A concept design from Wonder Woman 1984 reveals the original monstrous look for Kristen Wiig’s villain, Cheetah.
Now that most DC fans have had the chance to see Wonder Woman 1984 in one way or another, newly revealed concept art from the sequel highlights the original design for Kristen Wiig as Cheetah. Since the sequel featured a neat reference to the first film, it’ll be interesting to see if Cheetah returns or is at least referenced in the recently green-lit Wonder Woman 3. But bringing the animalistic villain to life in a believable way was always going to be a challenge, and the new concept design reveals the initial look for Barbara Minerva’s monstrous alter-ego.
The design from artist Maciej Kuciara on Instagram shows off the athletic-looking Cheetah makes the villain truly look like a formidable threat for Diana Prince. She still retains her humanity while still paying homage to her look in the comics – but without making Kristen Wiig look too much like an extra from Cats. Take a look at the art of Wiig’s villain in Wonder Woman 1984 below.
