After years of languishing in development hell, Wonder Woman finally hit theaters last year, and thanks to a myriad of reasons, from Gal Gadot's performance as Diana of Themyscira to Patty Jenkins' direction, the movie was not only a critical and commercial success, it was also heralded as a pop culture milestone. Diana returned a few months later for Justice League, and her next DC Extended Universe appearance will be Wonder Woman 2, which hits theaters on November 1, 2019. However, with production on the sequel beginning later this year, character details are now starting to trickle in.

Last week, it was reported that Kristen Wiig is being eyed to play Wonder Woman 2's main antagonist, The Cheetah. It remains to be seen if Wiig will obtain the role, but needless to say that Cheetah will just be one of many new faces who will be introduced in the sequel, and we've provided some candidates who would also be worthy of inclusion.

Veronica Cale

Much like how Lex Luthor hates Superman for his godlike abilities and popularity in Metropolis, Veronica Cale, the head of her own large corporation, hates Wonder Woman for being so easily accepted in our patriarchal society. In the comics, Veronica originally tried to turn the public against Diana through a smear campaign, but when that didn't go as expected, she took more direct measures. As of the DC Rebirth relaunch, Veronica has been turned into a more capable foe for Wonder Woman, working behind the scenes to bring the Amazon heroine down, which is precisely how Wonder Woman 2 should use her. Keeping that in mind, Wonder Woman 2 could also take a cue from the DC Rebirth continuity by having Cale be the one who is indirectly responsible for Barbara Ann Minerva's transformation into The Cheetah.
