Patty Jenkins Considering Steve Trevor’s Possible Future In The DCEU

Chris Pine Wonder Woman Steve Trevor

Steve Trevor goes out with a bang in Wonder Woman, but is that the last we’ll see of him?

Warner Brothers is looking at the possibility of Chris Pine coming back, according to reports.


In a Fandango interview, director Patty Jenkins addresses a possible sequel and whether or not Pine will return. She indicates the plan is to set the next one in modern times, but she won’t go into specifics.

“All I can say is it was a dilemma. It’s something I hope we don’t talk about in the public,” she says. “I want people to see, but it’s very hard to know which characters will be in the next movie because of the time period, so it’s a big question.”

Pine is said to be signed to a multi-film deal, so there is a possibility of returning. In the comics, Steve dies a number of times over the years, but DC Comics manages to find ways to revive him. For example, the character got killed off in 1968, but Aphrodite brings him back to life years later. In 1978, Steve dies yet again, but he returns in 1980.

While the DCEU’s Steve was single, it is unlikely we’ll see a son or grandson in future movies. However, it is possible a descendant of Trevor might appear. While it won’t be a grandson, it could be a great-nephew or some other relation.

During an interview, Pine jokingly hints at a potential spin-off. “The movie’s gotta come out, and then we’ll see,” he says. “What about Wonder Man?”
