Wonder Woman’s sequel is in development, shooting for a November 2019 release date, and her next foe could soon be secured.
According to Deadline, Warner Bros. and DC are in talks with Kristen Wiig to take on the role of the villain Cheetah for the Gal Gadot starring and Patty Jenkins directed sequel that will reportedly be set in the 1980’s during the Cold War. If this deal happens, sources indicating it will happen quickly, the follow-up to the massively successful film will have women in both the main hero and villain roles.
Wiig is best known for most of her comedy roles that began with Saturday Night Live followed by big screen turns in Bridesmaids, Ghostbusters, and more.
Wonder Woman 2 is set to arrive November 1, 2019.
