Photos have been leaked from the set of Wonder Woman 1984 (as the sequel of 2017’s Wonder Woman now seems to be called), among other things showing star Gal Gadot reunited with Chris Pine.
The image, posted on Instagram by the account DCGlobee, seems to show both actors in costume, though if so Pine’s is simply a white shirt and slicked-back hair. It is not clear if the two are filming a scene or just walking together on set.
Gadot plays Wonder Woman, the immortal Amazon princess now protecting the world in self-imposed exile, while Pine played Steve Trevor, her love interest from the first film. Spoiler alert: he died. Of course, since Wonder Woman was set during in World War I and the sequel is in the 1980s, he would be an old man anyway, making Pine’s inclusion in the sequel unquestionable.
It has been suggested that Pine may simply appear in a flashback or dream sequence, but Pine’s outfit in the photo does not fit his Edwardian costume from the first film. Another theory is that he could be playing a different “Steve Trevor,” presumably a relative of the first; this has precedent in the 1970s Wonder Woman TV series, where Lyle Waggoner played the character in the first season’s World War II setting and then his son in later seasons, which were set in then-modern times.
Another photo was released by the Twitter user @Wondygal. It shows Gadot walking along a street in the same costume as the Steve Trevor photo, with a painter working in the background. Given that the DC Extended Universe has Wonder Woman working at the Louvre in its modern stories, this may show how she began her new career in Paris.
A third picture, on Reddit, seems to be set between takes, as other production crew are in the scene as Gadot stands in front of a car crushed by a giant boulder. Did Wonder Woman do that herself, or was it the result of some villain’s action? The Cheetah (played by Kristen Wiig) isn’t usually depicted as that strong… There also seems to a bit of paint on the rock that looks vaguely like an eye, so maybe it’s just a weird modern art piece.
Wonder Woman 1984 has a way to go before its release on November 1, 2019.
