Chris Pine Talks Wonder Woman 1984
While we wait for Wonder Woman 1984 to finally hit theaters after a number of release date changes, the cast and crew have been busy promoting the film nonstop. Chris Pine recently opened up about the film with Total Film, dropping a few details about Steve Trevor’s current state following his apparent resurrection.
“What I will say about him is that he’s deeply, supremely excited,” Pine explained. “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.”
While Pine couldn’t discuss too many specifics regarding the plot, he did mention that he thought it was “a brilliant move on [director] Patty [Jenkins’] part” to make Steve the fish-out-of-water this time. And he also revealed that he had a feeling he would return while filming the first Wonder Woman. “Patty, towards the end of the first one, had been marinating on an idea,” Pine said. “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].”
Fast forward to the 1980s as Wonder Woman’s next big-screen adventure finds her facing an all-new foe: The Cheetah. As previously announced, the film stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Kristen Wiig in the role of the Super-Villain The Cheetah, as well as Pedro Pascal. Chris Pine also returns as Steve Trevor.
Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman, Monster) returns to direct the sequel, while Jenkins, Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Stephen Jones, and Gal Gadot are producing the film. Rebecca Roven Oakley, Richard Suckle, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns, and Walter Hamada are the executive producers.
Originally set to open in theaters on December 13, 2019, Wonder Woman 1984, which is based on the character created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment, was moved up to November 1 before being delayed to June 5 and a fourth time to August 14 before its current date of October 2. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
