After a long, empty summer, the DC universe is coming back to the big screen with Wonder Woman 1984 on October 2. Ahead of its release, superhero fans were treated to a brand new trailer for the Wonder Woman sequel early in the day at DC’s virtual FanDome event. The new trailer reveals a lot, but the most exciting news is our first look at Kirsten Wigg’s supervillain: Cheetah.
Barbara Ann Minerva (aka, Cheetah) appears to be a nerdy scientist and friend to Diana in Wonder Woman 1984, but he also wants to be an “apex predator.” It’s unclear how this happens, but it may have something to do with Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal), who appears in the trailer promising to make everyone’s dreams come true — we’ve also previously seen him holding some sort of mysterious crystal.
This could explain both how Chris Pine returns (if that’s Wonder Woman’s wish) and Barbara’s transformation, which we finally see at the end of the trailer.
