For those wondering how the idea of bringing back Steve Trevor for Wonder Woman 1984 came about, Chris Pine explains it was all director Patty Jenkins.
Speaking with BBC Radio, Pine lets it be known Jenkins came up with the idea while filming the first Wonder Woman movie.
"Not all that surprised," Chris Pine replied when asked about returning for Wonder Woman 1984. "Patty told me this idea somewhere in the middle of the first one. When Patty gets an idea, it's a pretty powerful thing 'cause you can see the kernel land in the dirt and then all of a sudden it starts growing and becomes a tree. She can make you do anything."
It's unknown how Chris Pine returns, as Steve Trevor seemingly died at the end of the first movie, but since the sequel is set some 66 years later, some sort of time travel and / or magic is probably involved.
