It looks like Wonder Woman 2 is assembling its own cast of wonder women. Returning director Patty Jenkins announced Friday via Twitter that indie film actress and Saturday Night Live alum Kristen Wiig will join the sequel.
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

The final word of that tweet (before Jenkins tags Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot), is crucial. Cheetah is a classic Wonder Woman villain, created by Doctor Psycho.

Though known for her comedy, Wiig has been known to skew toward dark humor or muted drama in her film roles. as with Girl Most Likely, The Skeleton Twins (with fellow SNL alum Bill Hader), or Hateship, Loveship. An actress that versatile could make Cheetah extremely compelling – or at any rate, better than Ares.
Wonder Woman 2 is due in November 2019.

Gyllenhaal all but confirmed the news in a post on his shiny new Instagram account on Wednesday:
The Instagram video features Gyllenhaal reading an old issue of The Amazing Spider-Man, with a glaring cover that announces “The Return of the Man Called MYSTERIO!”
This will be Gyllenhaal’s first real comic book movie. He’s no stranger to big-budget blockbusters (The Day After Tomorrow) or geek-friendly adaptations (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), but Spider-Man 2 was the closest he ever came to participating in a big screen superhero story.
