Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins announced Wednesday morning the game-changing return of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor for the film’s 2019 sequel.
If you saw Wonder Woman in 2017, you may recall one key detail about Steve Trevor: HE DIED. Or so we thought?? In a devastating sequence during the final battle, Steve bid Diana goodbye, gave her his family heirloom, and flew straight to his death.
OR SO WE THOUGHT.
Gal Gadot also shared an early still from the movie which shows Diana contemplating a series of cryptic television screens.
We learned early in June that the Wonder Woman sequel will likely be set in 1984, and Jenkins’ tweet suggests Wonder Woman 1984 may even be the title. Notably, in the image she shared, Steve looks dad af. Not only is he alive, but he’s a silver fox with a bomber jacket and some classic Marty McFly sneakers. What’s up, Steve??
Of course, that fatal flight can’t have been without consequence. Steve may be seriously traumatized or suffering from amnesia – and that battle took place in 1917, which means our man either had some work done or got himself frozen (like another famous Steve). He also looks very vulnerable, and we just want him to be okay and sail back to Themyscira with his hero!
The Wonder Woman sequel hits theaters in 2019.
