Chris Pine has closed a deal to join the DC Movie Universe as Steve Trevor in Patty Jenkins’ anticipated Wonder Woman movie, reports have confirmed this week.
Set to star opposite Gal Gadot, who will be playing the lead of Wonder Woman, these are the only two casting confirmations as of yet, and the deal also includes sequel options.
Although there are currently no plot details, in the comics Trevor is an intelligence officer who crash lands on Wonder Woman’s home of Paradise Island, and she follows him back to America.
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.”
Pine has done an excellent job of leading the Star Trek films over the past couple of years, so it’s quite exciting to see him entering a superhero franchise.
Pine will next be seen in Z for Zachariah and The Finest Hours.
Wonder Woman is set to be released on 23rd June, 2017.
