Sneak Peek more new images from director Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman 1984", currently in post-production, targeting a June 5, 2020 wide release:
"'Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva', alias 'Cheetah', is a Brit archaeologist who was cursed and became empowered by the god 'Urzkartaga'.
"Born as the heiress of a vast fortune in Nottinghamshire, her life would change dramatically following an expedition she led into a dense African jungle.
"She was searching for the legendary lost city of the 'Urzkartagan' tribe.
"Deep within the jungle, her team was betrayed by their guides, then ambushed and captured by the Urzkartagans. Only she and 'Dr. Tom Leavens' escaped by diving into a river.
"Lost and disoriented, the two of them eventually stumbled into the lost city while it was in the midst of a ritual.
"They gasped in horror as a member of their team was to be sacrificed by the high priest, 'Chuma'.
"The ritual had been intended to restore health to an ailing woman regarded as an 'avatar' for their 'cheetah god'.
"Before the ritual could be completed, outsiders attacked the village, killing everyone except Chuma, who was saved by Minerva.
"Seeking refuge, following a grenade blast, the two are suddenly buried in the cave that was the temple to the god Urzkartaga.
"Chuma explained the botched ritual would have turned the old woman into a 'cheetah god'. The ritual, which could only be performed during the full moon and requiring a blood sacrifice, would have restored the woman's youth as well. She had been centuries old.
"Minerva demanded the ritual be done to her so she could have her chance at power and immortality. When Chuma explained there must be a sacrifice, Minerva murdered 'Dr. Leavens', who had returned just long enough to free them from the cave-in and forfeit his life.
"After Minerva killed him and drank his blood, the ritual began. Chuma worked tirelessly, but the invaders who had destroyed the temple were returning. With the ritual complete, Minerva was transformed into Cheetah and killed all the invaders. After the massacre she reverted to human form.
"Unfortunately, there was an unforseen side effect to the transformation. The sacrifice had called for a virgin and Minerva did not qualify.
"Rather than grant her youth and vitality, only on the night of a full moon, when she became Cheetah, would she be strong again...."
