Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins responded to an open letter allegedly written by a former Warner Bros. employee that slammed the production company for releasing an array of substandard superhero movies, ranging from 2013’s Man of Steel to this month’s Suicide Squad.

The letter then proceeded to allude that Wonder Woman would be a mess, reported Variety.

“Maybe Wonder Woman wouldn’t be such a mess,” the letter states. “Don’t try to hide behind the great trailer. People inside are already confirming it’s another mess. It is almost impressive how you keep rewarding the same producers and executives for making the same mistakes, over and over.”

Although the identity of the letter’s author remains a mystery, Jenkins was less-than-pleased. She released a string of tweets on Friday, responding to the scathing words. “This is some made up crap right here,” Jenkins tweeted. “Produce a source, anyone.” Jenkins went on to write, “You can’t because it’s entirely false. Don’t believe the hype people. Someone’s trying to spread some serious misinformation.”

Though all the films criticised in the letter were indeed critical flops, all managed to gross successfully worldwide.
