David Thewlis has been confirmed for the role of Ares in the upcoming "Wonder Woman" movie reports Batman News.
The British actor, perhaps best known for playing Dr Lupin in the "Harry Potter" film series, was confirmed for a role in the project last November, however until now there has been no news on which character he would be playing.
After French magazine Studio Ciné Live reported last month that Ares would be the main villain in the movie, it has now been confirmed that Thewlis will be playing the baddie thanks to a mix of CGI and practical effects.
Batman News also speculated that Ares has not yet been seen in any promotional material due to the CGI effects, however the site is expecting a sneak peek of Thewlis in the role in the next trailer.
The film will also star Gal Gadot reprising her role as Wonder Woman and will hit theaters on June 2.
