Last week, it was revealed that Warner Bros. Pictures was in talks with Kristen Wiig to join the Wonder Woman sequel as the villain Cheetah. Most people were split on this decision, due to Wig being more in the comedic light than anything else, but others remained optimistic about Wiig joining the cast.
Well, Patty Jenkins confirmed today that she is indeed joining the Wonder Woman film as Cheetah! Director Patty Jenkins is returning behind the camera for Wonder Woman 2, and is currently co-writing the script with Dave Callaham & DC Films co-chairman Geoff Johns.
So excited to confirm the most thrilling news. Yes! It’s true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family. Can't wait to finally work with one of my favorites. And SO excited by what we have planned. #Cheetah!!! @GalGadot pic.twitter.com/Gn0jICiIAH
