‘Wonder Woman 1984’: First look at Pedro Pascal sparks Max Lord rumors

After a tease at SDCC, fans get their first look at Pedro Pascal in Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman 1984, courtesy of writer-director Patty Jenkins.

The 1980s look reminds some fans of a Donald Trump, but sparked rumors of the character he may be playing: Max Lord.

The blonde Pascal is donning a blue suit, and power tie, which absolutely scream 80s. The photo tweeted is from an old CRT TV, so it could be part of a commercial or TV broadcast rather than a scene timed with the action.

Check out the image below, as revealed by Jenkins, along with commentary from Pascal:


Max Lord is a powerful businessman who was a thorn in the side of the Justice League in the comic books. He’s often likened to Lex Luthor, but is not usually a foil to one particular character, but does tie-in with the Wonder Woman stories of late.

Gal Gadot (Justice League) will reprise her role as Diana, 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.

Jenkins returns with new cast members Pascal (Narcos, Equalizer 2Game of Thrones), Natasha Rothwell (Insecure), Ravi Patel and Gabriella White.

Wonder Woman 1984 opens November 1, 2019.

    […] Details on the film are still scare other than the setting (1984) and that it will see Diana (Gal Gadot) facing off against Cheetah (Kristen Wiig) and dealing with the return Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). Pedro Pascal is confirmed as an antagonist, possibly as Max Lord. […]
