For much of 2017’s Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) was a modern world tour guide while Diana (Gal Gadot) was the fish out of water. Their roles will be reversed, however, when Trevor, who died in World War I, is alive several decades later in Wonder Woman 1984.
“This one is a little different for me tonally,” Pine told Variety during the final days of production. “The tables are turned, and I’m more of the deer in the headlights.”
We do not yet know exactly how Steve Trevor has returned from the dead, but he’s missed a lot. Diana, meanwhile, has been around this whole time and now she’ll be the one helping Steve catch up to the current way of the world.
Pine also discussed getting emotional while filming in Washington, D.C. earlier in principal photography. “I cried in front of the Supreme Court,” he said. “I was like, man, for all that we f— up, we’re still at it. We’re still trying. So I was super energized and pro-America.”
We’ll have to search for clues regarding Steve Trevor’s return when Warner Bros. eventually drops the first trailer. Wonder Woman 1984 isn’t due in theaters until June of 2020, however, so our best hope of catching a glimpse of the film is probably San Diego Comic-Con in July.
