'Wonder Woman 1984': Gal Gadot shares a pic with her favorite villain Kristen Wiig
Actress Kristen Wiig, best known for being one of the funniest cast members of 'Saturday Night Live', will portray one of Wonder Woman's greatest enemies
If you are a fan of 'Wonder Woman' – which, why wouldn’t you be? – then you, like us, have been waiting impatiently for any information you can get on the upcoming 'Wonder Woman 1984'. Scheduled for a Jun 5, 2020 release, Warner Bros. and DC's cast and crew are remaining incredibly tight-lipped about the upcoming movie, as is the protocol with most superhero films. All we know is that it is set in the backdrop of the Cold War, where Diana finds herself in conflict with the Soviet Union and amidst all this, she has to face one of her biggest adversaries, Cheetah.
This is why we got unfathomably excited when Gal Gadot decided to share a small behind-the-scenes photo of herself and her on-screen nemesis Kristen Wiig.
As fans of the franchise know, the talented comedian is portraying the role of Barbara Ann Minerva, who later becomes Cheetah.
According to the comic book universe, Minerva is a British archaeologist who, after locating the lost city of Urzkartaga, stumbles into an ancient ritual – which involves ingesting a combination of human blood and the berries and leaves of the plant god Urzkartaga – and becomes the host of their Cheetah goddess, who happens to be one of the biggest antagonists in Wonder Woman’s storyline.
In the picture shared by Gadot, however, there is no rivalry, enmity or animosity between the two. In fact, the caption reads, "My favorite villain 🖤 #WW1984"
The picture definitely has us all the more excited for 'Wonder Woman 1984', which also stars Pedro Pascal, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, and Kelvin Yu. The most surprising return is that of Chris Pine, who will be seen reprising the role of Steve Trevor, Diana’s love interest.
As we saw in the previous 'Wonder Woman' movie, the American pilot had presumably died in World War I, but as we know, no one really dies in superhero movies. That being said, the movie is set 70 years after the end of the predecessor, and while Diana is ageless, Steve definitely is not. So, forgive us for being a little confused.
Albeit, all our questions, and confusions will be answered come June 5, 2020, and we can hardly wait.
