Wonder Woman 1984‘s Chris Pine has teased how his character Steve Trevor will be different in the upcoming sequel.
The character’s return has certainly peaked the interest of fans, especially since he seemingly gave his own life in the first movie in order to prevent a bomb exploding.
However, director Patty Jenkins has previously promised that Steve’s return absolutely makes perfect sense, despite the events of the original.
Now, speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Pine teased of his character’s new direction: “In the first movie, I played the world-weary soldier who has seen all the depravity that humankind is capable of displaying.
“And in this one I get to be much more wide-eyed and joyful. My role is really just as a friend, lover, boyfriend-cum-bodyguard who’s trying his best to help Diana on her mission. I’m like the Watson to her Holmes.”

Joining Pine and Gadot for the sequel will be newcomers Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal as villain Maxwell Lord and Kristen Wiig as the Cheetah.
And while we have no direct answer as to how Steve has managed to make it back for the sequel just yet, we do have a pretty interesting theory.
Wonder Woman 1984 has a release date of June 5, 2020.
