GAME OF THRONES’ Pedro Pascal Joins WONDER WOMAN 2

GAME OF THRONES’ Pedro Pascal Joins WONDER WOMAN 2

If you’re near a bunch of shattering glass and thinking to yourself, “Hmm, how did this happen?”, it’s likely due to the collective screams of a million Game of Thrones and Wonder Woman fans losing their minds because fan favorite Pedro “The Viper” Pascal has joined the main cast of the Wonder Woman sequel.

It is a “key role” according to Variety—who was the first to report on the matter—one that has nary a single detail available to us common plebes. But just this information alone is enough for us: Pedro Pascal is an incredible actor (hello: Thrones and Narcos and Kingsman 2, much?), and to see him re-team with Patty Jenkins (who is returning to write and direct, and worked with Pascal in TV in the past), opposite two incredibly capable women like Gal Gadot and her sequel adversary, Cheetah, played by Kristen Wiig, is nothing short of squee-inducing. We’re already ready for all of the witty retorts, badass action, and merch. (And considering this film is slated to take place in the ’80s? Oh, are we ready for the merch.)

Of course the biggest question is: who, then, do you think Pedro Pascal will play? An easy guess would be Dr. Tom Leavens, but there are bigger options, too: a messenger of Circe? A leader of Checkmate? Total normie Snapper Carr? What about Hunter Zolomon or Zoom? The questions are as unending as the possibilities!

But what do you think of this casting decision? Let us know in the comments below.
