First look at 'Wonder Woman' sequel shows Steve Trevor is alive

Personally, I was hoping for something more straightforward and simplistic such as "Wonder Woman 2" or "Wonder Woman Returns", but neither of those panned out. Returning director Patty Jenkins co-wrote the script with Geoff Johns (who contributed to the original film's story). She captioned the snap, "Welcome to WONDER WOMAN 1984, Steve Trevor!". Wonder Woman would be too late to save J.R. from being shot, but she probably has more important things to do. And nearly exactly a year later, Jenkins has shared the first two images from the sequel, simultaneously confirming a shocking return.

Those of you left heartbroken by the untimely demise of Steve Trevor in the first 'Wonder Woman' movie can rest assured that it's not the last you'll see of him. The film became a massive hit for Warner Bros., becoming the 20th-highest domestic grosser of all time, as well as the second-biggest move of 2017 after "Beauty and the Beast". He added that Minerva will first try to emulate Wonder Woman and then try to step into her shoes.

Gal Gadot is coming back as the titular wonderful woman, and as previously announced the film also stars SNL alumni and world's funniest woman, Kristen Wiig, in the role of the villainous Cheetah.

The next instalment in the DC Universe franchise fast-forwards to the 1980s for "Wonder Woman 1984".

Steve Trevor is back alive in the "Wonder Woman" sequel.

You may also already know that the movie's title, which the tweets seem to confirm is Wonder Woman 1984, has already been teased in recent weeks, confirming the movie's rumored '80s setting. While that would be an interesting take, Wonder Woman is the superhero here. We also have confirmation on the locations.
