Game Of Thrones Star To Join Wonder Woman 2 In A Big Role
Pedro Pascal is coming aboard.
Following the news that Kristin Wiig will play the main villain, Cheetah, in Wonder Woman 2, another big piece of casting news for the action movie has been announced. Pedro Pascal, who is known for Game of Thrones and Narcos, has signed on for a big part in the sequel.
There are no details yet about the character Pascal will play, but Entertainment Weekly reports that it is a "key role." The film will reportedly take place in the 1980s during the Cold War. As Variety reminds us, Pascal has worked with Wonder Woman writer-director Patty Jenkins before, on the 2015 TV movie Exposed.
Pascal played Oberyn Martell on Game of Thrones, while he played DEA agent Javier Pena on Narcos. More recently, he appeared in Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Pascal is not returning for the upcoming fourth season of Narcos, with Rogue One actor Diego Luna and Ant-Man's Michael Pena coming aboard to lead the cast for the fourth season.
Gal Gadot reprises her role as Wonder Woman. The first film ended up with a massive $821 million haul at the worldwide box office, topping every other film in the DC Extended Universe, save for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Wonder Woman 2 will arrive in theaters on November 1, 2019.
