Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 1984 is still a ways away, but one of its biggest mysteries will continue to bug us until the first trailer is released: How in the heck did Chris Pine's Steve Trevor survive the events of the first film and end up in the '80s?

However Mr. Trevor comes back (cloning? magical Themysciran resurrection?), he's in for a major culture shock after being out of the loop for over 60 years. Speaking to Variety, Pine teased his character's return to the DCEU, which sounds a lot like Captain America waking up for the first time since World War II in the MCU.

"This one is a little different for me tonally," he said. "The tables are turned, and I’m more of the deer in the headlights."

Last we saw of the American soldier, he was sacrificing himself during World War I to prevent Ares (David Thewlis) from bringing about mankind's destruction, taking control of a bomber carrying a doomsday weapon and making sure it hurt no one but himself.

Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters on June 5, 2020. Gal Gadot (Diana Prince), Kristen Wiig (Cheetah), Pedro Pascal (maybe Maxwell Lord?), Robin Wright (Antiope), and Connie Nielsen (Hippolyta) are also a part of the A-list cast.
