What you thought I hated everything Marvel has done? Hell no. The movie Black Panther is awesome and something I wanted to talk about for a while.
Ares Wonder Woman Looking back Wonder Woman isn't that great of a movie and one of it's biggest problems is Ares.
Now Ares sounds good on paper. A villain who represents the opposite of Wonder Woman's optimistic belief in humanity and instead see's humanity as a plague and should be wiped out to make the world better. This could lead to Ares being an interesting villain who could make Wonder Woman question if humanity is truly worth saving.
But instead Ares is just generic. He has no personality outside of being Wonder Woman's opposite and just exists to be the big bad of the movie. While Superheroes best villains are usually their exact opposites in terms of what the heroes represent and their beliefs Ares is not on the same level as villains like Lex Luthor or The Joker.
Ares is just there for Wonder Woman to defeat and win and it doe
