Recently, the first information appeared on the Web about who will oppose Wonder Woman in the sequel to last year's blockbuster. At the same time it was reported that Warner Bros. asked Emma Stone to play the villainess nicknamed Cheetah, but she refused, and now Variety has managed to find out the name of the new contender for the role of the antagonist.|
The source reports that the WB management is eyeing Oscar nominee Kristen Wiig ("Bachelorette Party in Vegas"). She is best known for her comedic roles, but the drama "Gemini" proved that Wiig can not only joke on screens, but also try on more serious characters when necessary.
As we wrote a couple of days ago, in Wonder Woman 2, the heroine Gal Gadot will fight the villainous Cheetah, under the guise of which several women were hiding in the comics. According to rumors, the creators of the sequel opted for the wealthy heiress and archaeologist Barbara Ann Minerva, who went on an expedition to Africa, where she acquired superpowers. The action of the second Wonder Woman will unfold in the 1980s during the Cold War.
According to the source, Kristen Wiig has long been in the mind of director Patty Jenkins, although this choice may seem a little strange. Insiders claim that the actress has already met with the WB bosses, and negotiations with her are moving in the right direction. Wiig also plans to make an English-language remake of Tony Erdmann, and in the fall she can be seen in the comedy drama Where Have You Gone, Bernadette?
The USA premiere of Wonder Woman 2 will take place on October 31, 2019.
