Gone are the goatee and helmet, but Game of Thrones and The Mandalorian heartthrob Pedro Pascal is indeed in the new trailer for next year’s Wonder Woman 1984. His Maxwell Lord is a capitalist known for mythmaking. “Think about finally having everything you’ve always wanted,” he says in the trailer, in a television broadcast over ’80s scenes with boxy cars and shopping malls.
In the short trailer, Pascal captures the comic books’ Lord, a smarmy-smooth negotiator who acts as a thorn in the side of both Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and her allies in the Justice League. As several commenters have pointed out on Twitter, the makeup team definitely succeeded in making Pascal “unhot.” In some ways, Lord is a lot like Lex Luthor, but showier, using the media to craft a benevolent narrative around himself, before deploying that to damn his heroic enemies like Wonder Woman and ruin their reputations. He’s also known for killing people and controlling minds, before later becoming one of Wonder Woman’s most haunting nemeses.

We were blessed with the first official Wonder Woman 1984 trailer this weekend, and it instantly reminded us of how much we loved Patty Jenkins‘ sincere and aspirational vision of the Princess of Themyscira. Gal Gadot returns as Wonder Woman, now a longtime citizen of Earth who has been living amongst and saving humans for nearly 70 years. But the colorful ’80s don’t quite inspire the same excitement in her, and Diana finds herself pining for her first and last love: Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). But to her surprise, Steve suddenly comes back to life, and Diana must make sense of his return while dealing with two new villains, the ambitious businessman Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) and the powerful Cheetah (Kristen Wiig).
Let’s dive into our Wonder Woman 1984 trailer breakdown.

In the wake of the box office disaster that was Justice League, the future of movies from DC Comics has been unclear. Despite the success of Wonder Woman and Aquaman at the box office, Warner Bros. Pictures has been trying to distance themselves from the interconnected universe of superheroes created by director Zack Snyder. The success of Joker will only bolster that initiative, and it appears the future of DC Comics on screen will include the return of The Flash, a new movie for Green Lantern, potentially the involvement of J.J. Abrams, and development of projects at HBO Max. Here’s what we know. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Earlier this week, director Patty Jenkins debuted a jaw-dropping poster for Wonder Woman 1984 on her Twitter feed, but the only footage that’s been shown so far was what played at Comic-Con last year and the additional brief look we saw at CinemaCon this April.
One aspect of the sequel we’ve been super curious about is the return of Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), who seemingly met his end in the climactic moments of the 2017 original. In a new interview, Pine was asked about the differences between working on this sequel and working on the first film, and while he didn’t specifically answer how it’s possible that his character comes back, he did talk about how this film operates and how Steve Trevor operates within it. Check out his quotes below. Read More »
