Chris Pine, perhaps best known for his role as Captain Kirk in the rebooted Star Trek franchise (2009-present), is set to play opposite Gal Gadot as in the upcoming DC/Warner Bros movie Wonder Woman – due for a release in 2017.
According to The Wrap, Pine has signed a multi-picture deal (that includes sequel options) to perform as Wonder Woman’s love interest Steve Trevor. While little else is known of Pine’s involvement or how influential his character will be, the news puts an end to rumours of the actor being in the upcoming “Green Lantern Corps” movie.
Wonder Woman is currently slated for a June 23rd 2017 release date and will be directed by Monster (2003) director Patty Jenkins, with Zack (Batman v Superman director) and Deborah Snyder producing the picture.
