Kristen Wiig Confirmed For WONDER WOMAN Sequel

SNL alum Kristen Wiig (‘Bridesmaids,’ ‘The Skeleton Twins,’ ‘The Martian’) has officially been cast as DC Comics villain Cheetah, the primary antagonist in the sequel to Patty Jenkins’ superhero blockbuster ‘Wonder Woman.’

Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, also tweeted to welcome Wiig to the team.

Wonder Woman’s feline-esque adversary was first introduced in Wonder Woman No. 6 in 1943, however, the most popular version of the supervillain would have to be the Dr Barbara Ann Minerva incarnation, which was created by writer Len Wein and artist George Perez in the 1980s.

Jenkins will direct from a script she shaped with David Callaham (‘Godzilla,’ ‘Horsemen,’ ’ The Expendables’) and legendary comic scribe and co-chairman of DC Films Geoff Johns.
