It has started a lively conversation about the depiction of female characters in films. This, of course, all started when James Cameron shared his thoughts on the new Wonder Woman (2017) in an interview with the Guardian:

“All of the self-congratulatory back-patting Hollywood’s been doing over Wonder Woman has been so misguided. She’s an objectified icon, and it’s just male Hollywood doing the same old thing! I’m not saying I didn’t like the movie but, to me, it’s a step backwards.”

Hadley Freeman has followed up with another column on the James Cameron interview. And, I would say that I agree with the points raised. I would love to see more Ripleys and Sarah Connors on the silver screen. I think TV, Netflix and Amazon are much better in that regard. Maybe Atomic Blond (2017) will buck the trend. Yet to see it, but it is on my list.
