29 Mar – The "Wonder Woman" sequel (working title "Wonder Woman 2") is shaping up to be a superhero movie with a more diverse cast, as Chilean-born actor Pedro Pascal has been added to the lineup in a key role.

Most notable for his roles in hit TV series such as "Game of Thrones" and "Narcos", Pascal is confirmed to play an undisclosed character that is pivotal to the movie's plot, Variety reports.

Pascal will join Gal Gadot, returning to play the titular superheroine, and Kristen Wiig, who was recently revealed to be the primary villain, Cheetah.

The anticipated sequel will be Pascal and director Patty Jenkins' second time working together, their first project being a TV movie called "Exposed".

Look out, Wonder Woman, Pedro Pascal knows how to use a lasso too!
