DC fans still have to wait a bit longer to finally see Wonder Woman 1984, and while we should get a bigger glimpse of the sequel at Fandome, Warner Bros. has released a little snippet of new footage featuring the film's villain. That would be Kristen Wiig's Cheetah, and while we don't actually see her in full Cheetah gear just yet, we do see her start sprinting after making her big debut at a party. Wiig is also narrating the clip and describes herself as an apex predator. She says "I don't want to be anyone. I want to be an apex predator." The video featured the caption "I want to be an apex predator. #WW84", and you can watch the full thing below.
Cheetah will be teaming up with Maxwell Lord in the upcoming film, and recently director Patty Jenkins explained what motivates Cheetah to throw in with the master manipulator.
"What makes Barbara turn into Cheetah is feeling like she's never been as good as someone like Diana," Jenkins said. "She reminds me of certain people I've known who have such low self-confidence, that they're always holding themselves back. Then once they start to embrace change, out comes this ugly resentment built up over all those years."
