For months, fans have wondered whether or not Ares would show up in the upcoming Wonder Woman. The film, which is set against the back-drop of the First World War, seemed like a perfect opportunity to feature the God of War. However, in early January, Chris Pine accidentally revealed Ares’ role in the whole thing. Interestingly, we have not known how the character will look, nor who will play him come the film’s July release date. Thanks to a new report today, it seems that Harry Potter star David Thewlis is taking on the iconic role. Of course, this goes against what many (myself included) thought, as we all believed X-Men Origins: Wolverine‘s Danny Huston would portray the role.
Thanks to a great snap from New York Toy Fair, we finally have our first look at the badass villain from the upcoming film. While the character looks slightly different from his comic book counterpart, the essentials are there: he’s big, he’s mean, and my God, he looks scary. You can check out the awesome first look below:

So, pretty cool, huh? Of course, when dealing with toys and revealing big information, always take a grain of salt. Ares may not look exactly like the action figure, but it should give us a pretty accurate representation of how he will look come June. What do you guys think of this? Do you like the character’s new look? We should receive a better look at the character pretty soon, as this toy has now leaked worldwide.
Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.
Wonder Woman hits theatres everywhere on June 2nd.
