Chris Pine will now join Gal Gadot in director Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman. Pine will star as Steve Trevor, Princess Diana of Themyscira’s love interest in the film. Before the San Diego Comic Con there were rumours that Pine was circling the role of Hal Jordan in a reboot of Warner Bros’ The Green Lantern, but it looks like the Star Trek actor opted for an integral role in the first female superhero of this modern age.
The Wrap reports that ‘Steve Trevor will be no mere love interest for Gadot’s Diana Prince, as there will be plenty of action to keep him busy’. The site also states that Pine has signed a ‘multi-picture deal’ to play the character. It’s a brave move for Pine, who surely could have had a lead role in his own superhero franchise.
Gal Gadot makes her debut as Wonder Woman in the forthcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which opens in March 2016.
Wonder Woman shoots soon in the UK for a June 23, 2017 release.
