Rebirth incorporated a a bit of Priscilla into Barbara Ann and it, IMO, resulted in a much stronger character than the two have been individually. I'm sure Rucka's and Perez's takes were looked at as well.
    We'll have to see, but given what Jenkins managed to do with Steve Trevor and Etta Candy, I think we might get a very interesting and compelling Cheetah, no matter which pieces of the character she chooses to incorporate.

    But given that the film is set in 1984, and current Barbara Ann Minerva is an archeologist, I wouldn't be surprised if we get some callbacks to Indiana Jones. I'm more than fine with that.

    Now I know some of y'all saw that new CATS trailer. Tell me when you saw Taylor Swift in feline getup:



    You didn't immediately start wondering about Kristin Wiig's eventual look in WW84.

    Go on. Tell me. Because that was the only reaction I had.

    Given that Patty Jenkins is filming in the UK, she might have taken some pointers from Doctor Who.

    I'll admit it, I became concerned.
