In the same night that Warner Bros. released a new Wonder Woman TV spot that shows us David Thewlis' who masquerading as Sir Patrick Morgan, an advocate for peace on the war council, director Patty Jenkins released another television spot that gives us our first glimpse of Ares' true and horrifying form.
The spot, which you can watch in the video above, begins with Diana's mother explaining the creation of the Amazons. "When war ravaged the Earth, the gods created us," Queen Hippolyta says. And at about the 11-second mark, you can see Ares' armored hand strike Wonder Woman's bracelets.
The spot concludes with Diana saying, "I will fight for those that cannot fight for themselves."
During WonderCon, Jenkins had this to say about her version of the God of War. "I think that it was a great delight to place him in the world in a way where he believes in exactly what a real true Ares does," she told ComicBook.com, "and what kind of havoc would an Ares wreak on this planet and how, and there are some pretty good jobs to put him in for that."
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.
Joining Gadot in the international cast are Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui. Patty Jenkins directs the film from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns, story by Zack Snyder and Allan Heinberg, based on characters from DC Entertainment. Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston.

Pictures presents, in association with RatPac-Dune Entertainment, an Atlas Entertainment/Cruel and Unusual production, Wonder Woman.
