“Wonder Woman” will hit theaters in just a few months, but Warner Bros. and DC Films still have a few tricks up their sleeves. During CinemaCon, the studios revealed some new footage from the upcoming DC Extended Universe film that namedropped Ares and showed the Lasso of Truth in action.
According to TheWrap, one scene found Diana (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) on a boat as they sail towards London. The two have a conversation, where Diana reveals that she left Themyscira in order to find Ares, the God of War. She believes he is behind World War I and that he is driving the Germans to battle. However, Steve has other topics on his mind; he explains the concept of marriage to her.

Another scene sent Diana into action when a pickpocket confronted her and Steve on the London streets. In this scene, she used her Lasso of Truth and her gauntlets to put a stop to the thief.
ScreenRant also details a third scene that revolved around General Ludendorff (Danny Huston) and Dr Maru (Elena Anaya), two of the film’s villains. Both characters are on the Germans’ side and plot to unleash toxic gas on their enemies in an effort to win the war. During the scene, Ludendorff takes a swig of a mysterious drink.
Each of these three scenes take place early on in the film, between Diana’s departure from Themyscira and her arrival in London. Since none of the trailers quite reveal the primary antagonist of the film, many of “Wonder Woman’s” finer details have been kept under wraps, and that seems to be the case with this CinemaCon footage as well.
Based on a screenplay by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns from a story by Heinberg and Zack Snyder, “Wonder Woman” follows the Amazon princess who, after discovering the body of American fighter pilot Steve Trevor washed ashore washed ashore on Themyscira, sets out to bring an early end to World War I. The the film takes place long before the events of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” where the character made her theatrical debut.
Opening June 2, “Wonder Woman” stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner, Lisa Loven Kongsli and David Thewlis.
