The follow-up to the 2017 blockbuster has formally discovered its feline villain.
Director Patty Jenkins is off and operating with the sequel to her superheroine smash Wonder Woman, and Gal Gadot is thrilled to be squaring off in opposition to her newly appointed nemesis, Kristen Wiig.
With a tweet on March 9, Jenkins introduced the information and shared that she “cannot wait to lastly work with considered one of [her]favorites.” Gadot instantly adopted it up with a fast congratulations of her personal.

Wiig will likely be taking part in the position of Cheetah, a/ok/a Barbara Ann Minerva, an archaeologist who takes a bloodthirsty human-cheetah kind due to an alliance with an historic plant god, Urzkartaga. When she isn’t flashing fangs, Minerva is chasing down uncommon antiquities — a day job consistent with Diana Prince’s, as she’s working on the Louvre within the Department of Antiquities within the first scenes of Wonder Woman.
The sequel to the 2017 hit will reportedly be set within the midst of the Cold War within the 1980s.
