With Jurassic World 2 currently filming in London, before shifting production to Hawaii, BD Wong has taken to Instagram to show off one of the costumes he will be wearing as villain Dr Henry Wu. He looks pretty dapper, to say the least, as the caption confirmed he felt like James Bond:
"For some reason, when you shoot in London, the men's clothes they buy here for you make you feel like #007. #sartorial#pussygalore"
He also posed in front of a quote by The Washington's Michael Gerson, asking for interpretation...
Presumably, his villain will come into play as part of the rumoured plot around animal rights. Universal Pictures stoked those rumours when they registered two new domain names, IslaNublarRescueMission.com and AllCreaturesHaveRights.com, and the scientist (who has a notoriously callous approach to animals as commodities) would be the perfect villain in that respect.
Colin Trevorrow has also previously suggested that the film will tackle the issue of animal rights in a speech at the Sitges Film Festival last year:
“The dinosaurs will be a parable of the treatment animals receive today: the abuse, medical experimentation, pets, having wild animals in zoos like prisons, the use the military has made of them, animals as weapons."
Hopefully, Wong will be given more of an expanded role in the sequel
