Director confirms Kristen Wiig as 'Wonder Woman' villain Cheetah

Kristen Wiig Confirmed as Cheetah for Wonder Woman 2

Kristen Wiig Confirmed as Cheetah for Wonder Woman 2

For most people, the news that Kristen Wiig would be playing the Cheetah in the second Wonder Woman movie likely elicited a combination of excitement over Wiig's involvement and confusion over just who the Cheetah is. Cheetah, the character she will be playing in Wonder Woman, is considered as one of Diana Prince's most risky enemies.

Gadot is now the only other member of the "Wonder Woman 2" cast to be officially confirmed for the movie.

Wonder Woman 2 is slated to begin production in May of 2018 in the United Kingdom. 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. Can't wait to finally work with one of my favorites.

Donald Trump to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un
Trump has said that the development is under-progress but the sanctions would remain in place until a firm agreement is reached. In a hastily arranged press statement outside the White House to make the announcement , Chung praised Trump's "leadership".

The tweet states that the rumours of Wiig's involvement are true, and that she's "incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wigg to our Wonder Woman family". And SO excited by what we have planned.

Not much more is known about the sequel beyond that, other than it is scheduled to be released in November 2019 and will likely take place during the Cold War in the 1980s, as Wonder Woman takes on the Soviet Union.

Wiig rose to fame while appearing on the NBC sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live from 2005 to 2012.

Finally, Trump sends top diplomat to Kenya
Tillerson spoke about China's investment in the continent at a lecture at George Mason University on Tuesday. But he said the Chinese approach has led to mounting debt and few if any jobs in most countries.

In 2011, Wiig co-wrote Bridesmaids with Annie Mumolo, also starring as the the underdog maid-of-honor to her childhood best friend (Maya Rudolph). Like Wonder Woman 2, very few details of the Gavin O'Connor directed sequel have been revealed.

Information on the next chapter in the Wonder Woman sage is still scarce, but we know Gal Gadot will reprise her role as the Amazonian superhero and her alter ego Diana Prince.

Gadot first played Wonder Woman in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Italy's League Leader Salvini: Centre-Right Coalition Won and Can Govern
The result exceeded expectations and thrust the party into the driving seat of a right-wing alliance forged by Silvio Berlusconi . MATTEO Renzi has resigned as head of Italy's Democratic Party following his humiliating defeat during the national elections.

Using the Cheetah as the villain of the next Wonder Woman movie opens a number of interesting doors for the movie, and for Wonder Woman as a character.
