The DC Cinematic Universe is kicking off in a big way this year with both BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE and SUICIDE SQUAD making their debuts, but production on the first film for one of DC's biggest heroes is still underway. Gal Gadot will be making her first appearance as Wonder Woman in the upcoming BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, but the heroic Amazon will finally be taking center stage in her own film which is under the direction of Patty Jenkins. Chris Pine, who co-stars alongside Gal Gadot as Steve Trevor, recently spoke with The Toronto Sun and spilled a few details about his character.

Steve Trevor is a rogue-ish, cynical realist who’s seen the awful brutish nature of modern civilization, he’s a worldly guy, a charming guy and it’s going to be a great, fun film.

Chris Pine also praised Patty Jenkins' direction on WONDER WOMAN as well as professing his admiration for the production design of the WWI segments.

There are some incredibly deep, interesting and morally relevant themes. Patty is just directing the daylights out of it. It’s shot beautifully, feels so wonderfully period, but also has this wonderful pop sensibility. It’s a period we don’t see often; it’s usually World War II. Our costume design is incredible. We have scenes with, like, 500 extras all in period dress. I’d never been on a film with extras casting as beautifully done as it is here. It highlights a really important point. When background casting is done well, it can make or break a scene. I’ve got people in deep background that have entire lives. It’s awesome, it’s actual make-believe land.

If you'd like to know more about WONDER WOMAN's characters and plot, make sure to check out JoBlo's exclusive on the subject but beware, there will be spoilers. WONDER WOMAN is set for a June 23, 2017 release.

Perhaps it's because I can't really spot poor acting outside of the blindly obvious but I've never had a problem with Gadot getting this role (even though Jaimie Alexander was my only consideration before the announcement). It probably has something to do with being a Fast and Furious fan and liking her role in those movies. As it is, I think she's looked great in all the promo photos thus far.

It's all on Gadot....

I really like her and her look is great for the film, but so far she hasn't done any acting that is overly impressive, and this character needs to really hit all the notes (i.e. fish out of water, proud warrior, some vulnerability, etc. . . ). If she's too stiff (like Cavill was), the film will fail.

DC really did a terrific job in casting him for this particular part. He just fits the criteria of the character and time period so well.

It's amazing that the guy who just kills it as Capt Kirk is perfect as a 1920 - 1950's era hero. He looks great in that Coast Guard movie too.

I think he looks too young in that photo...certainly too young to be the 'cynical realist who's seen the awful brutish nature of modern civilization, he's a worldly guy' they're going for. That said, I hope he does well - he definitely makes a great Kirk.

@Riz-man : That might actually work. If it's set in WWII, it's very plausible that he joined the military at 17 or 18. If he's in his mid 20's that's plenty of time to be scarred by war. It'd be something to pull off, but I think they can make it work.
