SPOILERS: Children’s books reveal how Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor is back in Wonder Woman1984

July 20th, 2020 by Marc Comments

A few days ago we reported that a major image from Godzilla Vs Kong was leaked on an action figure packaging (here) and now, Wonder Woman has had a big spoiler leaked over those damned kids!

Two new junior novels, the junior novelisation of Wonder Woman 1984 and Wonder Woman 1984: Meet Wonder Woman (I Can Read Level 3) have revealed how Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor,who died in the first Wonder Woman movie, is back for the sequel.

The first big surprises were that Trevor’s return was revealed so early in the movie’s production (here) and then cemented in the trailer (here) but now it looks like Warners have also let the cat out of the bag about how exactly he’s back from the dead.


It seems Trevor is back thanks to the Dreamstone which comes in the form of a citrine ring in the movie. The ring was found in the  Smithsonian where Diana Prince/Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Barbara Ann Minerva/Cheetah (Kristen Wiig) work.

The Dreamstone is a magical item that can grant a wish… and, you guessed it, Diana wished to have the only man she ever loved back and poof! Trevor is back for the sequel.

However, it seems that, like any wish-granting item in stories, the use of the dreamstone also carries with it curse, which means the wish may not be as wonderful as it seems. What exactly this means in the context of the story we can only imagine at this stage.


While it is possible these books are not canon to the movie, I’d imagine that if it’s in these, it’s the official story.

Anyway, I want to hear your thoughts, gang.

Fast forward to the 1980s as Wonder Woman’s next big screen adventure finds her facing two all-new foes: Max Lord and The Cheetah.

With director Patty Jenkins back at the helm and Gal Gadot returning in the title role, “Wonder Woman 1984” is Warner Bros. Pictures’ follow up to the DC Super Hero’s first outing, 2017’s record-breaking “Wonder Woman,” which took in $822 million at the worldwide box office. The film also stars Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Kristen Wiig as The Cheetah, Pedro Pascal as Max Lord, Robin Wright as Antiope, and Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta.

Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Patty Jenkins, Gal Gadot and Stephen Jones are producing the film. Rebecca Steel Roven Oakley, Richard Suckle, Marianne Jenkins, Geoff Johns, Walter Hamada, Chantal Nong Vo and Wesley Coller are the executive producers.

Patty Jenkins directed from a screenplay she wrote with Geoff Johns & David Callaham, story by Jenkins & Johns, based on characters from DC. Joining the director behind the scenes are several members of her “Wonder Woman” team, including director of photography Matthew Jensen, Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (“Amélie”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“Topsy-Turvy”). Oscar-nominated editor Richard Pearson (“United 93”) is cutting the film. The music is by Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer (“Dunkirk,” “The Lion King”).

All being well we’ll see the movie in cinemas on 2nd October, 2020.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
