Back in May Chris Pine signed on to play an important role in Warner/DC’s planned standalone Wonder Woman movie, and now he’s on the set all ready to be Steve Trevor.
An image of him in costume for the role has popped up on Twitter, showing that as has been speculated, the movie will definitely be set in the past (some had wondered if it would be brought to the present day due to Wonder Woman’s appearance in next year’s Batman vs Superman). That said, rumours suggest the second half of the film may move to the present day, although it’s not known if some sort of time travel device will allow Pine’s character to come along for the ride.
In the comics, Steve Trevor crash lands on the Amazons’ home island of Paradise during World War II. Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) falls for him after she nurses him back to health, and then when he returns to America she follows him – becoming Diana Prince, who in true comic fashion, Steve doesn’t realise is the same person as the hero, Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman is due out June 2017.
