‘Wonder Woman 1984’ adds Ravi Patel, Gabriella White as Pedro Pascal discusses role

The cast grows for the new Wonder Woman film, Wonder Woman 1984, with news that Ravi Patel and Gabriella White has joined the new film.

Deadline is reporting that Patel has joined the cast, details on his role are being kept under lock-and-key for now and Gabriella Wilde has now been confirmed for the ensemble.

Gal Gadot (Justice League) will reprise her role as the Princess of Themyscira for the fourth time in three years with Chris Pine (Star Trek Beyond) returning as Steve Trevor to face a new villain:  Academy Award-nominee Kristen Wiig (The Martian) as Cheetah.

Director Patty Jenkins also returns with new castmembers Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones), and Natasha Rothwell (Insecure). Pascal spoke about the role, getting the gig and working with Jenkins while promoting Equalizer 2, check out that clip at the bottom.

Jenkins co-wrote the script alongside David Callaham (Godzilla) and Geoff Johns (Aquaman). Production is already underway on the highly-anticipated sequel, which is expected to hit theaters on November 1, 2019.

Johns has done nothing but praise Jenkins.

“Patty, she has such a handle on the character and I think the tone of the character. To me, she is Dick Donner is to Superman is Patty Jenkins is to Wonder Woman clearly. You know I think she makes great creative choices when she’s directing a film and she knows exactly what she wants. She’s got such a clear vision of it. I think the time period Like it’s really fun to think of the first Wonder Woman film and then the time period of the second one.”

Patel is likely best known for his role in Netflix’s Master of None and for his main role on FOX’s short-lived comedy Grandfathered. His other credits include, but are not limited to, It’s Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaScrubsTransformersOutsourcedGrey’s AnatomySanta Clarita Diet, and American Housewife. In 2014, he co-directed the comedy documentary Meet the Patels with his sister Geeta Patel.

From SDCC, the footage was set in a 1980s mall: Diana leapt into action surrounded by neon colors. A young girl is snacking on some mall concessions and sees her, and she let’s out an adorable little “Oh my gosh!” She’s so busy looking at her hero, she doesn’t see the two bad guys, fully locked and loaded in on her. Diana scoops up the kid and slides her across the floor to safety, where she gently lands in the arms of a giant teddy bear and giggles.

Gadot’s Amazon offers up a isappointed, disapproving look and crushes their guns, one in each hand. She double lassos them and jumps over the mall balcony in a classic superhero exit. At the end of the footage, Wonder Woman is racing full speed down a city street.
