While we will see comedienne Kristen Wiig suit up as Cheetah in Wonder Woman 1984, we won’t be seeing her in the upcoming Apple series of which she had originally signed on to star.
The series You think it, I’ll say it is based on Curtis Sittenfeld’s short stories and was set for a 10 episode run as Apple’s first scripted comedy. Wiig’s shooting schedule turned out to be too much of an overlap with WW84 and she has since pulled out of the show’s lead role.
Apple producers are reportedly still optimistic the series can still go forward and are enthusiastic about the project. The news leaves producers in limbo for now as they still haven’t found a production studio and now pre-production is on hold.
Rumor has it that Wiig will still remain credited as a ‘consulting producer’.
Wonder Woman 1984 is being directed by Patty Jenkins, returning to the director’s chair from the first film, and stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, and Pedro Pascal. The film is set to be released on November 1, 2019.

What To Expect From Geoff Johns’ ‘Green Lantern Corps’
After exiting his position as president and chief creative officer of DC Entertainment, Geoff Johns revealed that he will be writing the script for the upcoming Green Lantern Corps movie. The writer, who reintroduced Hal Jordan to the DC Universe and guided him forward for years, is the perfect choice to bring this franchise back to the big screen. No one has a better understanding of Hal Jordan as a character and what it takes to create an emotionally driven, explosive Green Lantern story.
The character may have already failed once at the box office, but that doesn’t mean Green Lantern doesn’t have potential to succeed on the big screen. So far, the DC Extended Universe has been very Earth-focused, and introducing the Green Lanterns is a perfect way to pivot to the stars. Full of cool characters and interesting ideas, the Green Lantern Corps may just be what the DC Extended Universe needs to kick things into gear.
