Colin Trevorrow Responds to Joss Whedon's Critiscism of First 'Jurassic World' Clip

JamesArthurArmstrong JamesArthurArmstrong Back in April, Universal released the first clip from Jurassic World that left many baffled at why the studio would release such a clip for their first look at the summer blockbuster.

Many fans didn't give it a great response with the most critical coming from 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' director Joss Whedon who slammed the clip for being "70s era sexist." Now, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has responded back at Whedon's damning words.

Trevorrow was speaking to Bad Taste during his international press tour for the movie when he was asked about his opinion on the comment. "I wasn’t bothered by what he said about the movie and, to be honest, I don’t totally disagree with him,” the director said. “I wonder why Universal chose a clip like that, that shows an isolated situation within a movie that has an internal logic. That starts with characters that are almost archetypes, stereotypes that are deconstructed as the story progresses. The real protagonist of the movie is Claire and we embrace her femininity in the story’s progression. There’s no need for a female character that does things like a male character, that’s not what makes interesting female characters in my view. Bryce and I have talked a lot about these concepts and aspects of her character.”
