Director Patty Jenkins has confirmed circulating rumors that comedian and actress Kristen Wiig will play villain Cheetah in the upcoming Wonder Woman sequel. Directly from Jenkin’s Twitter, Wiig will join our titular hero played by Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman 2, which will be set in the 1980s Cold War.

As one of Wonder Woman’s oldest nemesis, Cheetah has been reimagined and retooled several times over, but her most recent iteration as a friend of Diana corrupted by ancient evil seems like the appropriate origin for the upcoming film. Are you looking forward to seeing the classic villain’s live-action adaptation? Leave your thoughts below.

In related news, Netflix has acquired Rob Liefeld’s Extreme Universe books for live-adaptations.
