Wonder Woman 1984 is less than a year away from us now. Well, it would have been just 5 months away if it wasn’t for the immense competition all around the month, but it is okay that WB and the creatives are taking their time to get the movie right. It will be set more than 60 years after the first Wonder Woman movie, but the big surprise is going to be that Steve Trevor played by Chris Pine is going to be back in business. It has been revealed in the past that there is a valid and very understandable reason of how Trevor has come back.
People of the similar faces appearing in different eras is a pretty common thing in reality as well, but how is it possible that the same man appears in two different points within the timeline. This just makes the story a bit complex and unbelievable. But we totally trust Patty Jenkins & co. She must have a great reason for bringing Pine back.
Over Wonder Woman and the miniseries, I Am the Night, Chris Pine and Director Jenkins have formed quite the partnership and now they’ve continued that in Wonder Woman 1984. The chemistry between Gal Gadot & Chris Pine and the love story of Diana & Steve is what drove the previous Wonder Woman movie. So, it is easy to assume that we just had to get another go at it even if Trevor was presumed to be dead at the end of the first film.
The Hollywood Reported recently hosted a roundtable and there they asked Jenkins that what was the reason for her to bring Pine back into the mix? Here’s what she had to say:
“I’ve had it happen with several actors where you really get up to speed and you know that person, so you see this incredible skill that they’re of. So you can spin them this way, and that’s fun. You can spin them that way. Chris and I definitely have that. I also think that he has a bunch of dimensions of him that I haven’t quite seen him get to explore. Now, at this point, I’m feeling like I just want to keep working with so many of the same actors because it is so fun.”
Pine is obviously a very talented actor and we love the fact that we’re gonna see a new dimension of his in the upcoming Wonder Woman sequel. Steve will surely have been evolved in this movie and we are going to see a different version of him in the film. Here’s what Chris Pine himself had to say in a previous interview about his return from the dead:
“I found this time, the tables had turned on me as a man, in terms of how I interacted and played on the screen. I loved, as the character, my woman. My partner. She’s my partner. So that came to define this man. What a wonderful thing, as a character, to be in love. As a man on screen in a big film, it was interesting because my ego comes out: ‘Well, I want the big f–king fight. Let me climb something.’ And Patty’s like, ‘No, not about you.’ She said ‘not about you’ more times making this film.”
Wonder Woman 1984 was going to release on November 1 this year, but it was delayed to June 5, 2020. As far as the reason for this delay is concerned, Producer Charles Roven spoke with Collider and he has told us why this delay was really needed. Here’s the reason that he gave:
“We always wanted the date that we are on right now. The studio felt that until their slate for the year before came together—and they had an amazing end of 2018—that they needed to have a big what I call aircraft carrier, a ‘tentpole’, in . We had a very rushed pre-production because Patty also did the TNT show [I Am the Night] and we had a very rushed post-production schedule in order to make the date that we were on, which was November 1, 2019.
We were doing it because the studio said they really needed it, and then at a certain point they came to us and they said, ‘You know what, you guys are right. Let’s go back to the month that you guys released Wonder Woman 1 in, and take the extra time.'”
Hopefully, this film will turn out to be better than the first film.
