Is there a romance between Diana Prince and villain Cheetah?

The 2010s marked the powerful development of comic book movies with superheroes in regard to the quantity and quality. By the beginning of 2021, Marvel Studios will officially bring the first lesbian superhero to the widescreen in the 2020 movie, The Eternals.

Accordingly, fans of DC superheroes also hope that there will be a romantic relationship between Gal Gadot’s character and Kristen Wiig’s one in Wonder Woman 1984. It may be a hot trend with lots of potentials, but sadly, Patty Jenkins hasn’t had any intention to turn this chance into true.

When it comes to Diana Price’s love story, Patty Jenkins said everything will just revolve around her storyline with Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor. Although there haven’t been any specific details, the mysterious rebirth of this character in Wonder Woman 1984 may have a close connection with Pedro Pascal’s character, Maxwell Lord.

Director said No.

According to the female director, the romance between Diana Prince and Ann Minerva may happen in a different storyline. However, in Wonder Woman 1984, Steve Trevor’s return is obvious, leading to the ongoing development in the relationship between Diana and this character. Steve will be the only lover of Diana in the Wonder Woman 1984 movie. There will be no other guy in her heart.

Although Patty Jenkins removed all the rumors relating to the romance between Diana Prince and villain Barbara Ann Minerva, both Gal Gadot and Kristen Wiig equivocated, leading to the confusion among their fans.

When being asked whether the scene between Prince and Minerva in the trailer implied their dating or not, Wiig gave a question back. “Oh, for a lesbian thing?” And Gal Gadot added that she believed there was the sexual tension between the two characters.

Anyway, Diana Prince will only set her heart on Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman 1984, especially when he comes back in the 1980s.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Wonder Woman 1984 is scheduled to hit screens on August 14, instead of early June as initially expected.
