Wiig is a dark horse due to her outlandish seven-season stint on Saturday Night Live. Fans unfamiliar with her dramatic work in Mother! may not be able to take her seriously as Dr. Jones. But with Wiig playing Cheetah, Wonder Woman's nemesis whose alter ego is an archaeologist much like Jones, she may prove a worthy opponent for a doomed temple or two.
This could be her chance to step out of the comic shadow of films like MacGruber into the bright lights of the action world. If Robert Downey Jr. can do it (SNL cast member 1985-1986), why can't she?
