Then a film exploring this split in Olympus can be seen in a Wonder Woman vs Aquaman film.
Now I would actually be fully okay with this idea. Except for Ares creating the Amazons and Themyscira. I think it should either be Athena or Zeus. Preferably, Athena. But other than that, I actually really like it.
Edit: Actually, I think Hera would be an even better fit than Athena for creating the Amazons and Themyscira.
