Warning: This Post Contains Major Spoilers For Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman is currently getting a lot of attention for its great portrayal of the female superhero. The Patty Jenkins directed movie is cleaning up at the box-office and has an extremely impressive Rotten Tomatoes score. As you can read in my spoiler-free review, possibly my favourite aspect of Wonder Woman was the mesmerising relationship between Diana and Steve Trevor. Both Gal Gadot and Chris Pine delivered amazing performances and the chemistry between the characters was incredible.
Unfortunately, Steve Trevor sacrificed his life in what can only be described as one of the most heroic and depressing scenes within the genre. This would seemingly mean that Pine would no longer have a presence in the DC Extended Universe, but there is perhaps hope that Steve Trevor might appear in a Wonder Woman sequel. While talking to Fandango, Patty Jenkins briefly discussed a possible Wonder Woman sequel and didn’t rule out Pine’s return.
“All I can say is it was a dilemma. It’s something I hope we don’t talk about in the public, I want people to see, but it’s very hard to know which characters will be in the next movie because of the time period, so it’s a big question.”
Of course, Wonder Woman is a comic book movie and there are endless possible explanations for why Steve Trevor returns. It would be cool if Pine appeared in a dream type sequence of Diana’s to show how he is still the love of her life. Otherwise, It would be interesting to see a villain use Steve Trevor as a distraction to defeat Diana. Either way, I think it’s likely that Chris Pine will return as Steve Trevor, even if he isn’t permanently resurrected.
