While there was plenty of talk about how Wonder Woman was a sign that sexual equality in the world of superheroes wasn’t as impossible as some studio executives seemed to think. However, it’s not just the in the ranks of heroes where there’s been a lack of women – the supervillains have tended to be men too.
However, Wonder Woman 2 is looking at adding a female baddie, with Deadline reporting the Kristen Wiig is in talks to play Cheetah in the movie.
Gal Gadot will once more be back in the title role, with Patty Jenkins returning to direct the movie, which will be set during the Cold War in the 1980s. Nothing else is known about the plot, and while we may know Wiig is being lined up to play CHeetah, we don’t know which one, as there have been four incarnations of the villain over the years. All of the Cheetahs over the years have possessed feline characteristics, but some have had superpowers while other didn’t, so there’s plenty of scope for how the character will be used in the movie.
Wonder Woman 2 is currently set for released November 1st, 2019.
