I used to want to save the world.
This beautiful place.
but I knew so little then.
It's a land of magic and wonder.
Worth cherishing in any way.
But the closer you get,
the more you see the great darkness shimmering within.
Mankind is another story altogether.
What one does when faced with truth
is more difficult than you think.
I learned this the hard way.
A long long time ago.
I'll never be the same.
-你好啊 戴安娜 -你好
- Hello, Diana. - Hello.
- She looks very good. - Very good.
How is she?
- Keep working. - I will.
Diana, I see you.
Where are you going? Slow down!
How are you today?
Let's get you back to school,
before another tutor quits.
Don't you think it's time to start my training?
Antiope thinks I'm ready.
I could begin showing her some things.
She should at least be able to defend herself.
In the event of an invasion.
Isn't that why I have the greatest warrior in our history
leading an entire army, General?
I pray they will never come to where 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.
There will be no training.
What if I promise to be careful?
It's time to sleep.
And 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 will ruled.
Beings born in his image,
公平善良 强壮 充满激♥情♥
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 man'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's killed them one by one,
until only Zeus himself remains.
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.
Who would be 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.
-不 我没有 -你有
- No, I don't. - Yes. You do.
No, I don't.
You're stronger than you believe.
You have greater powers than you know.
- But if you don't try harder... - Diana!
Are you hurt?
没有 母亲 我没事
No, Mother, I'm fine.
- I was just... - Training.
It seems I'm not the revered queen I should be.
Disobeyed, betrayed by my own sister.
不 母亲 都怪我 是我让
No, mother. It was me. I asked her...
