Kristen Wiig will play the villain in the next “Wonder Woman” movie, director Patty Jenkins confirmed Friday.
So excited to confirm the most thrilling news. Yes! It’s true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family. Can't wait to finally work with one of my favorites. And SO excited by what we have planned. #Cheetah!!! @GalGadot pic.twitter.com/Gn0jICiIAH— Patty Jenkins (@PattyJenks) March 9, 2018
When the character Priscilla Rich is upstaged by Wonder Woman at a social event, her jealous rage creates an alter ego known as Cheetah. She becomes a lifelong nemesis of Wonder Woman.
There’s no word yet on how closely the film will follow the comics, but Wiig is sure to be entertaining in the role. And if you can’t quite picture Wiig as the villain, one artist on Twitter already whipped up some concept art of the actor in full Cheetah mode.
