Kristen Wiig just joined the cast of Wonder Woman 2.
Cheetah first appeared in Wonder Woman #6 comic in 1943. The villian, created by William Moulton Marston, has the abilities of the sub-Saharan African animal which were given to her by the plant God Urzkartaga.
After the success of the original Wonder Woman film last year which took in $821 million dollars at the box office, the film is confirmed to return. Director Patty Jenkins is once again behind the lens and is co-writing the script with the assistance of Dave Callahan (The Expendable, Godzilla) and DC Films co-chair Geoff Johns.
The rest of the behind the scenes staff is up the air after producers Zack and Deborah Snyder left DC Films in the middle of production on Justice League.
Wiig is a familiar face from roles in Bridesmaid, which she wrote, as well a comedian on Saturday Night Life and in the women remake of Ghostbusters.
