Every hero needs a villain; Batman has the Joker, Superman has Lex Luthor, and Wonder Woman has… Ares? At least, that’s the latest rumour out of the tights and capes grapevine.

One big flaw with Wonder Woman is the huge lack of iconic villains. Think about it, almost every popular superhero has an iconic villain, a dark opposite and a memorable sparring partner.

Off the top of my head, I can think of two Wonder Woman villains: Cheetah and Ares. It’s a good thing I know these two villains since it’s rumoured that Harry Potter star David Thewlis maybe be playing one of them.

Ares, as some history buffs might know, is the Greek God War. Like Marvel’s Thor, Ares literally is a god. So if the rumour is true, I assume DC have some Dragon Ball Z style fight scenes planned which may be very similar to Man of Steel.

Of course, it’s all rumours right now, so while that’s all in the air, you can check out Gal Gadot striking a pose for Empire Magazine as seen below:
