Steelers GM: Ryan Shazier won’t play in 2018

  Steelers GM: Ryan Shazier won’t play in 2018 Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier will not play during the 2018 season, general manager Kevin Colbert confirmed on Wednesday. Shazier suffered a spinal injury in a Dec. 4 game against the Cincinnati Bengals and underwent spine stabilization surgery two days later. The 25-year-old was released from hospital on Feb. 1, transitioning to an outpatient therapy program. In his first public comments since suffering the injury, Shazier told teammate Roosevelt Nix on Nix’s podcast last week that he plans to walk again on his own and return to the field.

But no, Wiig isn't going to suit up and play an Amazonian warrior: according to Deadline, she's actually rumored to play Cheetah , the main villain and one of Diana Prince's top foils. So far, precious little is known about " Wonder Woman 2 ".

Wonder Woman has a new villain for its sequel. And, man, is she funny.

Director Patty Jenkins confirmed on Friday morning that Kristen Wiig is set to play the villain Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2. “So excited to confirm the most thrilling news,” she wrote on Twitter. “Yes! It’s true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family. Can’t wait to finally work with one of my favorites. And SO excited by what we have planned. #Cheetah!!!”

In DC Comics, the character of Cheetah is feline-esque with strength and speed to make her a worthy adversary against Wonder Woman.

News that the Saturday Night Live alum was in talks for the role broke last week.

The previous Wonder Woman movie, released this past summer, was one of the biggest critical and commercial hits of the DC Extended Universe film franchise, earning $821.8 million at the worldwide box office.
