So excited to confirm the most thrilling news. Yes! It’s true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family. Can't wait to finally work with one of my favorites. And SO excited by what we have planned. #Cheetah!!! @GalGadot pic.twitter.com/Gn0jICiIAH— Patty Jenkins (@PattyJenks) March 9, 2018
According to Syfy, "Cheetah originally made her debut in 1943 in a story by Wonder Woman's co-creators, William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peter. This version of Cheetah was Priscilla Rich, an upper-class woman who suffered from a split personality that compelled her to challenge Wonder Woman and commit crimes while dressed in a catsuit. She was admittedly goofy, even for the golden age of comic books. That's probably why Priscilla, and her successor, Deborah Domaine, won't be used in the movie."
