I used to want to

save the world.

This beautiful place.

But I knew so little then.

It is a land of

magic and wonder.

Worth cherishing in every way.

But the closer you get...

...the more you see the great

darkness shimmering within.

And mankind?

Mankind is another

story altogether.

What one does when faced with the truth..

is more difficult than you think.

I learned this the hard way.

A long long time ago.

And now...

...I will never be the same.

Yeah.. Si.


Hello, Diana.

- Hello, Diana.

- Hello.



Come back!

- Looks very good.

- Very good.

How is she?

She's good.

- Keep working.

- I will.



Diana, I see you.

Where are you going?

Slow down!

Hello mother.

How are you today?

Let's get you back to school,

before another tutor quits.

But don't you think it's time

to start my training?

Antiope thinks I'm ready.

Does she?

I could begin showing

her some things.

She should at least be

able to defend herself.

From whom?

In the event of an invasion.

Isn't that why I have the greatest

warrior in our history...

...leading an entire army,


I pray there will never come

when she has to fight.

But you know,

a scorpion must sting...

- A wolf must hunt.

- She is a child.

The only child on the island.

Please let her be so.

But, mother...

There will be no training.

What if I promise to be careful?

It's time to sleep.

What if I didn't use a sword?

Fighting does not

make you a hero.

Just the shield then,

no sharp edges.

Diana, you are the most precious

thing in the world to me.

I wished for you so much, so I

sculpted you from clay myself.

...and begged Zeus

to give you life.

You've told me this story.

Which is why.. tonight

I'll tell you a new one.

The story of our people

and my days of battle.


So you will finally understand

why war is nothing to hope for.

Long ago, when time was new...

...and all of history

was still a dream...

...the gods ruled the earth.

Zeus king among them.

Zeus created beings over

which the Gods would rule.

Beings born in his image...

...fair and good,

strong and passionate.

He called his creation "Man".

And mankind was good.

But Zeus' son.. grew

envious of mankind...

...and sought to corrupt

his father's creation.

This was Ares,

the God of War.

Ares poisoned men's hearts

with jealousy and suspicion.

He turned them against

one another...

...and war ravaged the Earth.

So, the gods created

us, the Amazons...

...to influence men's

hearts with love...

...and restore

peace to the Earth.

And for a brief time,

there was peace.

But it did not last.

Your mother, The Amazon

Queen, led a revolt...

...that freed us all

from enslavement.

When Zeus led the gods

to our defence...

...Ares killed

them one by one...

...until only Zeus

himself remained.

Zeus used the last of his

power to stop Ares...

...striking such a blow, the god

of war was forced to retreat.

But Zeus knew...

...that one day Ares might

return to finish his mission.

An endless war...

...where mankind would finally

destroy themselves...

...and us with them.

So Zeus, left us a weapon.

...One powerful enough

to kill a god.

With his dying breath,

Zeus created this island...

to hide us from

the outside world...

...Somewhere Ares

could not find us.

And all has been

quiet ever since.

We give thanks to the gods

for giving us this paradise.

And the God Killer?

The God Killer?

The weapon that is strong

enough to kill a God.

Can I see it?

The Gods gave us many gifts.

One day, you'll know them all.

This great tower..

is where we keep them.

The God Killer.

It's beautiful.

Who would wield it?

I pray it will never

be called to arms.

But only the fiercest

among us even could.

And that's not you, Diana.

You see?

You are safe...

...and there is nothing you

should concern yourself with.

You keep doubting

yourself, Diana.

- No, I don't.

- Yes. You do.

No, I don't.

You arestronger than you believe.

You have greater powers than you know.

- But if you don't try harder...

- Diana!

Are you hurt?

No, Mother, I'm fine.

- I was just...

- Training.

Seems I'm not the

revered queen I should be.

Disobeyed, betrayed

by my own sister...

No, mother. It was me.

I asked her...

Take her to the palace.

Off you go.

You left me no

choice, Hippolyta.

You neglect your duty,

if she cannot fight.

You speak of a time

that may never come.

He might never return.

He could have died from his wounds.

Ares is alive.

You feel it as I do,

in your bones.

It is only a matter of

time before he returns.

The stronger she gets,

the sooner he will find her.


I love her as you do.

But this is the only way

to truly protect her.

You will train her harder

than any Amazon before her.

Five times harder...

...ten times harder.

Until she's better

than even you.

But she must never

know the truth...

about what she is...

...or how she came to be.


You are stronger

than this, Diana.


Never let your guard down.

You expect the battle to be fair.

A battle will never be fair.


Lay still..

You're bleeding.

- I'm sorry...

- Wait, Diana.

What had I done?

I'm sorry.

Where did this fog come from?


Go forward.

There he is!

- The pilot! I can see him.

- He's there!


You are a man.

Yeah. I mean...
