Pine Set As Wonder Woman’s Love Interest

Chris Pine has closed a deal to play Steve Trevor opposite Gal Gadot in the stand-alone “Wonder Woman” movie for Warner Bros. Pictures says The Wrap.

Gadot’s first appearance in the role of Diana Prince will take place in next year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, but Pine’s character won’t appear until the dedicated “Wonder Woman” film which Patty Jenkins is directing and which opens June 2017.

Pine joins the DC Movie Universe in a multi-picture deal that includes sequel options. It also puts to rest rumors of Pine playing the Hal Jordan incarnation of DC superhero Green Lantern.

Steve Trevor will reportedly be no mere love interest and will have plenty of action in the film which is scripted by Jason Fuchs. Pine is currently filming Justin Lin’s “Star Trek Beyond”.
