We want to hear it.

French magazine Studio Ciné Live (translated by Les Toiles Héroïques) reveals that Ares, God of War will be Gal Gadot and co’s main threat.

Chris Pine’s character, Steve Trevor will apparently steal a notebook containing a secret formula for a potentially world-exterminating gas, which catches the interest of Ares.

Ares isn’t the only Wonder Woman villain along for the ride however – we’re fairly sure that Elena Anaya’s masked antagonist is the comics’ Doctor Poison.

Wonder Woman will be released on June 2 worldwide.
