Wonder Woman 2 casts Game Of Thrones’ Pedro Pascal

Pedro Pascal is the latest new addition to Wonder Woman 2

Following the announcement that Wonder Woman 2 had cast Kristen Wiig as the iconic villain Cheetah, another new face has joined the superhero sequel but with a lot less concrete information.

THR reports that the excellent Pedro Pascal has joined Wiig and (obviously) Gal Gadot in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman follow-up, but that all the details about his role are being kept secret. Pascal is best known for his roles as The Red Viper on Game Of Thrones, Javier Peña on Narcos and his recent appearance as Whiskey in Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle. He also worked with Jenkins on her TV movie Exposed back in 2015.

Jenkins and Warner Bros haven’t given much away when it comes to plot details for Wonder Woman 2, but we do know that “the follow-up will be set in the 1980s against the backdrop of the Cold War.”

Wonder Woman 2 is in US cinemas 1 November 2019. Get all the latest superhero news with every issue of SciFiNow.
