Steve Trevor is back, but how? The answer may lie in a small line in the trailer.
The most confusing part about the trailer for “Wonder Woman: 1984” is Steve Trevor’s return.
He seemingly died at the end of 2017’s “Wonder Woman,” which takes place in 1918. Even if he did miraculously survive the plane explosion (which is unlikely), there’s no way Steve can simply look like he hasn’t aged a day in more than 60 years.
Something’s fishy. Are we dealing with time travel? Is Steve even real or simply a vision?
In the first half of the trailer, Lord’s voice is heard saying, “Think about finally having everything you’ve always wanted,” as we see an image of Diana’s face.
Immediately after Steve and Diana are reunited, Lord says, “Now, I take what I want in return.” The trailer scene suggests that Diana makes some sort of deal with Lord in order to get Steve back. It doesn’t seem like something she would selfishly do.
Since we know Lord’s character has dealt with mind control in the comics, he could be doing something to unknowingly persuade Diana to give in to her desire to see Steve again in exchange for something that undoubtedly is bad.
