The cast of Wonder Woman 2 continues to get stronger!
According to Variety, actor Pedro Pascal has joined the cast of the Gal Gadot-led superhero flick. The publication said that Pascal will have a key role in the film, but the identity of his character is currently unknown.
Pascal made his mark as Oberyn Martell on the fourth season of Game of Thrones, then would go on to star as Javier Peña in Netflix’s Narcos. Pascal was last seen on the big screen last year in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
Director Patty Jenkins has already taken to twitter to confirm this news and to welcome Pascal aboard:
