Chris Pine May Play Gal Gadot’s Love Interest Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman
Warner Bros. live-action Wonder Woman has few concrete details at the moment besides Gal Gadot starring and Patty Jenkins recently taking over the director chair but it seems as if they’ve decided to pursue the Steve Trevor story.
Variety is reporting:
Sources tell Variety the “Star Trek” actor is in negotiations to join Gal Gadot in the upcoming superhero pic for Warner Bros.
Pine would play Gadot’s co-star Steve Trevor, the love interest of Wonder Woman in the origin story.
Warner Bros. had no comment.
Rumors had suggested that Scott Eastwood had landed the part but insiders tell Variety that Eastwood was simply given a choice to either test for the Trevor role or sign on for a guaranteed, supporting part in “Suicide Squad,” which he opted to take.
Steve Trevor appeared alongside Wonder Woman in her first appearance back in 1941 and has been her main love interest in the comics until DC Comics decided to pair her with Superman more recently. We still don’t know the details of the film but in the comic pages Trevor was an intelligence officer for the military who crashed his plane on Wonder Woman’s home, Paradise Island. She helped heal him and eventually took a trip to the outside world for the first time with him.
What do you think? I was hoping they’d go a more diverse route for the casting but then that’s pretty much always the case…
