiig on her transformation into one of Wonder Woman’s greatest adversaries.
Other rumors are swirling around the highly-anticipated Warner Bros./DC Entertainment sequel, including a potential setting in the ’80s during the Cold War and Chris Pine’s possible return as Steve Trevor (perhaps in a flashback). But Wiig’s casting is the first major confirmation of the “Wonder Woman” sequel, which could begin filming as early as this May, in preparation for a Nov. 1, 2019 release.
Gal Gadot will return as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince under the direction of Jenkins, who will be continuing Hollywood’s first major female superhero franchise – which will also now have a female villain as well.
