We’ll have to treat all of this as a rumor for now of course, but Heroic Hollywood reckon they’ve uncovered some very interesting information regarding the motivations of the villains in Patty Jenkins’ solo Wonder Woman movie, which is scheduled to begin shooting in London very soon.
We’ve already heard that Ares (possibly Sean Bean) and Circe (maybe Eva Green) would serve as the main antagonists in the film (though this is still unconfirmed), but now we might just have details on what drives them, and how they come into conflict with Gal Gadot’s Princess Diana.

According to the site, Ares will use Circe to draw out Wonder Woman and keep her busy while he attempts to get his hands on an Amazonian sword which would grant him unlimited power, and allow him to take over Olympus. Ares, the God of War, feeds off of the negative energy generated by death and destruction, so his plan is to kick-start World War III.
They also mention the possibility of a cameo from Batman, who would observe Diana’s attempts to stop the bad guys. Apparently, she will still be searching for the sword in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice when the Dark Knight approaches her about what he witnessed.
Again, take all of this with that ever-ready pinch of salt for the time being – but it definitely sounds like a very cool premise for the film, don’t you think?
Wonder Woman is scheduled to be released on June 23, 2017. As always, we’ll keep you posted when we hear more.
