The actress will play WW adversary Cheetah in the sequel.

The goods keep dropping from "Wonder Woman 1984," as director Patty Jenkins just released the first photo of star Kristen Wiig filming the superhero sequel.

As she did with the first images of Chris Pine and Gal Gadot in the film, Jenkins shared the photo on social media, captioning it, "Enter Barbara Minerva… #WW84." Minerva is best known as her villainous alter-ego, Cheetah.

Unfortunately, the image doesn't show Wiig in her character's feline-friendly costume, instead picturing her before her transformation inside what looks like a museum.

According a tweet from Vulture's Kyle Buchanan, he's heard rumblings that Wiig's character "starts the sequel as Diana's friend, not her foe. She emulates Wonder Woman, then seeks to usurp her." Little else is known about the direction Warner Bros. will take in the sequel.

"Fast forward to the 1980s as Wonder Woman's next big screen adventure finds her facing an all-new foe: The Cheetah," anounced a press release from WB earlier this month. "Principal photography is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures' follow up to the Super Hero's first outing, last summer's record-breaking 'Wonder Woman,' which took in $822 million at the worldwide box office. 'Wonder Woman 1984' will also be helmed by acclaimed director Patty Jenkins, and star Gal Gadot in the title role."

The release confirmed that Pine -- whose character, Steve Trevor, died in the first movie -- would return. Pedro Pascal ("Game of Thrones") is also joining the cast.

"Wonder Woman 1984" will hit theaters November 1, 2019, following the releases of "Aquaman" on December 21, 2018 and "Shazam" in April 2019.
