The obvious answer, if you have seen the movie and aren’t a certified moron, is no, because he died sacrificing himself for Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. But people being people have asked the question, to which director Patty Jenkins had this to say, speaking to Fandango:
“All I can say is it was a dilemma. It’s something I hope we don’t talk about in the public [because] I want people to see, but it’s very hard to know which characters will be in the next movie because of the time period, so it’s a big question.”
In other words, no, he won’t be back, because he’s dead, and though this is comic book fantasy land, and the dead rise from their own ashes every issue, Chris Pine’s character does not need a resurrection. More than likely Wonder Woman 2 will be set in either modern day, leading up to some post-Justice League action, or thereafter. One other possible concoction: Wonder Woman may battle it out it with the Nazis, which is my favorite idea, despite my lack of enthusiasm for the first film.
What’s your take?
