Chris Pine Talks Difference in Wonder Woman from Male-Lead Superhero Films

Chris Pine talks difference in Wonder Woman and male-lead superhero movies

Wonder Woman star Chris Pine stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and though the actor wouldn’t confirm whether or not the title character’s Lasso of Truth or Invisible Jet appear in the film, he had an interesting observation about the difference in the film and male-lead superhero movies.

“I think what’s really neat about it is that with all of the Thors and the Captain Kirks… I feel like with men at the helm, it’s always this kind of revenge cycle thing. It’s an eye for an eye, ‘We’re gonna go get the bad guys’ and the bad guys are defeated. What I think is really lovely having a woman at the helm of something like this is just by virtue of her being a woman there’s a great deal more compassion, love at the center of the story which for something as big as a film as this is going to be and with the kind of eyes that will watch it, I think it’s wonderful. The little bit we can do to inch this universe towards something not as aggressive and as violent as this world can be.”
