First official look at Kristen Wiig as Cheetah in Wonder Woman 1984

Ohhhhhhh, this looks pretty good, indeed.

We finally have our first official look at Kristen Wiig as the villainous Cheetah and she looks pretty damned awesome.

There is still some discussion online about whether or not Cheetah will be practical make-up or CGI and I must say, from looking at the new image, I believe it’s practical. I’d imagine in the movie it will be a combination of both.

The image shows Wiig’s Barbara Ann Minerva fully transformed into the villainous Cheetah for Patty Jenkins’ upcoming sequel and it certainly looks like she’ll give Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman a run for her money in the badass lady stakes.

The movie stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Kristen Wiig as Barbara Ann Minerva / Cheetah, Pedro Pascal as Maxwell Lord, Robin Wright as Antiope and Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta.

Wonder Woman 1984 will finally be released (probably) on October 2nd, 2020

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
