Kristen Wiig Will Officially Become The Wonder Woman 2 Villain Called 'Cheetah'

Wonder Woman 2: Patty Jenkins Confirms Kristen Wiig as Cheetah

In the movie, Wiig will reportedly play Barbara Ann Minerva, a British anthropologist, who turns into a cheetah god in a freakish accident.

On Friday, director Patty Jenkins announced that the Saturday Night Live alum will portray the DC Comics villain Cheetah in the upcoming followup to the 2017 smash hit!

Wonder Woman 2 opens on November 1, 2019 and is expected to go into production later this spring.

Are you looking forward to seeing how villainess Wiig can be in Wonder Woman's sequel? Ares was far more interesting in his human guise than he was in his full-powered mode at the end of the otherwise excellent Wonder Woman movie, and really, was one of the few weak spots in the otherwise excellent film.

In DC Comics, Cheetah has feline strength and speed, which make her a worthy foe to Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot).


"SO excited by what we have planned."


The Wonder Woman sequel is speculated to be taking place in the '80s where she battles against the Soviet Union during the height of The Cold War. The 80s run in the comics centered on Domaine, but that alias was later retconned as merely a false named used by Barbara Ann to commit crimes as Cheetah, so we're banking on the more modern version of Barbara Ann for this movie. This is because Wiig is usually associated with comedy films and has rarely played a villainous character. Jenkins is returning to direct the sequel, along with actress Gal Gadot in the title role.

Wonder Woman 2 will begin shooting later this year.
