The first Wonder Woman film was accused of ripping one too many pages out of Captain America: The First Avenger’s book. But the trailer for Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins’ follow-up film, 1984, distinctly feels like it’s own film. OK, so maybe it takes a little influence from Thor: Ragnarok, but the sequel is essentially an ’80s superhero movie and the preview left audiences with a big question: how is Chris Pine in it?
It’s a pretty big reveal, as Steve Trevor is the love of Diana’s life and the two made a darn good team in the first flick, which is why his death was such a heart-wrenching moment for the Amazonian warrior and audiences.
Chris Pine’s involvement in the sequel wasn’t kept a secret for very long, so when his name began popping up in the cast list, many just assumed he would be attached to the project for a series of flashback scenes.
