Kristen Wiig will join the cast of the next Wonder Woman film, confirmed director Patty Jenkins Friday.



Wiig will portray the Cheetah, a villain known for her speed and reaction time, as well as sharp claws.


In January, Jenkins along with Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, told ET that the upcoming movie would be its own film, not an extension of the first.

“We’re actually making a totally different film with a lot of the same, similar like things that we love, but it’s its own movie completely, so it’s not ‘two’ to us,” Jenkins told ET. “It’s an entirely new adventure together that we couldn’t be luckier [to do].”
