An unconventional choice to face off against Gal Gadot, sure, but the actress has come a long way since her Target Lady days. She’s given emotional performances in dramedies like The Skeleton Twins and Welcome To Me, not to mention had a small (but terrifying) role in mother!.

It sounds like Jenkins has full faith in the casting choice. Confirming speculation that Wiig is to play the character, she shared on Twitter:

AH-Mazing!

Not much else is know about Wonder Woman 2 other than that it will be set during the Cold War 1980s.

Are you a fan of this casting choice?
