Check out a first look at the fully transformed Cheetah in Wonder Woman 1984, played by actress Kristen Wiig.
The leaked image looks to be promo art of some kind which shows Kristen Wiig as a villain of the movie, Cheetah, who in the comics has enhanced strength and speed, heightened senses of smell and hearing, and augmented reflexes and agility, with fangs and claws that are preternaturally sharp and strong.
In the comics, the character gets her powers in various ways, depending on the story, but in Wonder Woman 1984 Wiig’s Barbara Minerva Cheetah origin will be tweaked (no spoilers).
Redditors who have seen the Wonder Woman 1984 test screening have also said the leaked image fits with what they saw, though Barbara’s transformation into Cheetah is said to take place in a much more darker lit scene.
It’s also known that Cheetah isn’t the only villain in the movie as The Mandalorian‘s Pedro Pascal is playing Max Lord, whose comic book origin is also getting tweaked for the film.
A previously leaked image also showed Krysten Wiig as Cheetah, though not fully transformed. See below.
