Director Patty Jenkins has confirmed that the new Wonder Woman movie will be titled Wonder Woman 1984 and she has also revealed some shock news - Chris Pine will be reprise his role as Steve Trevor despite dying in the first movie. 

New publicity shots from the set of the sequel seen on Wednesday show Pine in a natty tracksuit strolling around a typically eighties shopping mall.

Jenkins took to Twitter to officially confirm that Diana King’s love interest from the first film will be back. In the first hugely successful Wonder Woman movie, Trevor died in World War I. 

Gal Gadot, who plays the titular crime fighter with the cool charm bracelets, also tweeted a shot of her own showing her character Diana looking at some rather clunky looking eighties TVs.

The teaser shots have led to much speculation among fans, with some wondering if the track-suited Steve is the same man or whether he has time traveled from the trenches to the lurid eighties or if we only see him in flashback in the new movie. 

Wonder Woman 1984 is set to open on November 1, 2019 and it sees the scourge of all evil doing battle against classic comic book villain Cheetah (who is being played by Kristen Wiig), with Pedro Pascal of Game of Thrones also joining the cast.

Jenkins has previously said of the sequel: "The greatest thing about making this [the first] movie was the fact that you're really building to the Wonder Woman that we all love, but not until the end of the movie.

"The most exciting thing about [the sequel] is literally seeing her loose in the world now, living those classic stories. Here's Wonder Woman, and what can she do?"
