Wiig is one of our favorites, too.

Gadot is now the only other member of the "Wonder Woman 2" cast to be officially confirmed for the movie.

Wiig will take on the role of Cheetah, an iconic villain in the DC Comics world and one of Wonder Woman's fiercest foes.

Instead, the primary Cheetah for most comic book fans is the third, Barbara Ann Minerva, introduced in 1987's Wonder Woman (Vol. 2) No. 7 by George Perez and Len Wein.

Confirmation comes to us by way of Patty Jenkins, who took to Twitter earlier this morning to make the casting official: Wiig will now star opposite Gal Gadot's Diana Prince in 2019, with filming expected to commence in two months' time.
