Will Cheetah and Circe be the villains in Wonder Woman 2?
Even though neither DC nor Warner Bros. has made an official announcement, it is strongly suspected that the film that Gal Gadot starred in earlier this month ‘Wonder Woman’ will have a sequel. In fact, if the recent rumours are correct, ‘Wonder Woman 2’ may feature two female villains to challenge Diana/Wonder Woman’s Amazonian might and power: Cheetah and Circe.
This has been decided because ‘Wonder Woman’ has already received $600 and has been ranked #1 movie in some countries around the world. Since its box office success is undeniable, it is said that it is only a matter of time until DC and Warner Bros. announce the sequel. However, even before ‘Wonder Woman 2’ was officially announced, rumours claim that the sequel is already a done deal, and it may feature Cheetah and/or Circe as the main rivals for the DC heroine.
There is no denying that among the very many villains featured in ‘Wonder Woman’ myths in the comic books and animated series, Cheetah is one of the most familiar among the fans. While the villain is known for many reasons among her alter egos, the most recently featured in the comic books is Barbara Ann Minerva, an archaeologist who became an evil half-woman half-ferocious feline after she was cursed by an ancient totem pole.
Circe, on the other hand, is another familiar villain inspired by Greek mythology. She possesses the power of magic, which can be used to upgrade Wonder Woman’s foes. As Circe has a grudge towards the Amazons, it is said that it will not be surprising if she partners with Cheetah to take down Diana in ‘Wonder Woman 2’.
Meanwhile, original Wonder Woman actress, Lynda Carter, has also said in a recent interview that she would be willing to play a part in ‘Wonder Woman 2’ in the event that she is offered a decent role. According to TV’s experts, Lynda was originally supposed to be a part of the movie for an unrevealed role but her singing engagement tours got in the way.
Patty Jenkins has confirmed that she is writing the script for the film and that Gal Gadot will replay her role as Wonder Woman. The villains for the film remain unknown but multiple fans suspect that both Cheetah and Circe will feature in the movie. But, unfortunately, fans can only hope that this will become reality.
