Chris Pine Discusses Steve Trevor’s Role & WWI Setting In ‘Wonder Woman’

Following her appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this March, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman will once again return in her standalone movie on June 23, 2017. Patty Jenkins and the rest of the cast and crew of the project are currently hard at working filming in England, and as per usual, plot details about the movie are tightly kept under wraps.

However, this time, we don’t even know which DC characters will appear alongside the superheroine in the movie, except for her love interest, Steve Trevor. It has been rumored that we’ll see two incarnations of the character, one during World War I and one during present day. Other than that, we don’t really know much about his role, but thankfully, we now some new details.

In a recent interview with Toronto Sun, Chris Pine, who plays the character, opened up about his role in the highly anticipated movie. Here’s what he had to say:

Steve Trevor is a rogue-ish, cynical realist who’s seen the awful brutish nature of modern civilization, he’s a worldly guy, a charming guy and it’s going to be a great, fun film. There are some incredibly deep, interesting and morally relevant themes.

The actor then went on to offer praise for the director and talk a bit about the World War I setting and some of the sets and costumes that were created for the movie:

Patty is just directing the daylights out of it. It’s shot beautifully feels so wonderfully period, but also has this wonderful pop sensibility. It’s a period we don’t see often; it’s usually World War II. Our costume design is incredible. We have scenes with, like, 500 extras all in period dress. I’d never been on a film with extras casting as beautifully done as it is here. It highlights a really important point. When background casting is done well, it can make or break a scene. I’ve got people in deep background that have entire lives. It’s awesome, it’s actual make-believe land.
