If you haven’t seen Wonder Woman yet, then you probably didn’t bother clicking on this link.
If you have, however, you might be pleased to know that a certain unexpected character may be returning for the sequel. Obvious spoilers ahead.
A new report from Screen Rant claims that Chris Pine’s character could actually return in the sequel!
“According to production details Screen Rant has learned, the story of Wonder Woman 2 will be another historical adventure prior to the modern day DCEU. Set during the 1980s, the film will send Diana against the forces of Soviet Union in the closing days of the Cold War. The production team is expected to remain on board for the sequel, with confirmation that Geoff Johns is developing Wonder Woman 2‘s script with Jenkins (who is still in negotiations, with all evidence and word of mouth pointing to her return once the contracts are signed).”
“The report also confirms that Chris Pine will be returning, once again acting as Diana’s ally Steve Trevor. Exactly how that’s possible given the conclusion of his story in Wonder Woman… may be the real question moving forward.”
As to how exactly that is possible, we’re not quite sure yet. Maybe DC is taking a page out of Marvel’s book, and just plans on bringing Pine back without really elaborating as to how.
Speaking of Marvel, Kevin Feige had nothing but positive things to say about the film’s success:
“The success of Wonder Woman is wonderful. It makes us incredibly happy. Finally, we can put to rest the falsehood that audiences don’t want to see female characters. We never believed that was true. There were a run of movies that just weren’t very good 10-15 years ago that caused that reputation. I’m glad that Wonder Woman has blown that away.”
Wonder Woman is still currently playing in theaters.
