Went to see this movie 🎥 this past month it was brilliant to watch. Gal Gadot did a good job playing The Amazing Amazon. Patty Jenkins did a good job directing the movie 🎥 I was impressed.

Myself I noticed a repeating theme in the DCEU villains in regards to a question almost all the movies ask in their own way, 'is mankind worth saving?' and the villains represent the answer 'no'.

Zod: No because humankind is less evolved than other older, more powerful cosmic races that 'deserve' to exist more. 

Luthor: No, because humankind will always be corrupted by power. 

Ares: No, because humankind will always choose to give into their lust for violence. 

Ares I think makes one of the clearer arguments in that because of him Diana realizes that although she can battle the evils of man she cannot defeat the power of choice. And as long as people are able to choose between good and evil, there will always be evil in the world. 
Diana left the battlefield no doubt because she would have felt like Sisyphus, pushing that boulder up a hill only for it to roll back down again and repeating for all eternity. Diana chose to leave the people and stay away from them because she realized, at his will, that Ares was in a way more part of the world (War) than a monster she could stop. I think Ares might be one of the more interesting vilians because he (the God of the War) was kind of right about mankind. He left the people of earth, yet the war was still a part of people. And I think it's precisely what made Diana lose hope before Superman's sacrifice reminded her that good deeds are never paid back but that they are still worth doing. 

The example of what I mean may be Professor James Moriarty's speech in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows: 

"You see ... hidden inside the unconscious is an insatiable desire for conflict. So you're not fighting me ... so much as you are the human condition. All I want to do is own the bullets and the bandages. War, On an industrial scale, is inevitable. They will do it themselves, within a few years. All i have to do ... is wait. Let's not waste anymore of each other's time ... we both know how this ends. "

I have some thoughts on the greek gods, and Gods in the DCEU. 
The God does exist in DC. So I think the Titans of the old world, were the engles in 

DC. And the Different Gods where the children of them, and the demigods - like Diana - are the ofsprings from them once again. 

So Diana is in a way a half granddaughter of fallen angles of the old world. 
They talk about this in Suicide Squad, because Enchantress and Incubus whom are over 6000 years old ( And whom are gods from maya and aztec mythology) , have actually seen this being. = The God. 

Look here : www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9IXyY… 14:35 
What do you think :)
PS: I noticed some enthusiasm at Enchantress, whom I would like to hear your opinion about, Sam: 

Enchantress and Incabus were apparently gods from another world. BUT they needed human avatars to live on earth while the Greek gods were certainly made of something more physical like flesh and blood. 
But Enchantress has one particular sign, I noticed: She has to say her name = Enchantress to change from June to Enchantress. It's in many ways like Billy when he's going to become Shazam. They both say their name to be able to change.

I do hope her next villain will be cersei 
demethon's avatar
Ha! Cersei is a character from GAME OF THRONES.  I believe you meant Circe from Greek mythology :)

And yes, I agree that she would be a wonderful villainess for the sequel.
