Following the worldwide success of Warner Bros’ Wonder Woman, a sequel is already underway, with director Patty Jenkins back at the helm. With planning already in the works, it seems that Wonder Woman 2 may have found its villain in the form of Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Wiig is in talks to play the antagonist to Gal Gadot’s hero, and it is being rumoured that the role Wiig is gearing up for is DC Comics villain, Cheetah.
In the comic world, Barbara Minerva, a.k.a. Cheetah, is a British archaeologist who is given the powers of an ancient cheetah god after things go awry on an expedition through the African jungle. Barbara then crosses paths with Wonder Woman after having become obsessed with the lasso of truth, however, it’s unclear whether the film will follow this character arc in any way.
Very little is known about Wonder Woman 2 as it stands, however the story will be set against the 1980s backdrop of the Cold War.
Wonder Woman 2 is currently scheduled for released on November 1st, 2019.
