We can finally put some rumors to rest now that the news has broken that Chris Pine has signed on to play Steve Trevor, the love interest of Wonder Woman’s alter ego, Diane Prince, in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman. Pine was definitely circling the DC cinematic universe, and it really looked like he was considering the Green Lantern movie. Some sources even thought he’d be announced as Hal Jordan at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
Yet the Wonder Woman rumors persisted, and now that they’ve been confirmed, it will be exciting to see Pine take on another hot property. As long as he keeps doing fun, weird stuff like Wet Hot American Summer, Pine showing up in big tentpole movies is a-ok for this Pine-nut.
