The first look at Wonder Woman 1984‘s villain is here — and DC fans seem to be pretty happy about it.
Earlier today, WW84 director Patty Jenkins shared a new photo from the film’s set on her Twitter account, which shows Barbara Ann Minerva (Kristen Wiig) standing in front of an exhibit at the Smithsonian. You can check it out below.

Sure, the still might not show Minerva in her full Cheetah getup, but many have regarded the photo to be pretty darn effective at debuting the character’s human side. For some, the photo has even won them over on Wiig’s casting, something that somewhat polarized the nerd community when it was first announced earlier this year. Here are just a few of those tweets about Kristen Wiig‘s Wonder Woman 1984 debut.
I am all in to hear Barbara Ann Minerva being pronounced in Gal’s accent 😍🔥 https://t.co/QMqArt85bI

If I die, it’ll at least have been at the hands of Kristen Wiig and Patty Jenkins.

Okay, I’m 100% sold. Of course I’m intrigued & eager to see her Cheetah transformation, but seeing #KristenWiig embodying the role, all of my wondering is gone, now I’m just ready to see her in action’
