The pairing was established by William Moulton Marston, Wonder Woman's creator, in the 1940s. Up until the 1980s, the pairing was featured in various Wonder Woman comics as well as in the Wonder Woman (1975–1979) TV series. Between 1985 and 2011, the pairing was broken up in the main comics universe and both characters developed romantic relationships with others. Elseworlds and adaptations such as Wonder Woman: Amazonia and the Wonder Woman (2009) animated movie did occasionally feature the couple, though not necessarily in a way that was considered in-character in the main verse (e.g. evil Steve Trevor).
In the comics, their first meeting happens in the present as opposed to during the First World War that is canon in the DC Cinematic Universe.
Steve Trevor has been Wonder Woman's love interest since the Golden Age but Diana/Steve isn't a particularly well-known pairing in modern fandom due to the fact that they hadn't been presented as each other's love interests since 1985. The pairing started attracting attention again when the New 52 reintroduced Steve Trevor as a potential love interest not only in the main universe but also in several popular alternate universe properties such as DC Bombshells, The Legend of Wonder Woman, the Smallville comics and even the DC Super Hero Girls comics.
The DC Cinematic Universe sparked even more interest in the pairing by featuring Steve Trevor as Wonder Woman's love interest in the Wonder Woman (2017) movie. Fan response to the portrayal of the relationship was overwhelmingly positive. On 13th June 2017, Fandometrics reported that Diana/Steve jumped from being a rarepair to the 10th most discussed pairing on Tumblr that week.
The tragic ending inspired much angst both among fans and in fanworks up until the first leaks confirmed that Steve Trevor would be returning in the next Wonder Woman movie. These developments reinvigorated the fandom and gave way to much speculation.
