Game of Thrones and Narcos’ Pedro Pascal has been cast in the upcoming Wonder Woman sequel
Game of Thrones and Narcos actor Pedro Pascal has been cast in an important role in the upcoming film Wonder Woman 2, according to Variety. The news comes not long after fans learned that Kristen Wiig is set to play Cheetah in the film. There is no information yet on the role Pedro Pascal would play in the film. Pascal actually appeared in the 2011 Wonder Woman TV series pilot in the role of Ed Indelicato.
Director Patty Jenkins is returning behind the camera for Wonder Woman 2, and is currently co-writing the script with Dave Callaham (The Expendables, Godzilla) and DC Films co-chairman Geoff Johns. The producing credits on the film are still in flux after Zack and Deborah Snyder left DC Films during production on Justice League, and Warner Bros.’ deal with financier RatPac Entertainment is ending soon after the fallout from the Brett Ratner scandal.
Gal Gadot played the title role in last summer’s Wonder Woman, which also starred Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Saïd Taghmaoui and Eugene Brave Rock. The film was produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder and Richard Suckle, with Stephen Jones, Geoff Johns, Jon Berg, Wesley Coller and Rebecca Steel Roven serving as executive producers. The film took in $821 million at the global box office and was a critical and audience success.
Pedro Pascal is known for playing Oberyn Martell in the HBO series Game of Thrones. He’s also been seen in the Netflix series Narcos and the recent film Kingsman: The Golden Circle. He worked with Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins in the TV movie Exposed.
