One of the oddest casting choices I’ve heard was the announcement that Kristen Wiig would be playing the villain Cheetah in Wonder Woman 1984. While it’s not the first time odd casting choices have hit the DCEU (Hello Batfleck, my old friend), it’s a wonder if Wiig in particular can be the vicious villain. We’ll have to wonder for a little longer though because the first look of her in character that was offered today by director Patty Jenkins on her Twitter account is Wiig as Barbara Minerva, her original form before she becomes Cheetah. Check it out below:
Wonder Woman 1984 co-stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, and Pedro Pascal. It is set to hit theaters November 1, 2019.
