I applaud Patty Jenkins and WB’s marketing team for not spoiling really anything about Ares in the Wonder Woman trailers, interviews or clips.
Though I highly suspected, and it was all but given that Ares was in the film, I really didn’t know, which made the movie all the better for me.
I actually think even with Wonder Woman now out in theaters that they still have yet to show an official image of Ares from the film! That’s pretty incredible! I hope it also becomes a trend with WB and other studios in that they don’t need to show three-fourths of the movie online in order to promote it.
We have seen Ares of sorts from Wonder Woman merchandise, and now we get a cool new look through Wonder Woman concept art.
Artist Houston Sharp posted Wonder Woman concept art on ArtStation which includes a cool image of Ares with the other gods. This is actually just one piece of the giant image Houston did of Mt. Olympus and the gods:
And here is Ares vs the gods including Zeus:
“Wonder Woman” is directed by Patty Jenkins starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, and Saïd Taghmaoui .
Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
