With director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Gadot gearing up to begin production on Wonder Woman 2 this spring, it was only a matter of time before we started getting some casting rumours for the DC sequel.
Well, sure enough, we’ve now got a report from That Hashtag Show, which claims that the follow-up to last year’s solo blockbuster will find Diana going up against one of her fiercest foes in Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva, a.k.a. Cheetah.
If the report is to be believed, Warner Bros. and Jenkins are seeking an A-list actress for the role, and had made an offer to The Amazing Spider-Man and La La Land star Emma Stone, although the Oscar winner passed on the opportunity.
The news has yet to be confirmed by anyone officially associated with the production, but a new report states that Cheetah will indeed be the villain in Wonder Woman 2 and that Warner Bros. is looking to cast the role currently.
