Near the end of Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor sacrificed his life to save the world. In a few months, moviegoers will learn how Steve returns when the sequel (hopefully) hits theaters. While speaking with Total Film, Pine teased the arrival of a brand new Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman 1984.
Pine noted that in the original movie, Steve was mainly concerned with completing his mission and winning the war. But in the sequel, it sounds like Steve is ready to kick back and have some fun with his new surroundings.
“What I will say about him is that he’s deeply, supremely excited,” said Pine. “He’s excited to be back with Diana. He’s excited about this world. Tonally, what’s different is, he’s not world-weary. He’s not jaded. It’s a complete 180 from the tone of the character of the first one.”
Steve’s adjustment to the ‘80s will likely inject some comic relief into the film’s story, much like Diana’s arrival in “Man’s World” did in the first film. In fact, Pine says this role-reversal is a big part of what makes the sequel so different from its predecessor.
“I thought it was a nice idea,” added Pine. “It’s a brilliant move on [director] Patty [Jenkins’] part. That’s just one clear indication of a big tonal shift this time out.”
“Patty, towards the end of the first one, had been marinating on an idea,” continued Pine. “So yeah, I had an idea that I would come back. I think she may have even started to break the story while we were promoting [the first film].”
Wonder Woman 1984 opens on October 2.
