The wait for Wonder Woman 1984 continues. Production on the film wrapped over the holiday but we’re no closer to learning anything about it. That was until Chris Pine recently sat down with Variety a few days before production wrapped and shared a nugget of information. And while it’s small, it gives us a bit of insight to what’s going on with our favorite World War I spy.
Pine initially gushed a bit about all the filming locations they were able to go to, including Spain and Washington D.C., expressing some pride in his country. But when asked about how his role will play out in the film, he hinted that the shoe may be on the other foot. “This one is a little different for me tonally. The tables are turned, and I’m more of the deer in the headlights.” Given that he would be incredibly confused with the modern day, it’s essentially confirmed that this Steve Trevor is the one from the early 1900s. How in the dickens is he there? Well, we had a theory about that but we know nothing more.
I’m very much looking forward to seeing Steve Trevor stumbling through the 1980s. Just picturing him staring at everyone’s big hair brings a giant smile to my face. It will also be a nice change of pace to have Diana (Gal Gadot) showing him around. One of the biggest questions I have about it is – will she give him a clothing montage, too? I kid, but it brings up an interesting question. Will Steve Trevor be able to handle being completely out of his element for that long? Sure he was on Themyscira but this is America, the country he grew up in – and it’s changed drastically. We’ll have to wait and see.
What do you think of Pine’s comments? Are there any 80’s stereotypes or situations you’d like to see Steve in? Let us know! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more DC news.
