Patty Jenkins says Chris Pine's return in Wonder Woman 1984 will make sense

Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) made quite the pair in Patty Jenkins' WONDER WOMAN, but as we know, their budding relationship came to a tragic end when Steve heroically sacrificed himself to save the world. Take a moment to shed a tear. When it was announced that Chris Pine would be reprising his role of Steve Trevor for the upcoming sequel, WONDER WOMAN 1984, there was naturally a little confusion as to how that could be.

We still don't officially know the reason behind Steve Trevor's return, but Patty Jenkins spoke on AM to DM recently to reassure fans that it will all make perfect sense when we see the film.

It wasn't a solution to "Oh god, that worked out, let's try to jam you in there.' It's all incredibly important to the story. It makes perfect sense, that's all I can tell you.

Patty Jenkins naturally couldn't say anymore, but she did drop a few hints as to how they've approached the 1980s setting of the sequel. "The 1980s is kind of mankind at their most extreme and at their best. It was when we could do anything we wanted and we had no idea about the price yet," Jenkins said. "So we have really committed to that version of the '80s... it's actually the most aspirational and elegant version of the '80s."

Production on WONDER WOMAN 1984 wrapped up last month, so I'd imagine that we'll be hearing more about the sequel before too long. "We shot in 4 very different locations in 3 countries, and I'm so soooo proud of the almost 1000 crew members who came to set every day, giving everything they have into our movie. Couldn't ask for better partners on this," Gadot said in an Instagram post. "Honestly.. Words cannot describe this experience.. This journey was so demanding and challenging but we all came and did our very best every take, every day, putting our all out there and I’m so proud... Thank you universe for this opportunity. I love this character. And thank you to all of you for being the best fans in the world. It was you that made me push myself every day. I'm so happy and excited, can't wait to share it with you in 2020!"

WONDER WOMAN 1984 will hit theaters on June 5, 2020.
