Warning: This story contains spoilers for 2017’s “Wonder Woman.”
Filming on the highly anticipated “Wonder Woman” sequel has officially begun, and some just-released photos reveal some important information about the new movie!
Per its working title, “Wonder Woman 1984,” the movie is apparently set in the 1980s, and one image released by Warner Bros. shows that Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), who perished during World War I in the first movie, seems to inexplicably be alive and well in the decade of excess.
Director Patty Jenkins tweeted this photo of Pine on-set in era-appropriate attire:

“Welcome to WONDER WOMAN 1984, Steve Trevor! #WW84,” she captioned the photo, hyping fans for the character’s unexpected return. Given the fact that last time we saw Trevor he was inside an airplane full of poison gas that he himself ignited into a glorious explosion, it’s shocking to see him back.
Gal Gadot, who stars as Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman herself, shared a picture of her character standing in front of several TVs showing iconic pop culture images from the 1980s:

Also set to star in the sequel is “Bridesmaids” star Kristen Wiig, who will play Wonder Woman’s nemesis Cheetah. It’s also possible that Lynda Carter, who famously portrayed Wonder Woman on the 1970s television show based on the DC Comics superhero, will also make an appearance in the sequel.
Another photo from the set that began to circulate online had fans drawing a comparison between Gadot’s outfit and one Carter wore while in character on the show. Check out the side-by-side tweeted by writer Charlie Ashby:

“Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins, we’re soul sisters,” Carter said in an interview with Megyn Kelly back in April. Speaking about a possible role, Carter said, “That is up to Patty Jenkins. I’ve been talking to her about it, and she’s given me some hints about it. And I guess it’s up to Warner Bros. if they want to spend the money.”
The first “Wonder Woman” was the third-highest grossing movie of 2017, coming in behind blockbusters “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and Disney’s live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast.”
“Wonder Woman 1984” is expected to hit theaters on Nov. 1, 2019. Will you be watching?
