Wonder Woman 1984 is one of the most highly-anticipated movies of 2020. There have been a plethora of images released showcasing Kristen Wiig’s Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva. Typically, she’s seen wearing a jacket, skirt, and some kick-ass boots. However, a new leak reveals Barbara’s transformation to the villainous Cheetah for the first time.

The trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 opens with Diana and Barbara laughing and talking over wine. The atmosphere is laid back, just two women hanging out and getting to know each other. Nothing unusual. But, images released last month signaled that whatever friendship Diana and Barbara had will come to a rather abrupt end, with the latter’s turn to full-fledged antagonist made quite clear.

None of the promotional images have revealed Barbara’s physiological transformation into Cheetah, with super strength and agile reflexes to boot. This is likely because her new look is meant to be a surprise to movie-goers, just like the reveal of Ares was in Wonder Woman.

However, a leaked image (via Reddit) offers a closer look at Cheetah’s look and design. Paired with a menacing gaze, Wiig’s hair is slicked back and her eyes are heavily lined with black eyeliner. Two dark tear lines, starting at the eyes and running down her face, complete the villain’s look. The makeup is great and the vibe is very ’80s. You can check out the low-res photo below.
