In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, James said that he “stood by” his criticisms, adding that he while he “[applauds] Hollywood ‘letting’ a woman direct a major action franchise” he didn’t think that there was “anything groundbreaking in Wonder Woman.”

So as much as I applaud Patty directing the film and Hollywood, uh, “letting” a woman direct a major action franchise, I didn't think there was anything groundbreaking in Wonder Woman. I thought it was a good film. Period. I was certainly shocked that [my comment] was a controversial statement. It was pretty obvious in my mind. I just think Hollywood doesn't get it about women in commercial franchises. Drama, they've got that cracked, but the second they start to make a big commercial action film, they think they have to appeal to 18-year-old males or 14-year-old males, whatever it is. Look, it was probably a little bit of a simplistic remark on my part, and I'm not walking it back, but I will add a little detail to it, which is: I like the fact that, sexually, she had the upper hand with the male character, which I thought was fun.
