Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins seems to think that Steve Trevor’s return will make perfect sense.
During a recent interview, the director of Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984 was asked about Steven Trevor’s return in the upcoming film. The interviewer seemed a bit confused as to how this might work given the character’s fate in the previous film. Patty Jenkins laughed and assured him that it will all make sense as she had this new film planned out about halfway through the first one:
It’s interesting. I thought of-I thought of what this next movie should be in the middle of making the first movie. So it’s not…it wasn’t a solution to “Oh God that was worked out! Let’s try and jam you in there!” It’s all incredibly important to the story. It makes perfect sense. That’s all I can tell you.

From the sound of things, Patty Jenkins has Steve Trevor’s resurrection in the bag.
As I am sure we all know, Chris Pine’s character died in the final act of Wonder Woman, sacrificing himself to destroy a payload a dangerous new gas that would have killed millions. The character was announced to return to the film but, despite recent rumors, it is still unclear as to how this happens. But from the sound of things, Patty Jenkins has long since had this worked out.

This ‘Action Comics’ Variant Cover Looks Exactly Like Henry Cavill As Superman
An Action Comics #1009 variant cover bares a striking resemblance to Henry Cavill’s DCEU Superman.
As DC fans continue to voice their desire for a Man of Steel sequel, it was reported in September Henry Cavill will no longer play Superman. Contract negotiations were cited at the main reason for the departure of Henry Cavill from the role, with the actor reportedly wanting more control over the script. Henry Cavill was also in talks to appear in Shazam! until it fell through. It is uncertain when a new Superman will appear on the big screen, with Warner Bros. currently developing a Supergirl film.
Henry Cavill starred in three controversial films as the man of steel, but fans can agree the actor is the most accurate translation to his DC comics roots visually. A new Action Comics #1009 variant cover from artist Jeff Dekal was released and the Superman on the cover looks just like Henry Cavill:
Do you see the resemblance? Do you think Henry Cavill will return in the role? Comment below!
Shazam! is the DCEU’s next film and stars Asher Angel, Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Faithe Herman, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Hounsou. Here’s the official synopsis:
“We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).”
Shazam! will be released in theaters on April 5, 2019, and will be followed by Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A standalone Joker film set outside of the DC Films universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to hit theaters October 4, 2019.
DC’s Action Comics #1009 hits shelves March 27.
