Patty Jenkins decided to bless our lives this fine Wednesday by giving us our first look at the main antagonist in Wonder Woman 1984. Kristen Wiig will be playing the role of Barbara Minerva aka ‘Cheetah’ in the upcoming sequel. Take a look at the director’s tweet below!
As you can see, her wardrobe is extremely on point for the 80’s Cold War setting of the film. Other than that, there isn’t much to go on other than the fact she has a penchant for animals.
There have been several different origins for the character but all of them had the same basic setup; scientist comes into contact with a Greek relic that grants her the powers of enhanced strength and speed, heightened senses of smell and hearing and enhanced reflexes and agility. The kicker is Wonder Woman knew Minerva prior to her transformation and blamed herself for the evil turn.
I am very excited to see Wiig portray and unhinged character with a penchant for blood. I think this will make for a great antagonist for Wonder Woman.
What do you think of this first look? Does it get you excited for the film? Let us know @superbromovies on Twitter!
Wonder Woman 1984 will be released on November 1, 2019.
