She has the features and is young enough to be a brilliant and enthusiastic Archaeologist Barbara Minerva who is book smart and discovers the Cheetah costume or amulet or bracelet / whatever.
That's when either Wonder Woman discovers her or saves her from pirates or whatever. I can go on and on with this villains introduction.
To me it's a similar story of Venom and Spiderman where an unfortunate but powerful entity enters a drama between two hero's and one chooses to give into the greed and chaos for revenge.
After her role in F8 of the Furious, I could see Charlize Theron as Dr. Cyber.
Question? Who do you think Diana's supporting cast will be in the sequel. This isn't spoilers as I have not seen the movie, but since it is set during World War I, Etta and Steve obviously can't return as they are. I was actually thinking you could recast Etta as African American and make her the granddaughter/great granddaughter of Etta Candy. That seems like a pretty easy fix. Barbara Ann Minerva would also be a great supporting cast member. Maybe Sasha Bordeaux or Nessie. The only issue is Steve Trevor. D.C. seems to be trying to push the character as Diana's "Lois Lane," so would they just not cast a male love interest, or would they take the chance of casting a different male character in Steve's place?
Wonder, why Marvel didn't follow this brilliant strategy and cast someone with actual green skin for Gamorra.
Aside from that, I'm kind of stumped. They really seem to be pushing Steve and Etta again for the first time in forever across multiple mediums and titles, but them being dead for the present day leaves a big space. Maybe Ferdinand, the Kapatelis women, Myndi Mayer, etc? It's possible that Lennox, Zola and the rest could show up, but with DC distancing itself from the New 52 version, that's doubtful.
If they go this route: make important amazons more proeminent. Artemis and/or Donna and/or Cassie to go and fight with her. And for the outside world, since Steve and Etta won't be around anymore, I'd go with the scholars: Barbara Ann and the Kapatelis. Maybe a man just because Hollywood (that Julia's teenage assistant would be fine). Kinda Indiana Jones-esque, but I wouldn't complain.
Joking aside, Cheetah would be an effects heavy villain, but doing enough CGI that you can't even see the person playing the character? Going back to Gamora, you actually did see the actress's actual facial expressions.
Anyways, I don't particularly care who gets cast, but it's silly to expect them to use someone when they have to use a CGI mesh. that gives you what's basically an animated character in a live-action movie. Sure, it's been done, but it's ridiculously expensive.
So far, every actress, who's played Catwoman onscreen, has had broad smiles, could wear a catsuit like a second skin ..and had jawlines you could cut glass with. How do you knw "looking the part" will be so unimportant, in casting the Cheetah?
Wonder Boy, Prince of the Amazons, saves Paradise Island from the techno-tyranny of Roboseidon in... WONDER BOY LIVES
I'm sort of torn on Cheetah (no pun intended). I want to see her in these films. But, if she's not in the first film, then I kind of think that it might be best if they just introduce Barbara Minerva in a potential sequel and then build up her friendship/dynamic with Diana (and also teasing her "fall)." Then she becomes Cheetah in the third film.
As for the sequel, maybe Veronica Cale, or Dr. Cyber, or Circe.
And since Siegeperilous02 brought it up, and Gal herself seems open to the idea, Barbara being Diana's LI before she goes bad could be interesting.
