While promoting his latest movie with the Toronto Sun, The Finest Hours, Chris Pine also talked about Wonder Woman in which he plays Captain Steve Trevor.
“Steve Trevor is a rogue-ish, cynical realist who’s seen the awful brutish nature of modern civilization,” Pine said. “He’s a worldly guy, a charming guy and it’s going to be a great, fun film. There are some incredibly deep, interesting and morally relevant themes.”
Pine also confirmed Wonder Woman is set in World War I.
“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.”
Wonder Woman has a June 23, 2017 release date starring Gal Gadot; The Finest Hours hits January 29th.
