Kristen Wiig To Join Cast Of ‘Wonder Woman’

Kristen Wiig has had the kind of career most actresses would kill for. She found fame as one of the funniest Saturday Night Live cast members in the show’s history but, since leaving in 2012, she has refused to be typecast. Her acting portfolio includes the coming-of-age dramedy “Diary of a Teenage Girl”, the dark comedy “The Skeleton Twins”, and, of course, the blockbuster hit remake “Ghostbusters”.

Soon, she will be able to add one of the largest superhero franchises in Hollywood to her legacy.

“Wonder Woman” director, Patty Jenkins, announced Friday that Kristen Wiig will be joining the cast for the film’s highly anticipated sequel.

Wiig will take on the role of Cheetah, an iconic villain in the DC Comics world and one of Wonder Woman’s fiercest foes.

Gal Gadot, who will be returning as well, tweeted out her excitement Friday morning.

The sequel is slated to drop in November 2019.
