On Wednesday, Chris Pine and Gal Gadot were spotted filming for the upcoming sequel of Wonder Woman: 1984 in Alexandria, Virginia.

Hours before this sighting, director Patty Jenkins had tweeted an image of Pine from the movie. Fans have been left puzzled by Pine’s appearance in the sequel as his character was killed off in the first film. Additionally, Wonder Woman: 1984 is set almost 70 years after the WWI era of the first film, which further adds to the confusion.

As is common with comic book characters, there are various theories as to how Pine’s character, Trevor, has returned after his apparent death in the first film. These include time travel, resurrection, and alternate universes. Another possibility is that Pine may be playing Trevor’s son.

The continuation of the story takes place during the year 1984, and the clothing choices of the main characters on Wednesday clearly had a retro vibe.

Recently, Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman, shared an image on Twitter of her character gazing at a dozen TV screens. The fashion and decor around her suggest that the film is set in the Reagan Era.
