Wonder Woman ’84: Steve Trevor doppelgänger feels totally different says Chris Pine

Filming for Wonder Woman 1984 has been completed, and Chris Pine is teasing  a Steve Trevor doppelgänger for the superhero follow-up.

There’s only one DC Extended Universe movie that claims the superlative, “critically acclaimed,” Patty Jenkins 2017 blockbuster, Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot silenced haters and won over doubters in her portrayal of Princess Diana of Themyscira aka Wonder Woman.

The first film merely scratched the surface of the civilian life of Diana’s civilian identity, Diana Prince. Likewise with the cast and crew who were just getting to know one another. As Patty Jenkins told Variety,  they are all familiar with one another:

"“Wonder Woman 1984 is different because we all know each other, and that world is understood a lot more.”"

There’s a sense of familiarity with the cast and crew, as Jenkins knows the world, much like Steve Trevor who helped Diana learn what it was like to live in world of man.

Gal Gadot and Chris Pine’s chemistry made Diana and Steve’s love story one that rivaled Rose and Jack’s from Titanic. And like the tragic tale, it was a sacrifice from Steve that ended their story. Fast forward 74 years to Wonder Woman 1984 and we’ll likely see their story play out all over again, kind of.

Chris Pine is back as a Steve Trevor doppelgänger, but he isn’t the same brass, cocky version fans saw in the original film. In fact, for Pine, the journey filming took them on was an emotional one. While filming, he studied history, as they spent time in Washington DC:

"“I cried in front of the Supreme Court… I was like, man, for all that we f— up, we’re still at it. We’re still trying. So I was super energized and pro-America.”"

Chris Pine also discusses how Wonder Woman ’84 this feels different from its predecessor. More specifically, it’s his character who is wide-eyed and adjusting to the world of man:

"“This one is a little different for me tonally… The tables are turned, and I’m more of the deer in the headlights.”"
