    Wonderwoman Kristen Wiig is Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2

    As my friend Rob said, time to reassemble the angry "Michael Keaton can't be Batman!" mob.

    Thoughts?

    I am a bit confused as to what Jenkins is going for with Wiig, so I really don't know what to think.

    She's capable of playing it sans laughs, in fact, if you watch Bridesmaids, she's actually the straight man. However, her dramatic characters often have kind of a "Sad Sack" quality about them.

    When I first saw Gadot as WW I remember thinking she was wooden and unconvincing but under Jenkins, that all changed, so I'll give this the benefit of the doubt.

    ^Good points. Maybe they are going with Cheetah as completely unhinged (which she usually is in the comics), and feel a strong comedic actor can pull that off?

    Definitely outside the box casting no matter how you look at it.

    I'm not really against this. I like Wiig as an actress, I think she has range beyond the comedy bits, and really hasn't done much to show it yet. As you say, she usually gets the poor me girl roles.
    Since 99% of the Cheetah will be cgi anyway, she's going to concentrate on being Minerva.

    Hopefully Jenkins can coax the kind of performance out of Wiig required to nail both parts. I was REALLY hoping for Sarah Paulson, but c’est la vie.
    Oh then, what's this? Big flashy lighty thing, that's what brought me here! Big flashy lighty things have got me written all over them. Not actually. But give me time. And a crayon.

    I get her and Wiig mixed up all the time.

    I’m a Kristen Wiig fan. I think she’s a great comedic actress. Bridesmaids was a really funny movie.

    She has the acting chops to be serious as well.

    I like the casting...Wiig will be the Yin to Gadot’s Yang...

    She also was the straight man in the all female Ghostbusters...
