Joining her on the mission will be Steve Trevor, played by Chris Pine, a captain from the United States Army Air Service. In an interview with CinemaBlend, Pine discussed his role and how action heroes like Indiana Jones influenced his take on the character.
Pine described how director Patty Jenkins guided his performance as Steve Trevor and which action heroes they turned to when crafting the role.
“[Patty Jenkins] was pretty clear: I had to fall in love with [Diana], crack some jokes, and be the kind of light spirit — which I had no problem doing! In the vein of the Indiana Joneses, and Michael Douglas in Romancing The Stone, the kind of rough around the edges and jaded and a realist, but trying his damnedest to be good. I love the story that she was trying to tell. So yeah, [laughs] I enjoyed it!”
