Actress-comedian Kristen Wiig has landed a role in Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman 2” and will be playing the villain in it.

“So excited to confirm the most thrilling news. Yes! It’s true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our ‘Wonder Woman’ family,” Jenkins tweeted on Friday, reports eonline.com.

“Can’t wait to finally work with one of my favourites. And so excited by what we have planned. #Cheetah,” she added.

The hashtag hints at Wiig’s speculated role as Cheetah, the sequel’s villain and Wonder Woman’s longtime comic book rival with superhuman strength and agility who hungers for human flesh.

Actress Gal Gadot also welcomed Wiig to the movie.

“I’m so excited to welcome on board Kristen! This is going to be WONDERful,” tweeted the Israeli actress, who plays the title role in the movie.
