Pedro Pascal, best known for playing Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones and Agent Javier Peña in Netflix's Narcos, has landed a key role in the sequel to 2017's hugely successful Wonder Woman, reported Variety. As of yet, Pascal's role in the DC superhero movie is undisclosed.

Wonder Woman 2 will be directed by Patty Jenkins and will star Gal Gadot in the titular role. The sequel will be set in the Cold War, but all other plot details have been kept under wraps. The movie will also star Saturday Night Live's Kristen Wiig as the villain Cheetah. Chris Pine could also be making a potential return as a relative of his deceased character Steve Trevor.

Pedro Pascal and Patty Jenkins have worked together before on the TV movie Exposed.

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight Canada back in January, 2018, Jenkis said that the next Wonder Woman movie will be "a totally different film with a lot of the same things that we love". Jenkins also revealed, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the setting for the Wonder Woman sequel. Jenkins said, "the story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right. She's Wonder Woman. She's got to come to America. It's time."

The first Wonder Woman film was a huge box office success, earning $821.8 million worldwide.

Pedro Pascal has recently been seen in the spy comedy film Kingsman: The Golden Circle. He is also set to star in directed Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer 2.
