The main threat to Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman might be the bad reviews haunting previous DCEU movies. However, there’s also a bad guy in the context of the actual film, and according to a new report out of France, the main villain is Ares, the god of war. This makes sense, as the action is set during WWI, and there’s a bit more information circulating about his malicious intentions.
The translation is a bit uneven, but according to the French site Les Toiles Héroïques, a report in the magazine Studio Ciné Live indicates that Ares may be seeking a deadly gas. Meanwhile, Steve Trevor, played by Chris Pine, has been gathering intelligence. “I play a pilot who works for the Allies and spies on the Germans without their knowledge,“ Pine told Studio Ciné Live. “My character steals a notebook filled with scientific formulas from an Ottoman base, he steals a plane but is shot down in the open sea.”
