A partial look at Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah in the film Wonder Woman 1984 has been revealed thanks to a sticker pack. Originally supposed to release last year, Wonder Woman 1984 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Wonder Woman film, which earned over $800 million at the box office. Set in 1984, the film will focus on Wonder Woman (the returning Gal Gadot) dealing with powerful businessman Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) and her co-worker Barbara Ann Minerva. Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor will also be back for the sequel, despite sacrificing himself in the first film.
Making her first appearance in 1943, Cheetah is regarded as one of Wonder Woman’s longest lasting rivals in her rogues gallery. Fans already know the Wonder Woman 1984 take on Cheetah will show her to be a shy woman fueled by low self-esteem, which eventually leads to her Cheetah transformation. It’s also expected Maxwell Lord will play a role, as photos have shown the two will be close and likely even in a romantic relationship.
One of Wonder Woman 1984’s biggest mysteries has been Cheetah’s appearance after she transforms. Now, DCEU Updates on Twitter has another clue, thanks to images from a sticker pack showing Wiig in her Cheetah makeup. The look is quite extreme, with a slightly yellow face, black lines, and elongated ears. While fans have been given some ideas as to what Cheetah will look like (thanks to toys, Halloween costumes, and the like), this is one of the first clear looks at her in movie-ready condition.

Even though fans has seen teases here or there of Cheetah’s look post-transformation, they have yet to see it in action. The trailers and official photos for Wonder Woman 1984 have intentionally left it out. As this point, it seems likely fans won’t see footage of Wiig’s Cheetah post-transformation until the movie comes out in October. This is smart on DC’s part, as it will make for an exciting moment when fans finally get to see the film.
Cheetah has had a wide variety of appearances over the years, so time will tell if this approach to the character will hold up as well as some of her other iconic appearances. Wiig has had plenty of experience acting, and it will be interesting seeing how an actor who has mostly been in comedic roles will play a villain known for her rage and brutality. DC movies have generally been praised for their makeup (with Suicide Squad even winning an Oscar for it), so if there are any faults with Wonder Woman 1984, it feels likely makeup and character design will not be one of them.
