AceShowbiz - "Wonder Woman 1984" isn't coming out until next year, but some plot details of the movie have allegedly leaked online. The juicy spoilers, if they are true, answer the question as to how Chris Pine's Steve Trevor is brought back in the upcoming movie, despite his apparent death in the first film.
The Hashtag Show claims to have learned from an inside source who revealed that Maxwell Lord would play a big role in Steve's return as well as the origin of the main villain Cheetah. [SPOILER ALERT!] Lord will reportedly transfer his soul into Steve's body.
In the comic books, Lord's power is mind-manipulation. However, in the "Wonder Woman" sequel, he will have the ability to grant people's wishes. Barbara Minerva (Kristen Wiig), who is a huge fan of Wonder Woman, becomes Cheetah through Lord's power. At first she's the hero she wants to be. But it comes with a consequence as she can't control her beast side, sending her down the villain's path.
Also in the film, Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) will reportedly go undercover as a spy during the Cold War. She's on a mission to hunt down a nefarious Russian spy. The movie will reportedly ignore the Wonder Woman timeline in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". In "Wonder Woman 1984", she will be already known as a superhero, as opposed to in "Batman v Superman" where Bruce Wayne just discovered her alter ego.
There has been rumor that Pedro Pascal could be playing Maxwell Lord, but it's not confirmed yet. Other stars in the movie include Natasha Rothwell, Ravi Patel and Indian actress Soundarya Sharma, but their roles are still unknown.
Patty Jenkins returns as director for the upcoming movie, which script was written by her, Dave Callaham and Geoff Johns. "Wonder Woman 1984" is set to bow on June 5, 2020.
