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. It is true! We are incredibly fortunate to welcome the talented and the sensational Kristen Wiig in our family Wonder Woman. Jenkins herself couldn't contain her excitement when tweeted out - So excited to confirm the most thrilling news. Yes! And SO excited by what we have planned. Last year, Wonder Woman was one of the most successful films of the year.

When the character Priscilla Rich is upstaged by Wonder Woman at a social event, her jealous rage creates an alter ego known as Cheetah. Diana, on the other hand, sees Cheetah who is lost and needs to be saved.

The villain first appeared in "Wonder Woman No".

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

Wiig, who gained widespread fame for Bridesmaids and on Saturday Night Live, is officially the second cast-member to be confirmed as the film begins pre-production.
