Kristen Wiig Confirmed For Cheetah In Wonder Woman 2

There's been a lot of talk about where Patty Jenkins would be going with the follow up to the critically acclaimed Wonder Woman.

The Wonder Woman sequel is speculated to be taking place in the '80s where she battles against the Soviet Union during the height of The Cold War.

"So excited to confirm the most thrilling news".

The character, a feline-esque adversary with super strength and speed, was first introduced in Wonder Woman No. 6 in 1943. "It's true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family", Jenkins tweeted.

Jenkins said in her post that she "can't wait to finally work with one of my favourites" and is very excited by what they have planned. As of this writing, the specific plot details are unclear - though given how far away the film is (around 2 years), it makes sense.

Directly following Wonder Woman 2, Suicide Squad 2 is expected to begin production in the same United Kingdom studio around October of 2018. The next film on DC Films' release schedule is Aquaman in December of 2018, followed by Shazam! which is now in production in Toronto, starring Zachary Levi under the direction of David F. Sandberg.

"Wonder Woman 2" is due for theaters on November 1, 2019, and comes on the heels of the blockbuster success of the 2017 movie, which starred Gal Gadot as the heroic lead character.

And what's more fans old and new will no doubt be delighted to see that the director has cast a heavyweight actress in the role, none other than Kristen Wiig.
