WONDER WOMAN: It Looks Like Ares Has Finally Been Confirmed As The Villain Of The Piece
In addition to debuting some cool new BTS images from the Wonder Woman movie last night, French publication Studio Cine Live also seems to have confirmed that Ares will be one of the villains. The mag followed up some quotes by actor Chris Pine by stating that the God of War would attempt to use some kind of gas devised from the formulas Steve Trevor stole to end all human life.
DC's incarnation of the God of War has long been rumored to be the main villain in Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman movie, but there's never been any official word on that. Now, we may just have confirmation.
Here's a translation courtesy of Les Toiles Héroïques:
“Behind these scientific formulas, there is a deadly gas that could well annihilate humanity. Now, it turns out that this is precisely the goal of Ares, the god of war. He is jealous of humanity, which is a creation of his father, the deceased Zeus (he was killed by Ares when he rebelled against him, with the help of the Amazons)…”
Both Ares and another DC baddie named Circe have been rumored to appear as the primary antagonists in the movie for quite a while, but we never really had anything solid on that until now. Of course, this still isn't official confirmation, but it's highly unlikely Studio Cine Live are just working off speculation here.
Thoughts? Wonder Woman is set for release on June 2, 2017.
