Wiig is famous for a wide variety of movies from Bridesmaids to the female adaption of Ghostbusters. Although this role is going to be one of the tougher roles with hard to impress fans, Wiig seems to be the perfect fit. Gal Gadot will be returning as the Powerful female Hero Wonder Woman and fans couldn’t be more thrilled. As of now, no other cast announcements have been made but there shall be more to come soon as filming starts.
Although Wonder Woman is the star of the film, Cheetah has a connection to comic fans that may steal the spot light right from under Gadot’s nose. Cheetah’s abilities include superhuman speed, amazing reaction time, strength, and durability. She can see in the dark and has an enhanced sense of smell. Also, let us not forget those fangs and claws. It will be interesting to see this adapted on the big screen and will be no surprise if Wiig rocks the role. We may have a new villain that everyone will fall in love with.
