I don't know much about the Wonder Woman franchise so please bear with me. Also to clarify I'm specifically interested in the universe depicted in the 2017 Wonder Woman film staring Gal Gadot. Based on limited research it appears as if Zeus is alive and causing mischief in the comics.
In the movie a young Diana was told the story, by her mother, of how Zeus surrounded Themyscira with clouds to hide it from the outside world just before he died. The story also said that Ares was gravely injured during the fight with Zeus, and might have died.
We know that Ares didn't actually die as a result of that encounter because Diana ends up fighting him at the end of the movie.
Just before Diana makes her leap across the ravine she makes eye contact with a bull (that seemed to appear from nowhere). Furthermore, I don't recall seeing cattle previously in the movie, but I confess I wasn't really looking for them. I know in Greek mythology Zeus is associated with the bull which made me question whether he really is dead. Based on the Wikipedia page on DC's Zeus it seems like he is a significant force in the comics. While it is expected for there to be some divergence between comic and movie mythic arcs I would expect major forces/plots to be preserved.
We also know that Diana's mother deliberately with holds information from her "to protect her." This was a point of contention between her mother and several Amazonians. The other Amazonians are seen multiple times wanting to tell Diana more, but her mother won't let them. I believe this means that we can't trust Diana's mother 100%, since she as been willing to omit and/or shade facts.
My question is should I interpret that scene to mean that Zeus is alive and present at that moment, that Diana just saw a vision of Zeus, or was it just a random bull? The eye contact feels like too much of an unfired Chekhov's gun to be meaningless, but since it didn't fire maybe it is meaningless?
