A new photo has surfaced of John Boyega in 2018’s Pacific Rim: Uprising, and frankly, he looks amazing! You can see the picture below.
As you can probably see, this is very cool! The Star Wars: The Force Awakens star, John Boyega, will be playing the son of Idris Elba’s character in 2013’s Pacific Rim, Stacker Pentecost.
Boyega’s suit, without CGI added in, looks very cool. The blue is very nice. It was the first aspect of the picture that I noticed when I looked at it for the first time. He kind of looks like he’s trying to recreate Smallville’s scene with Clark, Aquaman, Cyborg, Green Arrow, and Bart Allen walking away from an explosion. Or he could just be seeing a monster overtaking a part of the city.
The Pacific Rim 2 cast will consist of some other stars on the rise in Suicide Squad’s Scott Eastwood, The Killing’s Levi Meaden, and Emerald City’s Adria Arjona. Fan favorite Guillermo del Toro will not be directing the movie though. But he will instead produce the film, and has written the story. Marvel’s Daredevil writer Steven S. DeKnight will instead be taking over as the director.
As someone who is a big fan of monster movies, I cannot wait for this sequel! Sadly, we’ll all have to wait until February 23, 2018 though to see it!
