Comic book movie fans sure do love to make ridiculous theories about the future of their favorite properties. Every now and then, these theories find their way to the filmmakers.
During a conversation with ELLE, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins addressed a rumor that could explain how Steve Trevor might have survived the plane explosion that seemingly killed him in the climactic events of the film and could leave the door open for Chris Pine to return in the sequel. The theory suggests that when Trevor bathed in the waters on Themyscira, the magical Amazonian waters could have imbued upon him healing properties that will help resurrect him. The director responded to the theory, stating:
“I’ve got bad news for everybody.”
See Patty Jenkins address this and other fan theories in the video below:
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Lisa Loven Kongsli as Menalippe, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Sir Patrick Morgan/Ares, Elena Anaya as Doctor Maru/Doctor Poison, Ewen Bremner as Charlie, Saïd Taghmaoui as Sameer and Eugene Brave Rock as the Chief. Here is the official synopsis:
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.
Wonder Woman is now available to own on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.
7 Wonder Woman Villains Perfect For Future Sequels
Now that Wonder Woman is officialy getting a sequel, it’s time to start fantasizing about what we’ll see in the character’s next cinematic solo outing and beyond. Wonder Woman has a rich rogues gallery that has transformed and grown alongside her as she’s become one of the world’s most iconic heroes.
Ares, the Greek god of war, was the main villain for Wonder Woman’s first outing, but DC is gonna need to shake things up for future projects. Diana Prince has already proved herself a terrific warrior in Batman v Superman when she took on Doomsday, so I’m excited to see who the creators want to throw at her next. She doesn’t need a full team beside her — Wonder Woman is warrior enough to defend the innocent from all types of threats.
