In the newest clip from Wonder Woman 1984, Kristen Wiig has taken the stage. The new and latest epic from the World’s DC is only a few weeks away from unveiling some exciting facts at the DC fandom.
We can see a glimpse of Wiig transforming from archaeologist Barbara Ann Minerva into the arch-villainess Cheetah in the teaser shared from the Wonder Woman 11984 account.
At the start of the movie we see Barbara Ann as one of Diana Prince’s (Gal Gadot) friends, and later we witness her dark side is unleashed through ancient animalist power. She snarls in the clip “I don’t want to be like anyone. I want to be an apex predator.”
In the comics, we saw Cheetah been directly portrayed as an apex predator and at times we see it as part-human, part-animal. Though the majority of the information is safely guarded by the filmmakers, a recent leak has suggested that the Wonder Woman 1984 version of Cheetah will borrow more from the literal “apex predator” incarnation.
It was speculated by the DC fans that Diana and Barbara Ann might be romantically involved at the beginning of WW 1984, though director Patty Jenkins has denied the case.
The filmmakers have said that “It might have happened in a different storyline,” but because this storyline was so clearly about Steve coming back, the whole story was about Steve. They added “It’s all love story with Steve. There wasn’t room for two for Diana.”
