“Wonder Woman 1984”: That’s how Steve Trevor will return
Ever since it has been known that Chris Pine can be seen again as Steve Trevor at the side of Gal Gadot’s heroine in “Wonder Woman 1984”, fans have been wondering what is going on. Now there is the answer that has been suggested for a long time.
After it had already made the rounds before, two books now strongly suggest how “Wonder Woman 1984” brings back the dead Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). Probably because of a mistake, a “Wonder Woman 1984” novel aimed at a young audience and the children’s learning book “Wonder Woman 1984: Meet Wonder Woman (I Can Read Level 3)” have already appeared, although the film was postponed several times (originally yes, a cinema release scheduled for June 2020) is still a long time coming.
Thanks to these books, we now know, among other things, how Steve Trevor will return. Fans have been asking themselves this question since the announcement of the sequel to “Wonder Woman” and especially since the first trailer, in which the character who died in World War I suddenly appears in the 1980s and seems to have no idea what is going on.
Before the unveiling, however, two pointers: These are of course likely SPOILERS, so: Read on at your own risk! But also the important information that such books are mostly based on script versions and changes may still have been made. So details can differ.

A dream stone as a key
A so-called dream stone (also known from some DC comics) is responsible for the return of Steve Trevor. This stone has the power of the gods, can fulfill one wish (but only one per person) – and ends up in the Smithsonian.

Wonder Woman alias Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) works there together with her rather nerdy colleague Barbara Minerva (Kristen Wiig). Unaware of the power of the stone, Diana expresses her desire to get Steve back.

Incidentally, the stone also gives Barbara Minerva powers (because she wishes to be like Wonder Woman), making the character the antagonist Cheetah used by the main villain Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) – and Diana herself loses her powers more and more.
Prequel comics are coming
While the early publication of these books is probably a mistake due to the many postponements caused by the corona, a book that is directly related to the film is regularly on the market beforehand.
Recently the comic book “Wonder Woman 1984 No. 1 ”announced, which will be released as a prequel to the film in September. It contains two stories that are set just before the events in the film and are intended to show us how Wonder Woman set itself up in the 1980s.

In the first story we already learn that Diana works at the Smithsonian. When there is a hostage situation there, Wonder Woman has to enter the scene. The events in the second story are probably a direct result of the fact that Wonder Woman has now shown herself again in public: someone is trying to steal her lasso of truth.
“Wonder Woman 1984” by director Patty Jenkins is now due to hit theaters on October 1, 2020, but this date can still be postponed. Distributor Warner has already announced as part of the recent postponement of “Conjuring 3” that it will keep an eye on the situation around the corona pandemic and the cinemas that are still largely closed in the USA and, if necessary, postpone further films.
