Jenkins tweeted out the below photo of Pascal looking like a politician or a wealthy businessman riding in the back of a car. Someone is apparently viewing him on a television screen. Jenkins’ tweet reads “Can’t…Stop… Watching…”
Pascal was rumored to be playing a God in disguise, possibly a secondary villain to Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah. Wonder Woman 1984 takes its title from the year it takes place, and Pascal’s character’s sense of style seems to fit right in. The film sees Gal Gadot reprise her role as Princess Diana. More surprising is that Chris Pine will also return as Steve Trevor despite Trevor having apparently died during the climax of the first Wonder Woman movie.
Jenkins has previously stated that she’s looking forward to being able to fully unleash Wonder Woman’s power in the sequel without having to establish her history by telling her origin story.
“The greatest thing about making this movie was the fact that you’re really building to the Wonder Woman that we all love, but not until the end of the movie,” Jenkins said. “The most exciting thing about [the sequel] is literally seeing her loose in the world now, living those classic stories. Here’s Wonder Woman, and what can she do?”
Wonder Woman 1984 is set to open in theaters on November 1, 2019.
Who do you think Pascal is playing? Let us know in the comments below. From the looks of it, we think he looks like a diabolical Maxwell Lord.
In the comics, Maxwell Lord started out as a shrewd businessman, helping finance the Justice League but was later revealed to be evil when he killed Ted Kord, the original Blue Beetle. His mind control powers allowed him to take control of Superman who almost killed Batman and Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman eventually had to kill Maxwell Lord by snapping his neck to break his hold on Superman’s mind.
Since then Maxwell Lord has returned and he’s still an evil jerk. If Pascal is portraying him, he would be a very interesting character to see face off against Diana.
