Ever since word came out that Kristen Wiig would be playing Barbara Ann Minerva in Wonder Woman 1984, DC fans have been looking forward to seeing the actress final costume as the DC Extended Universe’s live-action Cheetah.

Unfortunately, while the popular DC villain’s aesthetic has been teased in a few of the Wonder Woman sequel’s promotional material, the costume has yet to be seen in photos taken from the film’s set – a testament to the careful secrecy that the film’s been placed under.

Speaking in an interview with InStyle, Wiig decided to open up about the meticulous hand of secrecy being placed on Cheetah’s costume, saying that she wasn’t allowed to take pictures of herself in her costume on set.

"No, we weren’t allowed to take any pictures," Wiig explained. "This was lockdown. They have it somewhere, and you will see it. But there are different evolutions to my character. I will leave you with that."

 

 

It’s interesting to hear that there’s going to be “different evolutions” of Cheetah throughout the film. Does this mean that we’ll be getting a time jump at some point? Or will Cheetah manifest in different ways in the Wonder Woman sequel?

Whatever it is, it seems like it’s all been considered deeply classified, and we’re only probably going to see Cheetah and her “evolutions” full-on once Wonder Woman 1984 finally makes its way to the big screen. The film is set to premiere early in October, however, the COVID-19 pandemic may push back the film further. Let’s cross our fingers in the hopes that the film will release as planned.

Wonder Woman 1984 is set to debut on October 2, 2020.
