For quite while we’ve known Chris Pine was in talks with Warner Bros. for joining the Gal Gadot led Wonder Woman solo film. While rumors has persisted recently that he was actually up for the role of Hal Jordan in the film, according to The Wrap he has officially joined the film as Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman’s romantic interest.
While he might not be taking to space, it does sound like it will be a big role. The report states he has been signed on for multiple films. In the comics he and Diana eventually broke up, but he was also the government’s liaison with the Justice League which should give him plenty to do.
Wonder Woman is set to hit theaters on June 23rd, 2017.
