It was the big question everyone had when Chris Pine was announced for Wonder Woman 1984: How?! How does Steve Trevor come back after Wonder Woman? Not only did Steve die in the first movie, it was set in World War I. So even if Steve hadn't been killed, he'd still most likely be dead or least very old by 1984. He's only human, unlike Diana.
Well, no one involved in Wonder Woman 1984 is going to spoil the How Does Steve Return mystery before the movie's June 2020 opening, but Chris Pine did explain more about how Steve Trevor's role in Diana Prince's story has changed from the first Wonder Woman movie to the sequel:
Watson to her Holmes! I like that. That's the word from Chris Pine to EW, which put Wonder Woman 1984 on its cover this week. We now have new info on lonely Diana Prince, Kristen Wiig's new villain Cheetah, and Pedro Pascal's Maxwell Lord.
But if we're going to talk about Chris Pine, let's talk about Chris Pine -- or hear what director Patty Jenkins has to say about Chris Pine and why she wanted him as Steve Trevor to begin with:
It's part of why Patty Jenkins keeps casting Chris Pine in so many of her projects! Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot told EW there was no chemistry test with Pine, they just got lucky on that connection, which fueled so much of the first Wonder Woman movie:
I still remember appreciating the dry wit of Chris Pine's perfectly timed "Well, that's neat" reply from the first Wonder Woman movie -- after Gal Gadot's Diana said she had no father and her mother sculpted her from clay and was brought to life by Zeus.
To Chris Pine, the love story of Diana and Steve isn't shoehorned into the movie to tick a box, it's integral to the warm, loving character of Wonder Woman herself:
The first trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 came out in early December 2019 and opened with Diana talking to her new friend Barbara Ann Minerva (who becomes sexy Cheetah) about love. Love is a big deal for Wonder Woman, and love is how I felt about that first trailer -- showing her swinging from lightning, rocking new Golden Eagle Armor, enjoying fireworks with Steve, and doing whatever she is doing on that mission that reminds Chris Pine of Sherlock Holmes.
Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins is done making the movie, including all but minor tweaks in editing. She is the one who asked Warner Bros. to give them the June 2020 release date, since 2017's Wonder Woman had good luck opening in June, but then she regretted asking to delay the movie since it was finished early and she's excited for fans to see it. Wonder Woman 2 is scheduled to open in theaters on June 5, 2020. Here's more of what we know so far about the sequel.
Gina grew up in Massachusetts and California in her own version of The Parent Trap. She went to three different middle schools, four high schools, and three universities -- including half a year in Perth, Western Australia. She currently lives in a small town in Maine, the kind Stephen King regularly sets terrible things in, so this may be the last you hear from her.
