Patty Jenkins confirms Kristen Wiig will play Cheetah in 'Wonder Woman 2'

Kristen Wiig will be seen alongside Gal Gadot

She tweeted: " So excited to confirm the most thrilling news. Yes!

Fans can expect to see a lot of Wiig in the upcoming movie, as the plot is set to focus on the rivalry between Cheetah and Wonder Woman. Last year, Wonder Woman was one of the most successful films of the year. To keep up the anticipation, director Patty Jenkins gave the audience an exciting bit of news. Cant wait to finally work with one of my favorites.

Kristen Wiig playing the villain in Wonder Woman 2 may be a surprise, but it would be hard to find a better choice for Cheetah. "And SO excited by what we have planned", Jenkins wrote. That seems particularly interesting and could potentially suggest that the folks behind Wonder Woman 2 want to craft a Cheetah with a more human and tragic personality, rather than merely offer up a villain who can go toe-to-toe with Diana in a fight.

The casting, as shocking as it may be at first, is one of the first official details concerning Wonder Woman's sequel. We wonder, if Part 2 will also give us a glimpse into Cheetah's backstory.

"I'm SO excited welcome on board Kristen!" Her film credits include Bridesmaids, The Martian, Ghostbusters and Downsizing. Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins are reuniting for this already anticipated sequel.

Set in the 1980s, the Wonder Woman sequel is expected to open in theaters November 1, 2019.
