Wonder Woman 2 is expected to start filming later this year and the cast is coming together nicely. The most recent addition appears to be Kristen Wiig who will play long-time Wonder Woman villain Cheetah.
The most recent reports indicate Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins handpicked Wiig after Emma Stone passed on the role. The decision has definitely left fans divided, but the choice to cast Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman received similar initial reactions.
Now, some fan renderings of what Kristen Wiig could look like as Cheetah have surfaced. Famed graphic artist Bosslogic who is known for showing us what actors and actresses could look like as our favorite heroes and villains has put together a rather striking image of Wiig as Cheetah.
Take a look:
Many fans were clamoring for Charlize Theron to take on the role so Bosslogic made a mock-up of her becoming the infamous Wonder Woman villain.
Wiig is known for her comedy roles such as Bridesmaids and her time on Saturday Night Live. Her most controversial role came in the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot which saw all of the Ghostbusters become women. The film bombed at the box office only bringing in $229 million worldwide and $128 million in the United States. Box Office Mojo projected the film had a production budget of $144 million that does not include marketing and promotion.
What do you think? Can you see Kristen Wiig as Cheetah now that Bosslogic has applied his magic to convert her into Cheetah? Or do you think this is a terrible casting choice and they should have gone with another actress like Charlize Theron instead?
