Chris Pine has let a few details out about his return as Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman 1984. Pine spoke with Total Film (via Games Radar) about the film, which sees him reprise the role of Steve after he died in the World War I-set climax of the first Wonder Woman. A couple of highlights are below:

On Steve’s mindset in the film: “What I will say about him is that he’s deeply, supremely excited. He’s excited to be back with Diana. He’s excited about this world. Tonally, what’s different is, he’s not world-weary. He’s not jaded. It’s a complete 180 from the tone of the character of the first one.”

On Steve’s fish out of water status: “It’s a brilliant move on Patty [Jenkins’] part. That’s just one clear indication of a big tonal shift this time out.”

On when discussion about bringing Steve back began: “Patty, towards the end of the first one, had been marinating on an idea. So yeah, I had an idea that I would come back. I think she may have even started to break the story while we were promoting [the first film].”

Wonder Woman 1984 stars Gal Gadot, Pine, Pedro Pascal, and Kristen Wiig. It is set to release on October 2nd after a few release date bumps due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
