“She got the essence of Wonder Woman because it lives inside her,” Carter said. “She took the challenge of this miracle of an idea and a ’70s iconic TV show and she made the ‘she’ become the ‘we’ on the big screen all over the world.”

The tennis ace took a night off from looking after her 2-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., to attend Glamour’s 2017 Women of the Year Awards in Brooklyn, New York, on Monday.

Williams completed her look by pulling her hair into a high ponytail and rocking matte plum lipstick.

Following her scene-stealing appearance in Batman v Superman, Wonder Woman finally gets her own movie. Yes, she brought the Junkie Xl theme with her, the whole thing revolves around the silly Dawn of Justice, and there’s an obscene amount of speed-ramping, but bear with it, because Wonder Woman is actually, refreshingly, breathtakingly good.
With a few additions, this origin tale tells the story of Wonder Woman as the comic book literate would recognise it: moulded from clay and raised as an Amazon warrior on the all-female island of Themyscira, Diana – daughter of Queen Hippolyta and King of the Gods Zeus – travels to the world of mortals
Directed by Patty Jenkins.
Starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewan Bremner, Lucy Davis, Eugene Brave Rock, Emily Carey, Lilly Aspell, and Saïd Taghmaoui.
After a fighter pilot crash lands on her home island, an Amazonian princess leaves the safety of her home and joins the battle of Wwi, discovering her superpowers along the way.
It would be fair to say that the DC Extended Universe has gotten off to a fairly shaky start with some mixed reactions to the three movies already released, those being Man of Steel, Suicide Squad and Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, Wonder Woman, film number four, has proven to be a step in a more positive direction with a theatrical run that brought millions of paying customers through cinema doors to see the first full big screen adventure for the Amazonian princess.
“Kate and I have been looking for something to do together for 20 years, since our collaboration on ‘Titanic,’ which was one of the most rewarding of my career,” Cameron said. “I can’t wait to see her bring the character of Ronal to life.”
The four sequels will hit theaters starting on Dec. 18, 2020 for “Avatar 2.” “Avatar 3” will open on Dec. 17, 2021, followed by a three-year break for “Avatar 4,” set for Dec. 20, 2024. “Avatar 5” will then debut on Dec. 19, 2025.
Cameron began filming the first of the four Fox movies last week in California. The creator of the original “Avatar” — the 2009 fantasy epic that remains the all-time worldwide box office champion with $2.8 billion — first announced plans for four pics in 2016. He had initially envisioned two sequels, but after meeting with the screenwriters, artists,

At the time, Wonder Woman helmer Patty Jenkins posted a measured response to Cameron’s remarks, and with the Avatar director subsequently stating this week that he stands by his comments, TV’s Wonder Woman Lynda Carter has now issued her own rather firm rebuttal via her Facebook page.
“To James Cameron -Stop dissing Ww: You poor soul. 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–because I
James Cameron spoke out in August about the movie not breaking ground for women in any way shape or form. In addition, he inferred that Wonder Woman should have been more like Sarah Connor in his Terminator 2, saying that Diana Prince should have been flawed and not as pleasing on the eyes as Gal Gadot is.
Last month, the director of five “Avatar” movies dismissed the DC hit, declaring the superheroine “an objectified icon,” calling the picture “a step backwards,” and then trumpeting his own Sarah Connor from “The Terminator” movies as the ideal female heroes should strive for.

Carter -- who famously played the Amazonian warrior princess in the live-action Wonder Woman television series from 1975 to 1979 -- took to Facebook on Thursday to call out the Avatar director for continuing to criticize the recent Wonder Woman film, as well as director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Gadot.
"To James Cameron -Stop dissing Ww: You poor soul," Carter wrote. "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," she continued. "This movie was spot on. Gal Gadot was great. I know, Mr. Cameron--because I have embodied this character for more than 40 years. So--stop It."

“You poor soul,” she wrote. “Your thuggish jabs at a brilliant director, Patty Jenkins, are ill advised. This movie was spot on. I know, Mr. Cameron — because I have embodied this character for more than 40 years. So — Stop It.”
Cameron’s original comments, which he recently doubled down on, came in early August, when he criticized “Wonder Woman’s” favorable reception. He called the film’s glowing reviews “misguided,” and said that Wonder Woman was “an objectified icon.” He continued that the film was “a step backwards,” and that his own creation, Sarah Connor of the “Terminator” franchise, was a better female protagonist.
These comments elicited a response from Jenkins at the time, who wrote in a tweet that Cameron’s “inability to understand” Wonder Woman was
