Comic-Con 2018: Wonder Woman 1984 Panel Addresses The Chris Pine Question, Shows Footage
How can Chris Pine be in this Wonder Woman sequel?
During Warner Bros.' massive Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, the studio brought Wonder Woman 1984, showing off some never before seen footage of the eagerly anticipated sequel.
In the exclusive footage, which was called "a rough cut of what we're working on" (the movie has only just begun filming recently), Wonder Woman fought a pair of gunmen in a 1980s mall. She tossed a little girl to safety, crushed the men's guns with her bare hands, then lassoed them with her iconic, glowing rope. In a later scene, she ran so quickly through a crowded street that she appeared to almost float, gracefully, above the pavement.
Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins took the stage with actors Gal Gadot and Chris Pine for some discussion, too. Naturally, moderator Aisha Tyler asked how Chris Pine can be in this Wonder Woman sequel, given the events of the first film.

"I'm actually not really here right now," Pine joked. "No, I can't...I can't tell you that."
"What is he back here for?" Jenkins continued. "Well, it's something I'm super excited for everybody to see--the movie--to find out. It's a very important part of our movie."
As far as Wonder Woman 1984's story, "it's not a sequel," Gadot said--it's a brand new movie and "its own story."
Jenkins went on to say that she believes Wonder Woman is more human than most heroes--that people of all types, regardless of gender, age, or any other factor, can see themselves in her. She said they want to capture that same feeling in Wonder Woman 2.
