Elena Anaya is NOT the main villain in ‘Wonder Woman’

Following up Suicide Squad will be Wonder Woman in the DC Cinematic Universe and fans still don’t know who the villain will be. One thing has been made clear, Elena Anaya’s character is no friend of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, but is not the featured antagonist.

Speaking with the Spanish website SensaCine, Anaya confirmed she plays a villain, just not the main one. Here’s her remarks via Batman News:

“Well, it was a small role in this big ensemble, but it is an important character in the story. It’s directed by Patty Jenkins, then there’s Gal Gadot as our main lead, Chris Pine as her co-lead and I’m going to be… a big nightmare for the two of them”.

“It sounds like Anaya won’t be playing the main villain, but she’ll definitely be a problem for Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor,” the site noted.

The image is from the trailer and the creepy masked Anaya is sure an intriguing charater.


Directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster), Gadot follows her appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with a prequel set during World War I. Pine’s Steve Trevor will be her love interest as they star alongside Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta), Robin Wright (General Antiope), David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Ewen Bremner, Lucy Davis (Etta Candy) and Saïd Taghmaoui.

The script is by Geoff Johns and Allan Heinberg.

Wonder Woman will arrive in theaters nationwide on June 2nd, 2017.

Here’s the official synopsis for Wonder Woman:

“Wonder Woman” hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
