The main goal of the character, however, has always been to defeat and kill Wonder Woman and rule the Themyscira.
Diana is getting the old gang back together for Wonder Woman 2, a film that will reportedly pit the Amazonian princess against the villain Cheetah. She was last seen in 2017 DC superhero mashup Justice League. Pictures was trying to court Emma Stone, who played another comic book character, Gwen Stacy, in Sony's "The Amazing Spider-Man" and its sequel, to take the part, but she turned down the offer.
The article also goes on to support earlier rumours suggesting that the film will take place in the 1980s during the Cold War, and will see her somehow reuniting with Chris Pine's Steve Trevor - along with Ewen Bremner's Charlie and Said Taghmaoiu's Sameer - to take on the Soviet Union. There's no word on yet on who else the studio might be eyeing for Cheetah. The script of the project is being developed by Patty Jenkins, Geoff Johns and Dave Callahan.
Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress who made waves a year ago for her starring role in Wonder Woman, will be a presenter at the 90th Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, March 4, according to a February 22 announcement.
Ever since the idea of a Wonder Woman movie was first floated, a lot of fans wondered if the character Cheetah would, in fact, be introduced.
With production slated to begin in the United Kingdom in late May (we were given a tentative start date of May 28th), it should come as no surprise that the studio is preparing to cast.
"I'm very excited to start working on Wonder Woman 2", Gal Gadot told EW.com.
But Diana Prince (Wonder Woman's alter ego) catapulted to superstardom, returning a total box office revenue of $412,563,408 in the U.S. and a worldwide $821,847,012 in the 23 weeks that it ran - and $103,251,471 of that was made in just its opening weekend.
Filming on Wonder Woman 2 gets underway in the United Kingdom this May, so stay tuned for further updates - including, the casting of Cheetah!
