WONDER WOMAN 1984 Director Patty Jenkins Promises That Steve Trevor's Return "Makes Perfect Sense"

We still have a long list of questions about Wonder Woman 1984 and chief among them is how Chris Pine's Steve Trevor returns. Now, director Patty Jenkins has addressed that and the 1980s setting...

Wonder Woman 1984 will move the action from World War I to the 1980s so how on Earth does Steve Trevor - who died decades before this movie takes place - make his return? That remains to be seen but director Patty Jenkins has now assured fans that it's not just a gimmick and will make sense. 

"I thought of what this next movie should be in the middle of making the first movie, so it wasn't a solution to 'Oh, that worked out, let's try to jam you in there.' It's all incredibly important to the story," she reveals. "It makes perfect sense, that's all I can tell you."

Jenkins went on to address the time period of the Wonder Woman sequel and made it clear that while she'll be drawing from her own memories, her goal is to avoid relying on familiar jokes and gimmicks about the 80s. 
 
"I really felt like the 1980s was mankind at their most extreme and at their best. It was when we could do anything we wanted and we had no idea of the price yet. So we have really committed to that version of the 80s. It's not a bunch of jokes. It's actually the most kind of aspirational and elegant version of the 80s in many places. And then you kind of throw it away and get used to it. I enjoyed rolling around in remembering what it was like when we had no idea it was going to stop."

We know that the Amazon warrior is in good hands with Jenkins but pulling off Trevor's return and having it make sense with what we've seen of Diana Prince in the present day could be a challenge. Now that the movie is coming out next June instead of this November, we have a very long time to wait before getting the answers we want.
