In antiquity, the Amazons defeat the war god, Ares, and Zeus charges them to hold him prisoner as eternally young warriors on the hidden island of Themyscira. Centuries later, US Air Force pilot Steve Trevor is lured to crash land on the island and the distraction of that trespass allows Ares to escape. In response, Princess Diana wins the responsibility to both take Trevor home and recapture the fugitive god. Steve Trevor offers to help and together this disparate pair must not only overcome Ares' efforts to achieve a bloody revenge, but also reconcile their own conflicting world views in an adventure that would be the first for the greatest of the female superheroes.

This film is loosely based on the first storyline of the second ongoing "Wonder Woman" comic book series in 1987, "Gods and Mortals" by George Perez, Len Wein and Greg Potter. See more »
When Ares increases his power, he boasts he is as strong as Hercules. That is the Roman name of the demigod while all other mythical figures in the film are identified by the proper Greek names of Greek mythology. Though technically the proper name of Heracles would have applied, the source material of the comics has a long of intermixing the names of Roman and Greek deities in The Pantheon. See more »
You seem as eager to meet me on the battlefield as you once did in the bedroom, Hippolyta.
I only hope you prove more skilled in this arena, Ares.

the best animated feature from DC or Marvel to date
this is DC comics latest animated feature,and it is good.in my mind,it's the best animated feature from both DC and their rival Marvel.the action is outstanding,especially the fight scenes.the dialogue is good,as is the voice acting.there are some big names lending their voices here,and all suit the characters very well.i also liked the story,though how accurate it is to the comic book i don't know.i do know it's nice to have a strong central female character who can hold her own with any guy,and i don't just mean physically or intellectually.there is actually a pretty funny scene which illustrates this point,but i won't get into it here.anyway,hopefully in the next couple of years or so a live live action Wonder Woman film will hit theatres.anyway,for me,this animated Wonder Woman is a 9/10
