New WONDER WOMAN 1984 Details Involving Cheetah, a Lynda Carter Easter Egg, and Steve Trevor Rocks a Fanny Pack
We've got a few little new details to share with you regarding Wonder Woman 1984! We saw a couple official photos recently of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). Now we've learned some new details regarding Kristen Wiig's character Cheetah and a couple of other fun things that were spotted in a set photo.
First, here's the new information that was revealed involving Cheetah. This news comes from Vulture entertainment reporter Kyle Buchanan.
Since today is a good day for WONDER WOMAN scoops, I've heard that Kristen Wiig starts the sequel as Diana's friend, not her foe. She emulates Wonder Woman, then seeks to usurp her— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) June 13, 2018
That seems like the version of the character in the Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp's Wonder Woman: Rebirth storyline. In that story, Barbara Minerva is an archeologist who was considered Diana Prince's best friend. She ends up being cursed by the god Urzkartaga, which is what results in her transformation into Cheetah. She blames Diana for this and ends up being her enemy.
This is just speculation on the information given, but it seems like a good bet that the film's story could go in that direction.
Then below you'll find a set photo below of Diana Prince and Steve Trevor. In that photo you can see Gal Gadot wearing a similar outfit as Lynda Carter from the original 80s series. The other funny thing that I noticed is that Steve Trevor is rocking a fanny pack! Classic 80s!
