The HBO star will be joining fellow DC newcomers Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal and returning female lead Gal Gadot and Chris Pine. Details surrounding who Rothwell is set to play in the sequel to the record-breaking 2017 hit are under wraps. All that we do know about the film itself though is that it is set at the height of the Cold War and will see Wonder Woman face off against classic rival, Barbara Ann Minerva/Cheetah (Wiig).
The cast and Jenkins were present during Warner Bros.’ Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic Con 2018, where they debuted exclusive footage from the film and answered questions from fans to get people excited for Wonder Woman 1984.
Rothwell is not only an actress, but she is also a writer. Her credits have been several episodes of Saturday Night Live and was recently seen in Greg Berlanti’s romantic teen comedy Love, Simon.
