In Tenet, Robert Pattinson might play a demolitions expert brought in by Washington in an attempt to avoid WWIII. His character is shown plotting to crash a plane through a building at the trailers end.

Similar to Pattinson, Clemence Poesy played character named as Fleur Delacour, anotherTriwizard champion in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” and ends up marrying Bill Weasley in the seventh part of Harry Potter franchise “The Deathly Hallows- Part 1” where death eaters attack the leading characters.
