TGL Round-Up: James Cameron Calls Wonder Woman A ‘Step Backwards’, Avatar Sequels Finally In Production


James Cameron has some choice words for the Wonder Woman movie.

“I’m not saying I didn’t like the movie but, to me, it’s a step backwards,” Cameron told the Guardian in an interview. “Sarah Connor was not a beauty icon. She was strong, she was troubled, she was a terrible mother, and she earned the respect of the audience through pure grit. And to me, [the benefit of characters like Sarah] is so obvious. I mean, half the audience is female!”

Wonder Woman has a sequel planned for Dec. 19, 2019 and stars Gal Gadot.

The long awaited sequels to Avatar are finally underway.

“Oh, we’re in production,” says Cameron, talking to EW ahead of the release of Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D (in theatres Aug. 25). “We’re in full-tilt production. We’re in what we call ‘scouting,’ which basically is shooting for me. I’m on the stage all day long during the scouting process, because there are no sets or locations, other than in the virtual world, so I do all my location-scouting with a troop of actors that go through the virtual sets, and give me a sense of the scale and position, lighting, that sort of thing. Then, I’m in rehearsals with my principal cast and I start with them at the end of September.”

The first of those four sequels is scheduled for release on Dec. 18, 2020, with the subsequent three arriving Dec. 17, 2021, Dec. 20, 2024, and Dec. 19, 2025.



  1. James Cameron has a point. He didn’t exactly cast beauties in his movies. That didn’t stop him objectifying the fuck out of Jamie Lee Curtis in True Lies, though.


    • Imagine being Arnold in that scene and having to be all like “damn, Jamie Curtis, you fuckin’ fine, all sexy with your tight body and horrific androgynous monster face. I would totally have sex with you, both my character and the real me.” when all he really wants to do is fuck another 16 year old in his dressing room. Like seriously imagine having to be Arnold and not only sit in that chair while Jamie Lee Curtis flaunts her disgusting body in front of you, the favorable lighting barely concealing her stretch-marks and leathery skin, and just sit there, take after take, hour after hour, while she perfected that dance. Not only having to tolerate her monstrous fucking visage but her haughty attitude as everyone on set tells her she’s STILL GOT IT and DAMN, JAMIE LEE CURTIS LOOKS LIKE THAT?? because they’re not the ones who have to sit there and watch her mannish fucking gremlin face contort into types of grimaces you didn’t even know existed before that day. You’ve been fucking nothing but a healthy diet of blondes and supermodels and later alleged rape victims for your ENTIRE CAREER coming straight out of the boonies in Austria. You’ve never even seen anything this fucking disgusting before, and now you swear you can taste the sweat that’s breaking out on her dimpled stomach as she sucks it in to writhe it suggestively at you, smugly assured that you are enjoying the opportunity to get paid to sit there and revel in her “statuesque (for that is what she calls herself)” beauty, the beauty she worked so hard for with personal trainers in the previous months. And then the director calls for another take, and you know you could kill every single person in this room before the studio security could put you down, but you sit there and endure, because you’re fucking Arnold. You’re not going to lose your future political career over this. Just bear it. Hide your face and bear it.


  2. People love doubting Cameron and he loves proving them wrong with the final product. Titanic and Avatar were both set to be flops according to the trades. Look how that turned out. Don’t count Cameron out until three months after the release.
