Pedro Pascal is one of several exciting additions to the cast of DC’s Wonder Woman 1984, but his character has been under wraps from the beginning. We saw the one picture of him in the movie, but that’s about it. While we wait on official word, a new rumor (courtesy of our friends at SuperBroMovies) may finally give us the answer.
Apparently, Pedro Pascal is playing none other than……
Maxwell Lord is a prominent villain in DC Comics, but as usual, expect some differences for the movie. For example, he won’t have his psychic powers, while this version is said to be hammier and “more liberal.” One iconic moment saw Wonder Woman snap Lord’s neck during Infinite Crisis. We don’t know if we’ll see that in the movie, but could you imagine?
SuperBroMovies also has some details on Lord’s arc in the movie, but for the sake of spoilers, we won’t go over them here. Head over to the source link below if you want to read them.
While Lord previously appeared on Smallville and Supergirl, Wonder Woman 1984 will serve as the character’s movie debut. He was set to be the villain of the Justice League Mortal movie, where he would’ve been played by Jay Baruchel. Unfortunately, that movie never happened.
Stay tuned for more news as we have it.
