Chris Pine Is Back In First Official Wonder Woman 1984 Photo!

There are worse things to wake up to in the morning. For weeks now, there’s been reports that the next Wonder Woman film would actually be called Wonder Woman 1984, and for months before that, there were rumors that not only would the film take place in the 1980s, but that fan-favorite Steve Trevor (played by Chris Pine) be back.

Now, in a single tweet, director Patty Jenkins has confirmed all of the above. In the tweet, she shares a photo of Chris Pine looking bewildered in the middle of a shopping mall. Everyone around him looks like they’ve come straight out of the 1980s, and in the caption, Jenkins wrote:

“Welcome to WONDER WOMAN 1984, Steve Trevor! #WW84″

I had two reactions when first seeing this. “Yea!….hm…”

So, for starters, there is no doubt that Pine was a big part of what made that first Wonder Woman work (not to take away from the work that Gal Gadot did, mind you). His chemistry with Gadot was undeniable, and he added a real dose of humanity to it all. But…he sacrificed himself at the end of the film. What’s more is that in Justice League, it seemed to imply that Wonder Woman hadn’t actually seen him since then.

Apparently, that was a big ol’ lie. Will they be able to make this happen in a believable way. Of course, comic books are no strangers to killing people off and bringing them back, but in a world where we’ve seen this happen numerous times in the MCU, you have to wonder if audiences will be able to buy this.

Regardless, I’m intrigued, and happy to see that the next film is underway!
