In The Mail Bag: Brayden G from Mineral Wells, Texas writes in:
“With the release of the Wonder Woman 1984 photos today it had me thinking of something. I know there’s tons of theories of how Steve Trevor might be there alive and or a ghost. Mine isn’t really a theory but what if they treated him being back like Diana in the first film. Diana was filled with this sense of wonder and amazement to the world and had Trevor there to guide her through and help her adjust to the world. What if they flipped it in 1984 where Trevor is the one that’s shocked and amazed that he’s this far in the future and he needs Diana’s help. She has been alive this whole time as we know so seeing her take lead and adjust him to the times could be a pretty cool flip on the first film and a little throwback.”
