Chris Pine has signed on to play Steve Trevor in Warner Bros. Pictures’ big screen DC Universe
Despite some recent rumors that suggested he might instead be headlining Warner Bros. Pictures’ Green Lantern Corps, Star Trek‘s Chris Pine is, according to The Wrap, now fully signed on to star as Steve Trevor in director Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman.
The romantic interest of the titular Amazon (Gal Gadot), Trevor debuted in the comics right alongside Wonder Woman in 1942’s “All Star Comics” #8. Although the character has been rebooted several times over the years, the original version of Trevor was a US soldier whose plane crash lands on Paradise Island, exposing the secret civilization to the world.
Gadot is attached to headline Wonder Woman, which will be directed by Monster‘s Patty Jenkins. The character will make her first cinematic appearance, however, in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. She may even make additional appearances across DC’s new cinematic universe before her solo film sees release on June 23, 2017. It’s pretty much a guarantee, too, that Wonder Woman (and potentially Trevor as well) will play an important role in Justice League Part One, hitting theaters on November 10, 2017.
