Although Cameron willfully ignored that Wonder Woman’s characterization as strong, kind, wise, and beautiful comes from William Moulton Marston’s source material, Jenkins doesn’t so much call him out for that oversight as demonstrate the same patience and diplomacy that so many women have to when men think to tell them how to do their jobs. She graciously acknowledges his support of her 2003 film Monster, which centered on the kind of “damaged but tough” woman character Cameron seems to think he invented with the Terminator franchise. But unlike Cameron, she knows that there are—gasp—different ways to create multidimensional women characters, so sticking to one blueprint for any and all badass-types is not only shortsighted, but would actually represent the regression Cameron claims he saw in the best received DC film so far. Also, in case he wasn’t aware, women will decide for themselves what has a strong feminist message and what doesn’t. It’s as close to a “cool story, bro” as we’re likely to get.
