Comedian Kristen Wiig (“Bridesmaids,” “Ghostbusters”) has reportedly emerged as the top choice to play the villain role of Cheetah in the “Wonder Woman” sequel at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Wiig was reportedly always high on Jenkins’ list for the role and Jenkins let Wiig know about her interest before she left to location scout. A recent meeting between Wiig and top studio execs reportedly began to move things in the right direction
Warner Bros. had no comment on the potential casting and it is currently unknown if Wiig is completely on board for the role. Wiig has only occasionally dabbled in dramatic roles such as “The Martian” and “Where’d You Go, Bernadette?”. This would be her first comic book adaptation.
Gal Gadot returns for the new film which begins filming this Summer ahead of a November 2019 release.
