This summer Wonder Woman will finally headline her own feature film that chronicles her adventures before the events of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. In an interview with CinemaBlend at CinemaCon, director Patty Jenkins and star Chris Pine discussed their take on Steve Trevor and his role in the film.
Pine discussed his approach to the character, explaining he followed the lead of director Patty Jenkins.
“Steve is a realist. He’s seen the war. He’s a man that knows secrets. He’s a spy. But really, my job is, I had to fall in love with Gal Gadot, make some jokes, jump over some stuff, breathe heavily…”
Jenkins described Pine as the ideal actor to play the role of Steve Trevor.
“He didn’t know it, but he actually is Steve Trevor. He’s like the dream Steve Trevor, he’s also one of the great actors of all time, so it was not hard for him.”
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui.
Wonder Woman will be released in theaters on June 2, 2017.
