Kristen Wiig may be an actress primarily known for her comedic work – Bridesmaids and her experience on SNL for instance. She does, however, have a lesser known darker side to her character repertoire – exemplified in films with more of a cult status like The Skeleton Twins.

Variety reports that Wiig is allegedly in talks to supplement that darker side of the coin by playing one of the original villains to Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman in the second Wonder Woman film: Cheetah, who debuted in 1943 in Wonder Woman # 6.

Cheetah has a very versatile base – having actually been played by a number of characters native to the comic, including Barbara Ann Minerva, Priscilla Rich, and Deborah Domaine. Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2 will reportedly be a rich globe-trotting archeologist / heiress who gains power from an ancient cheetah god after stumbling into a bizarre ritual on her travels.

Wonder Woman 2 will hit theaters November 1, 2019 – with a story reportedly focusing on Wonder Woman versus the Russians in the 1980's Cold War.
