Ares' role in Wonder Woman has been rumoured for a while now, but it was recently confirmed thanks to both a magazine feature and some upcoming action figures. So far, most of us have assumed that X-Men Origins: Wolverine baddie Danny Huston would be revealed as that character, but it appears as if Warner Bros. has been playing a game of misdirection! 

Test screenings for the movie took place yesterday, and while it's not clear if this information hails from those, Batman-News reports that multiple sources have told them Harry Potter star David Thewlis will, in fact, be revealed as Ares, a character who is the main villain in Wonder Woman and a mixture of CGI and practical effects. 

We've known about the actor's involvement in the movie for some time now, but most of us probably assumed he was playing some sort of unassuming military figure or scientist. His character being revealed as Ares is likely a pretty significant twist, though there's obviously a chance Warner Bros. could show him off in the final trailer for Wonder Woman. What do you guys think?
