There had been talk about Kristen Wiig being in talks for the role of Cheetah in the Wonder Woman sequel, and just a little bit ago, director Patty Jenkins confirmed it in a tweet:

As previously discussed, the sequel to the box office and groundbreaking hit will take place in the 80’s and as of yet, we’re not sure which version of Cheetah that we will get. The most recent, depicts her as an archaeologist friend of Diana’s who becomes evil after coming into contact with an ancient deity. That is the Barbara Ann Minerva character that we’ve been told would be the basis for this movie.

Wiig, although known as a comedic actress, can certainly hold her own in serious roles, and will certainly add a flair as the main antagonist in this film. Considering that the cause of Minerva’s transformation is largely unintentional, there’s an opportunity for Jenkins to be able to paint her as a sympathetic bad guy, which has performed well in recent films (see: Killmonger in Black Panther.) The sequel is currently on pace for a November 1, 2019 release. What are your thoughts about Wiig facing off with Gadot in Wonder Woman 2? Let us know!
