Pedro Pascal lands critical role in Wonder Woman 2
Variety reported today that Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) has been brought on for a key role in Patty Jenkins’s Wonder Woman sequel.
Pascal will be joining Gal Gadot, who is reprising her role of Wonder Woman, and Kristen Wiig, who was selected to play the villainous Cheetah. Details on who Pascal is playing have been kept under lock and key. Plot details have also been kept secret, but we may be able to start theorizing due to the inclusion of Cheetah.
It was revealed back in September that Patty Jenkins would be returning to write, direct, and produce the sequel. Wonder Woman was a resounding success for both Jenkins and the DCCU. The film grossed roughly $821 million worldwide. It was considered one of the arguably best films of 2017 and was arguably one of the well-received DC films in recent years by critics.
Pascal received worldwide recognition after his scene-stealing role as the ill-fated Oberyn Martell in HBO’s Game of Thrones. That role led to his critical role in Netflix’s Narcos. Since then, he has made some serious strides on the big screen. He was most recently seen in Kingsmen: THe Golden Circle. Coming up for the actor, we will be able to see him in If Beale Street Could Talk.
The Wonder Woman sequel is looking at being released on November 1, 2019. This may change depending on the production and post-production schedule.
