Recently Patty Jenkins tweeted an image of Maxwell Lord, tagging Pascal and includes the text “Well hello…Max #WW1984”.

Similar to Kilgrave in Jessica Jones, Lord can control the people around him. However, although Kilgrave had to voice his commands to his victims, Lord need only do so telepathically. This causes a great strain on his body and commonly results in physical ailments like nose bleeds.

Pascal is best known for his work on Game of Thrones as Oberyn Martell but is now also working on another big project, The Mandalorian. An upcoming Star Wars live-action series exclusively on Disney+, Pascal will be playing a gunslinging Mandalorian out on the far corners of the galaxy.

Joining Pascal on Wonder Woman 1984, will be Kristen Wiig who is playing Cheetah, long-time rival (some may call her the archnemesis) of Wonder Woman.
