I’ll admit I mostly think of her for comedy but that’s my narrow opinion. Would like to see if she could take on a role like this. I’d love a relative unknown so we can see new talent personally. I try VERY hard not to second-guess actor choices as long as they get the Rick and Morty Happy St Patrick’s day shirt, but seriously… Wiig? As Cheetah? I need some of whatever they’re drinking or smoking to be able to watch it. (She’s a good actress… she just isn’t a Cheetah.) Wiig is a good actor, but I doubt she has the stamina to keep up with the training regimen required of a role like this. Cheetah is a very aggressive fighter, so you need someone who can fight or learn to fight. Sophia Boutella is a much better choice. Or Jennifer Lawrence; though I doubt she wants another role where she has to sit in a makeup chair for hours. Maybe Charlize Theron would consider reuniting with Paty Jenkins on a project? More importantly which version are they going with? Will they commit to the custom/make-up? Regardless of the actor, the last thing I want is to spend most of the movie with Cheetah looking like a regular human.

As much as I would LOVE to agree with the other suggestions below, comedians make really good villains. Their acting chops, in general, are really good. Plus it would be great for her. I mean who woulda thought years ago. Scarlet Johansson as Black Widow? I’d say no, but I could not have been more wrong about Keaton as Batman. Since then, I always wait until I see it before I judge. Been a few others over the years I have been sceptical about, but held judging till I saw it. This seems like a really left-field choice I can see her as an archaeologist maybe but not Cheeta ( of course it will by body mocap soi guess it doesn’t matter ?) At first I was a bit sceptical, but Kristen does have the figure for the role, and just because she‘s known as a comic and comical roles doesn’t mean she can‘t play a villain. My best example is Michael Keaton who also Played in comical roles before doing Batman, and extending his Horizons as an actor.
