Patty Jenkins Chris Pine Wonder Woman 1984

The rumors are true!  Somehow, Chris Pine‘s Steve Trevor will appear in the 1984-set sequel to ‘Wonder Woman’.  Director Patty Jenkins posted a photo of Pine in all his Members Only/Highway To The Danger Zone glory on Twitter.

Judging by her captions on this and other tweets, it seems as though the sequel will be named ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ or ‘Wonder Woman ’84’.  Or maybe those are just placeholders until Jenkins and Warner Brothers are ready to reveal the full title.

But the real question is HOW is Steve in this movie and still so young?  He appeared to die in ‘Wonder Woman’ with his sacrifice inspiring Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) to take down Ares and to commit herself to aiding humanity, because they are worth saving, despite their flaws.  Are we going to get a Captain America deal, where he was somehow frozen and preserved for decades?  Or will this be like the second season of the ‘Wonder Woman’ TV show, which featured Lyle Waggoner as Steve Trevor Jr., the son of the man he played in the first, 1940s-set season?  While cheesy, that may actually be a fun nod to the old show.  Or will they borrow from the comic books, in which Trevor was killed in the 1960s, but later restored to life by the Amazons’ mystic purple healing ray?

In the photo that Jenkins shared, it looks as though Steve is in the epicenter of all life in the ’80s, The Mall.  She followed that tweet by reposting an image from Gal Gadot’s Twitter, showing Diana herself gazing into the window of an electronics store and a bank of TVs, broadcasting all sorts of images, from the era when cable TV first took off.



Among the images Diana is viewing are a shot of J.R. Ewing from the hit prime time soap opera ‘Dallas’ and Christie Brinkley from the classic comedy movie ‘Vacation.’

Fast forward to the 1980s as Wonder Woman’s next big screen adventure finds her facing an
all-new foe: The Cheetah.  Principal photography is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ follow
up to the Super Hero’s first outing, last summer’s record-breaking “Wonder Woman,” which
took in $822 million at the worldwide box office.  “Wonder Woman 1984” will also be helmed
by acclaimed director Patty Jenkins, and star Gal Gadot in the title role.

Kristen Wiig joins Gadot and Pine, as the villain The Cheetah.  Pedro Pascal (‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’, ‘Game of Thrones’) has been cast in an undisclosed role.  It is also rumored that the 1970s Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter will make a cameo appearance.
