Wonder Woman opens this week, and we know of at least two supervillains who will be causing trouble for Diana in her big live-action solo debut.

And of course we have Ares, the God of War himself. Sometimes also referred to as Mars or simply War, he first appeared way back in Wonder Woman #1 (Summer 1942) and has been a major adversary for Diana ever since. There have been conflicting reports as to who is actually playing Ares in the film, so we'll have to wait and see ...

Get to know the bad guys of Wonder Woman a little better below. Wonder Woman opens June 2.
