And now, we have our first look at the villain of the movie, Cheetah, played by Ms. Wiig. The character — whose real name is Dr. Barbara Minerva — has been described in the comics as an ambitious British archaeologist who experiences severe pain and physical disability while in her human form and bloodthirsty euphoria when in her cat form.
She has until the 1st of November 2019 to change her spots.
