Rumoured details on how Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor returns in Wonder Woman 1984

Potential spoilers follow…

Given his fate at the end of last year’s Wonder Woman, Warner Bros. and DC Films left fans scratching their head earlier this year when it was confirmed that Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor will be making his return in the hotly-anticipated sequel Wonder Woman 1984.

Well, if a rumour from SuperBroMovies is to be believed, it seems we may now have our answer, as the site is reporting that Pedro Pascal’s mystery businessman character will actually turn out to be an evil god in disguise. Apparently he strikes a deal with Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, whereby he’ll resurrect her love if Diana does his bidding.

In a twist on the first movie, the resurrected Steve Trevor won’t return as quite the same person Diana fell for during The Great War; instead, this time we’ll see him taking on the “fish

It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years since Twilight hit theaters. Not only did the 2008 film help jump-start the careers of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, aka Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, but it also helped paved the way for many other book-to-movie adaptations. Ahead of the film's monumental anniversary, Popsugar had a chance to talk with director Catherine Hardwicke about how it all began, the film's legacy, and the importance of female directors in Hollywood. See what she had to say ahead.

Popsugar: What made you want to sign on to this film? Were you a fan of the books?

Catherine Hardwicke: So, I was given the script at Sundance when I was a juror in 2007. A bunch of scripts, five scripts, were from Summit; they were going to form this new company.

What the Marvel Cinema Universe needs next: A gay superhero

What the Marvel Cinema Universe needs next: A gay superhero
We run out of superlatives to describe the pure phenomenon that is Kevin Feige‘s Marvel Cinema Universe (McU). Each new Marvel film smashes box-office records, draws in millions of fans, earns great critical reviews and brings us beloved characters to enjoy, awe and, in the case of Chadwick Boseman‘s T’Challa, pine over.

Admittedly, other franchises can achieve those feats too, with Star Wars doing so with “The Force Awakens” and the Harry Potter universe set to do so with the next “Fantastic Beasts” instalment. But what sets the McU apart from all other franchises is its commitment to representing its entire audience, making some of their films socially, crucially important.

Black Panther” was the first film to feature a black superhero as its lead, as well as have a predominantly black supporting cast. This is so important, particularly for kids – they will be able to see themselves

Japanese Aquaman Trailer Goes All in on Epic Underwater War

Japanese Aquaman Trailer Goes All in on Epic Underwater War
Aquaman is now three months away from opening in theaters and Warner Bros. and DC Films are starting to ramp up the promotional campaign. Jason Momoa returns to his Arthur Curry role for the first standalone film for the aquatic superhero, who often ends up at the butt of the joke. Momoa and director James Wan are hoping to take Curry and bring a cool edge that has not been present in the comic books or previous animated shows. While it's too early to tell if they succeeded on their "make Aquaman cool mission," they certainly packed a lot of underwater action into the international trailer.

The first trailer for Aquaman was shown to an enthusiastic audience at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. The trailer was released online simultaneously and DC fans were generally pretty happy with what they saw. However, the lucky attendees were treated to some more footage,

25 Unused Wonder Woman Concept Art Designs Way Better Than What We Got

DC finally got it right with Wonder Woman.

The Dceu had a promising start with a solid but slightly flawed Man of Steel. However, instead of building on its strengths, the fledgling Dceu started to spiral by doubling down on darkness. Batman v Superman disappointed legions of fans with its dreary tone, and while Suicide Squad was slightly brighter, it was critically panned for its script.

By the time Wonder Woman was set to premiere, studio execs were understandably nervous.

However, Wonder Woman delivered well beyond anyone's expectations. Viewers who were worried about bringing Wonder Woman to the big screen had nothing to be scared of, as the movie knocked it out of the park.

Wonder Woman avoided the dark tone of the previous Dcu efforts. Instead, it gave us a hero who was optimistic - a goddess who believes in love and humanity.  Wonder Woman fights for the little

Brie Larson Heard Complaints That Captain Marvel Needs to Smile More, So She Posted McU Men With Photoshopped Smiles

Brie Larson Heard Complaints That Captain Marvel Needs to Smile More, So She Posted McU Men With Photoshopped Smiles
Brie Larson isn’t here for your sexist reactions to the “Captain Marvel” trailer that dropped online September 18. A small corner of the internet reacted to the trailer by criticizing it for not featuring the titular superhero smiling more (via Vox). One Twitter user went so far as to take screenshots of Larson in the trailer and photoshop a smile onto her face.

Captain Marvel happens to be the first female superhero to receive her own solo movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This sexist reaction obviously found its way to Larson, who responded to it by posting to social media photoshopped posters for “Iron Man 3,” “Doctor Strange,” and “Captain America” featuring the male superheroes smiling.

Captain Marvel” stars Brie Larson in the title role. The film is a spin on the traditional superhero origin story as it finds half-human, half-Kree Captain Marvel crash-landing on Earth, where she’s

Wonder Woman writer developing female superhero team series for Marvel and ABC

Having been home to Marvel’s first ever female-led project in Agent Carter, Deadline is reporting that ABC has now enlisted Wonder Woman screenwriter Allan Heinberg to develop a new Marvel series for the network which will focus on a team of female superheroes.

Captain Marvel’s Trailer Views Are Already Through The Roof

Higher. Further. Faster.

It’s yet to be determined whether Captain Marvel is able to travel faster and further than her McU counterparts – chances are she will, given the fact that her abilities are simply off the charts – but based on Marvel’s trailer analytics, Carol Danvers is very much capable of going higher. Much higher.

Case in point: the studio has today announced that, at 109 million, Captain Marvel‘s blistering first teaser trailer amassed more views than both Captain America: Civil War and Black Panther – two billion-dollar hits to come out of Marvel Studios in the past three years.

Only Thor: Ragnarok (136 million) and the two trailers for Avengers: Infinity War (230 million and 179 million) scored higher across the same time period, but take nothing away from Captain Marvel‘s achievement – Tuesday’s trailer reveal simply placed Carol Danvers in the company of greatness, where she’ll remain for a very,
