Chris Pine in talks to play Wonder Woman's love interest

05.27.2015

Who better to romance Wonder Woman than Captain Kirk? The Wrap reports that Chris Pine is in talks to play the love interest for Gal Gadot in Patty Jenkins' WONDER WOMAN. With the film slated to begin production later this year, the film needs to pull together the primary cast. Pine's casting would provide a big name to help carry the film.

While most of the news surrounding WONDER WOMAN has focused on the creative differences between former director Michelle MacLaren and Warner Bros brass, we truly do not have many details as to exactly what the film will be about. There has been quite a bit of rumor about the movie and with the studio refusing to comment on the Chris Pine news, this falls into that category as well. Pine's casting would make sense as there have been rumors that he was being considered for the role of Green Lantern. If the WONDER WOMAN casting is true, that explains his meetings with DC.

WONDER WOMAN is going to have her debut in next year's BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE and the studio is banking on her to be their gateway to the female demographic that has been yearning for a superhero movie with a woman in the lead. Marvel has yet to make any announcements about CAPTAIN MARVEL, so DC finally has an edge with this film. Here's hoping Gadot wins over those unsure about her casting as the Amazon princess when she debuts in 2016.

WONDER WOMAN is scheduled to hit theaters on June 23, 2017.

LOVE INTEREST?!

So this is exactly like that SNL sketch for Black Widows solo movie. Why is it just because we are getting a female superhero movie, there HAS to be a love interest. This movie is literally trying so hard to be anti-feminist it is killing itself in the process.

First they cast some chick who cant act and is only there for sex appeal.

Come on Man! He is tailor made for a hero role; charisma, looks, build, for him to be delegated to the damsel in distress role is weak. Give that shit to some no name because honestly who cares? People are coming for Wonder Woman. This is not the same thing like trying to reach the female demographic by casting someone like Blake Lively, men don't give a shit about the love interest we will come to see Wonder Woman kick ass in a corset, and women will show up because this IS their hero for the

This is not the same thing like trying to reach the female demographic by casting someone like Blake Lively, men don't give a shit about the love interest we will come to see Wonder Woman kick ass in a corset, and women will show up because this IS their hero for the most part. SO please give him something worthwhile. Green Latern, Hawkman, Martian Manhunter, anything but this.

Don't do it, Pine! He should be Green Lantern. Not that I know that much about comics aside from seeing the movies, but GL seems like a dream role for Pine. He's funny, charming and handsome, it's a trifecta. Being able to inject those qualities while standing beside Batman and Superman would be huge.

WTF what a waste of talent in what most likely is going to be a waste of a movie. You're going to use a guy who could be a lead in a superhero movie and toss him in as the token love interest. Chris man get a better agent/manager.

I like Pine. I really do, but aside from Kirk and his roles in Carnahan films he's been a bust imho. I say he fire his agent and flame me all you want I like Gadot less and less as WW along with the whole DCU, though Suicide Squad peaks my interest...for now

I still think he'd be great as Drake for an Uncharted movie.

Chris Pine as the token male love interest. In the movie to look pretty and be saved from the villain.

This is disappointing. Would rather have seen him be the new Hal Jordan/Green Lantern. I feel like he's too talented to join the DCU as a mere love interest.

Exactly. What a waste of talent. I hope this is a rumor and he gets the Hal Jordan gig.

Well don't count your chickens as they say, who knows if there will even be a Wonder Woman movie, well maybe one where she battles anorexia.

Yes that was a rumor and no it was never confirmed by the studio that Scott was playing Trevor. I dont blame you in thinking that cause of the amount of rumors that come out for each comic book movie is ridiculous. They still haven't officially said who Scott is playing in Suicide Squad.
