The director of the best DCEU movie took to Twitter this morning to confirm previous reports about the villain of the Wonder Woman sequel. So, yes, (mostly) comedic actress Kristen Wiig will be playing DC Comics’ feline archnemesis Cheetah.
DC Comics’ approach to handling its multiverse is distinct from most other comics publishers’ approaches because of the way it includes a set of iconic stories that, technically-speaking, aren’t considered canon.

We here at io9 love nothing more than sitting down with a stack of comic books and just getting lost in the fantasy and adventure of worlds nothing like our own. We’ve always covered comics that caught our eye, but at the same time, we’ve always wanted to read, share, and spread the word about more.
Batman might currently be cozied up to Catwoman, but there’s another leading lady who deserves to wear the batring.

In 2008, we were basically living in another world. The Marvel Cinematic Universe didn’t exist, we were still recovering from George Lucas’ Star Wars prequilogy, and Fantastic Four was—okay let’s be honest, in about the same place it is now. These years have seen a renaissance in comic book films, along with a surge…
