You may be right, but I remember the bit with Ares where he talks about "a treaty that could never be kept" and I wonder if maybe WWI was resolved differently in the DCEU. Maybe rather than the punishing Versailles Treaty, the victors took a different approach. Germany doesn't go through a crushing depression that ends up being the perfect environment for Hitler to come into power, so there's no World War II. Also, don't overlook the effect that having a super-powered being like Wonder Woman would have on the world at large. Maybe nobody dares start anything because she would shut that shit down so fast.

I suppose I think too much about this, but I am an obsessive geek; it's part of the job description.
