The first trailer for “Wonder Woman 1984” was released this week, and it’s already raising questions about one of the franchise’s biggest characters.
Diana Prince comes into conflict with the Soviet Union during the Cold War in the 1980s and finds a formidable foe by the name of the Cheetah.
Cast: Gadot will return for the titular role of Wonder Woman. It will also star Pedro Pascal and Chris Pine.
Wait, Chris Pine?: Yes, Chris Pine will return for “Wonder Woman 1984” in his role as Steve Trevor. He appears in the trailer, too.
For those that don’t remember, Steve Trevor went up in smoke after detonating a plane loaded with explosives in midair. He should be dead, or at the very least aged considerably since the events of 1918. Yet Steve looks about the same in this movie, maybe even better?
What happened: So how can Steve Trevor still be alive? “Wonder Woman 1984” director Patty Jenkins said at the Comic Con Experience in Brazil that Trevor may have traveled through time, according to Collider.
- “I can’t tell you (how he’s back), but here’s what I will say: We didn’t put Steve Trevor in this movie because we just wanted to put Steve Trevor in this movie.”
- “When we thought of the story for this film while we were making the first film, a eureka moment came and it couldn’t have been told without Chris Pine playing Steve Trevor.”
- ”So I promise you it’s not a gimmick, it’s integral to the story, it was incredibly important that we had him and we just super enjoyed it. So it was great having Chris back but it’s also important to the story that I can’t wait for you to see.”
