Kristen Wiig has now been confirmed as the villain in Wonder Woman 2 in a tweet by director Patty Jenkins.

"Wonder Woman 2" is expected to hit theaters in late 2019.

The first Wonder Woman movie was a massive success, generating more than $821 million at the global box office. And if you can't quite picture Wiig as the villain, one artist on Twitter already whipped up some concept art of the actor in full Cheetah mode.

We noticed some chatter about Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) possibly signing on for a major role in the sequel to Wonder Woman.

Wiig is one of our favorites, too. Certain versions of the character in the comic books boast cat-like abilities such as enormous speed and piercing claws.

Jenkins confirmed the news on Twitter telling her followers, "So excited to confirm the most thrilling news, Yes!" And SO excited by what we have planned.
