Kristen Wiig wanted for Wonder Woman 2 villain role
Kristen Wiig is in early talks to take the villain role in the sequel to Wonder Woman.
According to Deadline, Wiig, who will next be seen in Richard Linklater's adaptation of bestselling novel Where'd You Go, Bernadette, is the producers' choice to take the role of Cheetah in the sequel.
There are various iterations of the character of Cheetah in the series' comic books, but Wiig's take on the character looks set to be the Barbara Ann Minerva incarnation.
Minerva is a rich heiress who through an ancient ritual acquires supernatural feline powers, a decision that sets on a course to take on Diana Prince in the sequel, which looks likely to be set during the Cold War.
Star Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins are both confirmed to return for the sequel to Wonder Woman, which is due for release at the end of 2019.
