Chris Pine in talks to play the male lead in DC's superhero flick 'Wonder Woman'May 28, 2015 NR
Actor Chris Pine is in negotiations to star in upcoming film “Wonder Woman”, which stars Gal Gadot.
If all goes well, Pine would play Gadot’s love interest Steve Trevor in the film, which will be directed by Patty Jenkins from a script by Jason Fuchs.
"Wonder Woman" will be released in 2017.
In DC Comics, Steve Trevor was an intelligence officer in the US Army during World War II whose plane crashed on Paradise Island, the isolated homeland of the Amazons. He was nursed back to health by the Amazon princess Diana, who fell in love with him and followed him when he returned to the outside world. There she became Wonder Woman (and also his co-worker, Diana Prince).
Rumours were that Scott Eastwood had landed the part, but sources say that Eastwood was given a choice to test for the Trevor role or sign on for a guaranteed supporting part in “Suicide Squad”, which he opted to take.
Pine, having starred as Captain Kirk in the last two “Star Trek” movies, is no stranger to the fan-boy world, but “Wonder Woman” will mark his first venture into cinema’s most popular genre and should lead to more opportunities in comics Justice League universe.
