Wonder Woman and Cheetah’s bond in 1984
In a recent interview with a magazine, director Patty Jenkins revealed a few insights into the relationship between Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince and Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah in Wonder Woman 1984. The two are said to encounter in the Smithsonian museum and begin to bond immediately over “geology, gemology, lithology, and part-time [cryptozoology].” It is speculated that cryptozoology might help to influence Cheetah’s supernatural power. Jenkins explained their transition from friends to foes. She mentioned that what she loves about the characters’ bond is that they genuinely start out as friends. The filmmaker is hopeful that the audiences will agree with their evolution into turning enemies in a kind of organic way.

Kristen Wiig replied, “to be continued”, keeping the plot and her character under rap.
