I Love the Idea of Kristen Wiig as the Cheetah
This is some pretty old news, but I’m going to post it anyway. Kristen Wiig has been cast as the villainous Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2. I think that’s a fantastic casting choice!
I really like Kristen Wiig, even though I never watched any of her seasons of Saturday Night Live. There’s just something understated about her comedy and her acting chops, like she’s obviously funny, but there’s an undercurrent of melancholy. And I think that will go great with the Cheetah! I don’t know much about the villain, but Greg Rucka’s recent Wonder Woman comic focused heavily on the character and Wiig definitely fits! Barbara Ann Minerva was an academic first, mystical super-villain second, and I think that’s a good fit for Wiig.
