With "Wonder Woman" grossing over $800 million worldwide, both Gadot and Jenkins, who each only had a one-movie deal, had the upper hand in negotiations for the next installment of the story of the Amazonian princess. Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins are reuniting for this already anticipated sequel.
She tweeted: " 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", Patty tweeted. "This is going to be WONDERful!" Her real name is Barbara Minerva (there have been numerous Cheetahs, but Minerva is arguably the most iconic), and she is typically portrayed as a thief who finds herself magically transformed into a human-cheetah hybrid by a mysterious artifact. We have to admit, this is turning out to be even better than before.
Amid all of the changes now taking place on the DCEU slate, Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 2 remains a constant.
Wonder Woman creator William Moulton Marston introduced the villain in "Wonder Woman No. 6" in 1943.
See what she did there? We wonder, if Part 2 will also give us a glimpse into Cheetah's backstory.
Set in the 1980s, the Wonder Woman sequel is expected to open in theaters November 1, 2019.
