Pedro Pascal recently commented that he wouldn’t mind joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but with DC Studios undergoing rebranding under James Gunn and Peter Safran’s management, hopeful fans are more focused on getting The Mandalorian actor a new role in DC’s extended universe.
Despite already gracing the DC Universe with his presence after playing Ed Indelicato in the 2011 film Wonder Woman and Max Lord in the 2020 film Wonder Woman 1984, fans can't get enough of the actor, leading up to a Reddit discussion about which character he could play in Gunn and Safran's new DCU.
With almost 500 comments as of this writing, fans are obviously engaged in casting the Game of Thrones actor in another DC role. Suggestions include JSA's Wildcat, Deadshot, Sinestro, Vandal Savage, Jason Blood, and The Question, among others. With some noting that he could play everyone because the “entire Justice League is just Pedro Pascal in different costumes and accents.”
With Pascal’s latest project, The Last of Us, being a breakout megahit after recording the largest percent increase over premiere in HBO’s viewing history, the actor is unlikely to leave the fans’ campaign in favor of assuming more blockbuster roles.
With Gunn’s recent statement, saying: “We have hundreds of roles to cast. As I’ve always done, some will be brand new faces, some will be actors I’ve worked with before, & some will be actors you know who I’ve never worked with. What matters most is the actor fits the role & they’re easy to work with.” Fans have become more hopeful about the faces that are about to appear on DC’s new slate.
Pascal has recently opened up and reflected on how a little act of heroism is very much needed in the current state of the world, which fans suppose is why he is so fitting for the superhero roles. “There’s so many ways to misunderstand people and to forget that, at the end of the day, your neighbor is very likely to give you the shirt off their own back.” he said.
Pascal's first taste of success came in 2014, when he appeared as Oberyn Martell in the critically acclaimed fantasy series Game of Thrones for a one-season stint. But it was only his lead role in the Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, that paved the way to stardom. His Din Djarin will be reunited with fans when the third season of Disney+ premieres in March.
