Steve Trevor lives?!
On Wednesday, Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot along with director Patty Jenkins announced on Twitter the fate of Chris Pine’s character inside film’s sequel, Wonder Woman 1984.
“Welcome to WONDER WOMAN 1984, Steve Trevor! #WW84,” Jenkins tweeted alongside a photo of Pine’s character alive along with well, standing in a tracksuit next to an ice cream shop in a mall. The photo also features background actors in classic ’80s attire along with hairstyles.
Gadot shared her excitement for the film by posting a pic of her character, Wonder Woman herself, standing in front of several TV screens which could be clues to the movie’s plot. “Wonder Woman 1984 #WW84,” the 33-year-old actress captioned the image, which was also shared by Jenkins.
Pine’s appearance inside sequel will be something of a surprise, considering his character’s supposed fate in 2017’s runaway hit. When ET’s Cameron Mathison caught up with the star last July, he seemed unsure as to whether his character might return for the second movie.
“I’m an actor, man. I’m about as lazy as they come,” Pine, 37, quipped when asked if he’d pitch ideas of how his character could return for the sequel. “So, I’ll be by my phone or somewhere so they can find me whenever they want to give me the call. I don’t know [if Steve Trevor survived the blast]. I guess you’ll have to wait along with find out.”
Jenkins also spoke to ET last August about what the film’s sequel might look like.
“The greatest thing about producing This kind of movie was the fact which you’re truly building to the Wonder Woman which we all love, although not until the end of the movie,” Jenkins reflected. “The most exciting thing about [the sequel] will be literally seeing her loose inside entire world right now, living those classic stories.”
The 46-year-old director continued, “Here’s Wonder Woman, along with what can she do? the idea should be a totally different movie, although a grand along with right now full-blown Wonder Woman inside entire world.”
Wonder Woman 1984, due out November 1, 2019, will also star Kristin Wiig as the film’s villain, The Cheetah. Here’s more on the upcoming sequel:
