The long-awaited Wonder Woman sequel starring Gal Gadot, entitled Wonder Woman 1984, is set to grace the big screen this November. It's all been very hush-hush, and we still don't know much about the story apart from the fact that there's a new awesome female villain (played by Kristen Wiig)... and that STEVE. IS. BACK.
We were all devastated when Chris Pine a.k.a. Steve Trevor *SPOILER ALERT* "died" in an explosion at the end of Wonder Woman (raise your hand if you shed tears!). But since this is a superhero film based on a comic book, you never know what might happen.
During this year's San Diego Comic-Con, Chris and director Patty Jenkins said that they can't reveal how Steve Trevor returns in
#WW84, but it's an important part of the film's story.
Fortunately for us, fan theories are within reach! Here's what the Internet has come up with so far:
Steve is very much alive.Movies resurrecting characters from the dead? Nothing new. Maybe there was a seat eject button on the helicopter? Or some sort of godly power decided to save Steve? Whatever the case, we just want more of Chris Pine and his incredible ~*blue eyes*~.
It's not really him.
The Steve we see is a direct descendant a.k.a. the OG Steve's grandson. After all, in the '80s TV show, Linda Carter's Wonder Woman ends up in the future where Steve Trevor's son, Steve, Jr. is introduced.
He's a figment of Diana's imagination.Maybe Diana's been missing him a lot and she's trying to remember what he looks like, and somehow gives us a glimpse of him in the process?
*Gasp* He's the enemy!A villain, specifically the comics' Doctor Psycho, could have created a version of Steve to fight or distract Wonder Woman. Nooooooo (but think of the fight scenes!).
Themyscira did its job.We all know the island's enchanted. Remember that scene where Steve takes a bath in the pool? What if some of that island *magic* somehow managed to rub off on him—making him invincible and forever youthful?
