WONDER WOMAN Villain Revealed

Diana’s deadly enemy in WONDER WOMAN has been revealed!

The trailers for Wonder Woman have shown us Diana Prince’s journey and lots of action, but there’s one thing they’ve never been 100 percent clear on: Who is the villain of this story? Well, a new movie tease just revealed the details!

Studio Ciné Live, a French entertainment magazine, recently published the details of their set visit. The article is not online in full, but key passages were translated by French superhero fansite Les Toiles Héroïques.

Then translation isn’t perfect, but it clearly shows us who Diana’s main adversary will be: Ares, god of War!

“Why did Zeus create the Amazons? Because shaping man in his image made his son Ares, incidentally a god of war, mad with jealousy, he convinces the guys to confront each other. To restore harmony between them, Zeus created the Amazons that Ares reduced to slavery. The Amazons revolt with the help of Zeus, who will die of the hand of his son having had time to find Themyscira, their haven of peace where they will grow Diana. (…) Diana Prince becomes Wonder Woman by helping Steve Trevor and a squad of proud arm-in-law in search of one who wants to wipe humanity off the map with deadly gas.”

In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Wonder Woman says “I’ve fought gods before,” so this doesn’t come as a total shock. But the confirmation certainly does ramp up anticipation!

The set report also revealed the role of Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) in the action with a little more intricacy.

“I play a pilot who works for the Allies and spies on the Germans without their knowledge. My character steals a notebook filled with scientific formulas in an Ottoman base. He steals a plane but is shot down in the open sea.”

Apparently, the secret formula for a deadly gas that could brutally destroy humanity. It may not be safe in any human hands, but thankfully there’s gods and Amazons in play.
