Kristen Wiig is digging her claws into her next role.

The Downsizing star is reportedly in talks to play the villain in Wonder Woman 2DC Comics character Cheetah.

The role marks a stark departure from Wiig’s usual repertoire (read: BridesmaidsSaturday Night Live, etc.) and we’re all about it. The DC Wonder Woman comic series has introduced an array of Cheetah characters throughout the years, but the highly anticipated film is expected to depict the Dr. Barbara Ann Minnerva incarnation of Cheetah from the 1987 series. Minerva is a British anthropologist and heiress who gains cheetah-like powers after a jungle expedition. 

Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins will return for the Wonder Woman sequel, which takes place in the Cold War-era ’80s and is set to hit theaters on November 1, 2019.

If you need us, we’ll be working on getting those Diana Prince arms.
