Not only will the monsters likely get bigger and badder, but so will the cast of Pacific Rim 2. The film has already brought on The Force Awakens star John Boyega to be a part of sequel as the son of Idris Elba’s character which is convenient because Boyega is black and British. Amazing.
No but seriously, this seems to be shaping up a good cast for this type of film. While we all believe Boyega is more talented than solely being cast in big budget sci-fi films, it’s not a bad niche to fall into for now. As far as Eastwood, he used those unfairly attractive features to grace women in some romantic dramas in his time, but appeased to the male audiences when he popped up in David Ayer’s Fury as well as in Ayer’s next big film Suicide Squad.
The unknown role will likely be a Yeager pilot if my common sense doesn’t fail me and it works for me. He’s got a commanding presence like his father and leading man looks without being a useless throw away actor. Eastwood will also be seen in the next installment of the Fast and Furious franchise and Warner Bros. Snowden film. Maybe he can find a home in the Pacific Rim franchise as well as these other big budget films he is staking claim to.
