Wonder Woman Director, Patty Jenkins reveals why she thinks Wonder Woman solo film should make Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince face the God of War himself, Ares.
“In my opinion, it would’ve been a mistake to make a first Wonder Woman film without her absolute arch rival nemesis Ares, who is the most classic villain from the lore and is her counterpart of her point of view. She’s a god and he’s a god, and he knows something she doesn’t know and made a choice based on that. He saw the weakness in his father’s creation and is trying to show the world how bad mankind is and therefore annihilate them and get rid of them. She, in the course of her journey, learns the same thing and ends up saying ‘oh my god they are all of those things,’ but she makes the opposite choice. If her story is about a shift in point of view, his storyline is a participant with that story, instead of being a villain bad guy, which is the point of the movie.”
