The cast of Wonder Woman 2 is starting to fill up, with Kristen Wiig signing on as the villainous Cheetah (easily one of DC’s two most famous cat-themed baddies), and now Variety says that Pedro Pascal has also joined up for a “key role.” Pascal is best known for his roles in Narcos and Game Of Thrones, playing doomed badass Oberyn Martell in the latter. We don’t know if his head will get popped like a very gross tomato in Wonder Woman 2, but hopefully he’ll at least remember to make sure his enemy is fully dead before he really starts savoring his revenge.
As a matter of fact, we don’t know anything about Pascal’s Wonder Woman 2 character beyond the “key role” stuff, but maybe he’ll play into the “great romance” that director Patty Jenkins has teased. Unless the great romance is between Diana and Cheetah? We’ll have to wait until next year to find out, either way.
