Pine’s Trevor, who sacrificed himself during World War I in 2017’s “Wonder Woman”, can be seen dressed in an ’80s avatar, along with the extras rocking yesteryear’s look.
Jenkins also shared Gadot’s first look from the new film in which one can see her shadow as she stands in front of a number of TVs playing retro pop culture footage.
