Pedro Pascal’s role in Wonder Woman 1984 confirmed…

October 29th, 2019 by Marc Comments

There’s been a lot of speculation about who the main villain of Wonder Woman 1984 would be and now, thanks to director Patty Jenkins, we have a definitive answer.

Now, we know that Kristen Wiig will be in the movie as Cheetah, a big villain for sure, but there has been rumours that Game of Thrones and The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal was playing Maxwell Lord in the movie… and now it seems he is.

Jenkins took to Twitter (below) and posted an image of Lord from the comics and tagged Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, and also Pascal.

So it’s a safe bet he;s playing the villain in the movie,

In the comic Lord was introduced as a good guy who eventually turned out to be a villain, and it’s expected in the movie he will be manipulating Wonder Woman’s reality – and may be responsible for Chris Pine’s return as the dead Steve Trevor.

It’s worth noting too that in the comics Wonder Woman famously snaps Lord’s neck, killing him… will we get that iconic moment here? Unlikely after the ‘Superman snapped Zod’s neck!’ cries after Man Of Steel.

Wonder Woman 1984 opens on June 5th, 2020.

Well hello… Max. #WW1984

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
