Actor Riz Ahmed is truly at his very best, oozing through genres in Hollywood. The British Pakistani actor is glistening these days, toplining Hollywood with a credible plethora of roles, from the recent Marvel film ‘Venom,’ ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ to Oscar-nominated films like ‘Nightcrawler.’ Apart from being a dope rapper too (if you haven’t heard of his band ‘Swet Shop Boys’ then what on earth are you doing with your life), he’s apparently now going to be in one of the biggest superhero movies of All. Freaking. Time.
According to English publication the ‘Metro,’ Riz Ahmed has been approached to be a part of the ensemble cast of the film…
…Wait for it…
Wonder Woman 2!
YEAH DAS OUR BOIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
The actor has allegedly been shortlisted alongside Pedro Pascal (of ‘Narcos’ fame) and Kristen Wiig
According to film critic Jeff Sneider, he stated that he “would imagine that Pedro Pascal is playing someone who’s just maybe a villain…there were two decently sized male roles for Wonder Woman II, and one was a slippery conman type and the other was an opposing businessman…I heard they were looking at Riz Ahmed for that role.”
The second installment of the ‘Wonder Woman’ franchise will release on November 1, 2019!
