Amid all of the changes now taking place on the DCEU slate, Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 2 remains a constant. Wonder puns aside, Jenkins is thrilled to have her on board as well and confirmed the multiple rumors that Wiig was in talks for the role.

It looks like the cat is out of the bag, now. "It's true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family", she wrote.

One of the few big glimmers of hope however was Wonder Woman, which we've had a hard time not raving about since it first landed.

As for her moment in the national spotlight, she said: "I think it's pretty clear that with new developments come new interest". She also admitted to "capitalizing" on her fame.

For those of you who are less familiar with Cheetah, she's one of Wonder Woman's most beloved bad guys. The Hollywood Reporter reported in February that Wiig was in talks to play the character. Her origins have become increasingly tragic over the years, with several stories framing her as a friend of Diana Prince. It will be interesting to see her transformation for this promising villain.

Kristen Wiig will play a villain in the next Wonder Woman film. "This is going to be WONDERful!".

Wiig, who gained widespread fame for Bridesmaids and on Saturday Night Live, is officially the second cast-member to be confirmed as the film begins pre-production. The film has been schedule to release on December 13th, 2019.
