It has been a subject of speculations for a long time, and now it seems that Cheetah might really be the villain the Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman sequel.
That Hashtag Show has reported that Warner Bros wanted to cast Emma Stone as the iconic DC Comics villain, but, the Oscar-winning actress didn’t take up the role. As of now, it is not known as to who else might be approached by the studio to play Cheetah.
Cheetah debuted in the Wonder Woman comic books in 1943, and over the last 75 years, the character has appeared in four versions. According to That Hashtag Show, the upcoming Wonder Woman sequel will cast Barbara Ann Minerva, a British anthropologist who gets turned into a Cheetah god after stumbling into an ancient ritual accidentally.
The working title “Magic Hour” made a lot of people expect the film to cast Circe as the main villain of Wonder Woman 2.
There have been plenty of rumors surrounding Wonder Woman 2, such as the time period where it is based, and hardly any details have been officially confirmed. In January, Jenkins had stated that the idea is to make the sequel “totally different” from the first Wonder Woman film. Gal Gadot will reprise the titular role in Wonder Woman 2 which is scheduled to release on November 1, 2019.
