Patty Jenkins Shares new Image of Pedro Pascal in Wonder Woman 1984
When we learned that former Game of Thrones guest star and Narcos headliner Pedro Pascal had joined Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984, we were enthused. Pascal is a deeply talented actor, one who managed to waltz into season four of Game of Thrones and make his Oberyn Martell an instant fan favorite. No easy feat considering GoT‘s got a massive cast, filled with talented performers playing a bevy of heavies, hard cases and lunatics. It seems that director Jenkins is enjoying Pascal’s work on her hotly anticipated Wonder Woman sequel as much as folks loved him as Martell. She recently took to Twitter to share this image of Pascal in his still unknown role:

Jenkins is doing her level best to keep us guessing about the project, having already released this image of Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor somehow alive and well in the 80s. The image of Pascal appears to be of him on TV, and we’ve already seen the featured image of Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince looking at a bank of TVs showing cultural touchstones and moments from the early 80s.
Is Pascal’s character a villain? He certainly looks smarmy in the above image, and he could be aligned somehow with Kristin Wiig’s Cheetah. There’s also been speculation that Pascal is actually playing Diana’s father Zeus, in human form. And Jenkins’ caption—”Can’t…Stop…Watching”—could be a hint itself. Perhaps Pascal’s character appears on TV and no one can look away, even if they want to.
Wonder Woman 1984 is going to remain a mystery for a while. While we know who Gadot, Pine and Wiig are playing, Pascal is one of several great actors who are in mysterious roles. He joins Natasha Rothwell, Ravi Patel, and Gabriella Wilde in undisclosed roles.
Wonder Woman 1984 was written by Jenkins, Dave Callahan and Geoff Johns, and is scheduled for release November 1, 2019. We’ve got a long way to go before we find out what Pascal’s up to. In the meantime, we’ll sift through all the hints Jenkins drops.
