Kristen Wiig Officially Cast as Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2

Though rumors started swirling last week about Kristen Wigg portraying the villain in Wonder Woman 2, the film’s director has made it official this morning via her official Twitter account:



While it’s a pretty simple announcement, it’s a nice confirmation that the villain who’s had such an impact on the character in the comics will be popping up in the sequel. While the casting of Wiig (who is best known for her comedic roles) may seem a bit odd for a villain, I’m excited to see her take on the role. Wonder Woman was a great movie and I can’t wait to see what Patty Jenkins does for the next go round.  What do you think of the casting? 

Wonder Woman 2 is expected to begin filming in a couple months and will hit theaters on November 1, 2019
