It looks like we know who Wonder Woman’s main villain will be

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.”

That a chemical weapon would factor into the plot lines up with both history and the latest trailer released in November. IGN has also touted a theory that Doctor Poison is also somehow involved.
