Brighton grad Kristen Wiig to play 'Cheetah' in Wonder Woman 2

Wonder Woman 2: Kristen Wiig confirmed as the villain

For those who don't know about Cheetah, she is known to be one of Wonder's woman's deadliest nemesis. Jenkins herself couldn't contain her excitement when tweeted out - So excited to confirm the most thrilling news. Yes!

It looks like the cat is out of the bag, now. "So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family".

Brace yourselves, Wonder Woman fans - the cast for the film's sequel just got even more wonder-ful. Yeah, you can't help but love her.

In DC Comics, the character of Cheetah is feline-esque with strength and speed to make her Wonder Woman's worthy adversary, EW reported. It will be interesting to see her transformation for this promising villain.

Director Patty Jenkins confirmed Friday Kristen Wiig's casting as the villain Cheetah in the sequel to the blockbuster Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot tweeted. "This is going to be WONDERful!" Given her work on shows like Saturday Night Live and films like the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot, there's little doubt that Wiig has developed a reputation as more of a comedic actress than an action star.

The film is expected to be released on 1 November 2019, having been moved forward a month to avoid competition from the ninth Star Wars episode.
