Just a week after the reports first began to circulate, the identity of Wonder Woman 2‘s villain has now been confirmed. Director Patty Jenkins has officially announced that Ghostbuster star and Saturday Night Live alum Kristen Wiig will play the role of Barbara Minerva the dangerous Cheetah for the 2019 Warner Bros. sequel.
Jenkins confirmed this news through a tweet.
Not much is known at this point about what will happen in the Jenkins directed and Gal Gadot starring sequel. Previous reports have indicated that it likely could take place in the 1980’s during the Cold War keeping the film a period piece like the first one instead of moving it into the present day alongside the other DC films in the shared universe.
Wonder Woman 2 arrives on November 1, 2019.
