  • Pedro Pascal says he once spoiled the plot of "Wonder Woman: 1984" to an Uber driver.
  • Pascal shared the story during an interview on Variety's "Awards Circuit" podcast.

Pedro Pascal may be good at withholding movie and TV secrets from reporters, but rideshare drivers are another story.

"I definitely talked to an Uber driver about everything," Pascal told Variety's Clayton Davis for the magazine's "Awards Circuit" podcast as he deflected a question about an upcoming undisclosed role in Ridley Scott's "Gladiator" sequel.

Pascal said he's usually good at catching himself when a microphone is in front of him since he's regularly asked questions about upcoming seasons of "The Last of Us" and "The Mandalorian," but it's a little different when he's in the back of a car.

"I remember being in an Uber in London before starting to shoot 'Wonder Woman' and a very conversational Uber driver asking me what I was doing in London," Pascal said of shooting the 2020 sequel to Patty Jenkins' DC superhero movie.

Pascal started explaining the movie to the driver, but he probably revealed more than he should have since they didn't start filming yet.

Pedro added that it then turned into him "gradually starting to explain the entire plot of 'Wonder Woman: 1984' and realizing maybe I shouldn't do that."

Released on HBO Max during the pandemic, Pascal starred as one of the film's antagonists, businessman Maxwell Lord who steals a monkey-paw-like stone in the hopes of saving his oil company.

As for "Gladiator 2," Pascal, unsure of what he could and couldn't say about the upcoming film, simply said it was exciting to be on one of Scott's sets, growing up a self-proclaimed "movie nerd."

Denzel Washington and Paul Mescal also star in the sequel, currently slated for a fall 2024 release.
