It has been reported that Chris Pine is all set to play Steve Trevor, actress Gal Gadot’s boyfriend in “Wonder Woman.” According to TheWrap, Pine has joined the DC Movie Universe in a contract that would involve multiple pictures, sequels, and more.
The movie will be directed by Patty Jenkins and produced Zack and Deborah Snyder. Script has been penned by Jason Fuchs. It will be released in 2017.
It has been hinted that Steve will not just serve as eye candy and as Wonder Woman’s beau. Pine himself may be in for some action scenes.
Previously, the “Star Trek” actor was rumored to play the Green Lantern.
Wonder Woman will be first seen in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” which releases next year. Her solo movie is set to hit the screens on June 23, 2017.
The character will be far different from the actress’s persona. In a recent interview with Interview magazine, Gadot said, “I’m a goofy girl. I like to laugh and I like to make other people laugh.”
Furthermore, she also expressed that she is looking forward to play the female superhero. “Oh, my God, I’m so excited about this role. I feel like I’ve been given a huge opportunity to inspire people, not only women. And not because of me but because of who Wonder Woman is and what she stands for. There’s a lot of responsibility.”
