When Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor are confronted by the first Agent of Ares in New York City, the Agent names himself as Diemos. Diemos in Greek myth is the child of the god Ares who is the villain in this movie.
Toward the end of the movie, Artemis is reading a book of wisdom and a couple of pages are shown. These words are attributed to the Egyptian King Akhenaten, supposed to be the father of the more popular King Tutankhamun.

When Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor are confronted by the first Agent of Ares in New York City, the Agent names himself as Diemos. Diemos in Greek myth is the child of the god Ares who is the villain in this movie. It is also the name of one of the moons of Mars, the Roman equivalent of the Ares.
Andrea Romano says Oliver Platt had to record his lines in New York and couldn't be filmed in the booth because of the distance - which turned to be a good thing when his starched shirt made so much noise he ended up having to work shirtless.
Voice director Andrea Romano says they like to use a lot of name actors for these projects and joked that fans can often tell what she's watching on TV and in the movies by who she casts. She says, for example, she liked very much the film "Waitress (2007)," which played a role in her casting Keri Russell as Wonder Woman. Russell was right for the part because she can convey both strength and the vulnerability the character needs as she adjusts to living in the world of men.
