Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins are reuniting for this already anticipated sequel.

"Can't wait to finally work with one of my favourites".

The news only gets better though, as director Patty Jenkins has confirmed that Kristen Wiig, one of the brightest stars in comedy is coming on board as the next big bad, Cheetah, one of Wonder Woman's fiercest enemies. Recent rumors had suggested that Kristen Wiig was the frontrunner to portray Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2, and now Patty Jenkins has officially confirmed her for the role. And SO excited by what we have planned. Gal Gadot, who plays the titular heroine, wrote in her own Twitter post. Not that Wonder Woman needs flirting lessons.

They love to monologue and they love to lie, both skills Wiig perfected with her just-left-of-sociopath character Penelope, habitual hyperbolizer (a word I just made up and that you should feel free to spread around).

The sequel reportedly begins filming in May and is scheduled for release November 1 next year. It will be interesting to see her transformation for this promising villain.
