Kristen Wiig joins ‘Wonder Woman’ cast
Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins confirmed on Twitter that Kristen Wiig is playing the villain Cheetah in the upcoming sequel.
Cheetah’s origins in the DC universe (and specifically Wonder Woman) date back to 1943. Comic books geeks will remember writer Len Wein and artist George Perez version from 1987.
For those not in the loop – Cheetah is the alter-ego of British anthropologist Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva, who gains cheetah powers in an African jungle expedition gone wrong.
Rumours are suggesting Wonder Woman 2 (or whatever they decide to call it) will take place in the 1980s during the Cold War.
