Major Reveal! 'Wonder Woman 1984' Shows Kristen Wiig's Massive Cheetah Transformation
"Wonder Woman 1984" just unveiled a new action-packed trailer showing the multi-talented Kristen Wiig as the new villain.
During DC Comics' FanDome virtual event over the weekend, director Patty Jenkins -- alongside cast Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, and Pedro Pascal -- appeared for a Q&A session before releasing the new trailer.
Fans got to see a glimpse of Wonder Woman (played by the 35-year-old Israeli actress) battling the archaeologist Barbara Minerva (played by Wiig), who later becomes her archenemy Cheetah.
In the scene, Wiig's character walked down the lobby wearing thigh-high boots and an animal print dress as she stared at Gadot's Wonder Woman.
"You've always had everything while people like me have had nothing. Well, now it's my turn. Get used to it," Wiig said in the trailer.
While locked in a fight against Cheetah, Wonder Woman asked her: "Barbara, what did you do?"
In the same scene, Gadot was seen wearing a gold suit with wings.
Aside from the human-cheetah hybrid, another nemesis of the Amazon princess in the upcoming film is the businessman-turned-supervillain Maxwell Lord. The character, which was played by "Game of Thrones" actor Pedro Pascal, has the ability to manipulate the minds of others.
Surprise Appearance From Former "Wonder Woman" Lynda Carter
On the other hand, the panel was surprised by the appearance of a special guest in Lynda Carter -- who portrayed the character of "Wonder Woman" on TV from 1975 to 1979.
The 69-year-old actress said she is "beyond excited" for the movie's sequel.
"I've been a fan from day one of Patty's when she was first attached to this film," Carter shared.
Carter also revealed her daughter's reaction to the "Wonder Woman" reboot and even thanked the director and Gadot for the great execution of the film.
"When my daughter saw Gal as Wonder Woman, she said, 'Mom, I finally get it - I finally understand why everyone idolizes you. I finally get what Wonder Woman means to everyone... so thank you Gal...thank you, Patty."
Jenkins then expressed her appreciation for the support of the former Amazon princess.
Furthermore, the director went on and shared that when she first spoke with Carter, she explained that the team would not revamp "Wonder Woman" but will "take the torch and pass it forward."
