Cheetah’s Full Reveal in Wonder Woman 1984
The second trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 had plenty for fans to love, and it gave us our first look at Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah in her fully transformed state allowing her to travel at incredible speeds and scale walls.

Though most of the trailer focuses on Barbara Ann Minerva and her journey towards transformation, we see a fully-realized Cheetah near the end of the trailer, facing off against Wonder Woman donning her golden eagle armour. In the clip, we see her fight Diana to a standstill.
Wonder Woman 1984 is currently slated for an October 2, 2020 release after multiple delays.
Batman Gotham Knights Announced
WB Montreal’s Gotham Knights has finally been revealed after literal years of teasers. Instead of playing as Batman, you’ll take control of Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, and Red Hood. It will be entirely playable solo or with two-player online co-op. A 7-minute gameplay trailer showcases the type of gameplay we can expect, and it looks similar to the previous Batman Arkham games, although WB Montreal has confirmed it takes place in a separate timeline.

Each character will have their own set of abilities such as Robin’s ability to teleport short distances in combat using the Justice League’s satellite or Batgirl’s many martial arts styles. Besides a plethora of Gotham goons, we got a glimpse at Mr. Freeze attempting to encase Gotham City in ice as well as a short fight involving Batgirl and Robin.
The end of the official trailer teased the Court of Owls’ involvement with a large circular room lined with coffin-like enclosures which are likely housing the Talons — child assassins kidnapped by the Court of Owls.
Gotham Knights is set to release in 2021 for PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
