From Captain Kirk to superheros, Chris Pine is doing mighty fine!
While he's already part of one MASSIVE franchise, he's on to the next one! According to reports, that is in talks with Warner Brothers Pictures to join the cast of their upcoming superhero flick, Wonder Woman! starring Gal Gadot as the titular hero!

With everyone on the hype train for next year's Batman vs Superman — which Gadot's Wonder Woman will make a cameo in — and Suicide Squad, there hasn't been a ton of news coming out about Wonder Woman. Though, a couple of months back they lost their director, Michelle MacLaren and replaced her with Patty Jenkins but the news of Pine joining is the first in a positive direction!
But who's he playing? None other than Wonder Woman's love interest Steve Trevor of course! For a superhero that strong, powerful, and independent, only a
stud man like Pine would seem fitted!
In the comics, Trevor is an officer in the United States Army during WWII and his plane crashes on Paradise Island, the homeland of the Amazons. While there, the Amazon princess Diana (Wonder Woman) nurses him back to health and falls in love with him. She then follows him back to the outside world where she becomes the hero we know her as, Wonder Woman! You know, that old classic love story…
Are you excited for Pine joining Wonder Woman as her main man? Hopefully we'll hear official word soon but regardless you'll have to wait until June 23rd, 2017 for Wonder Woman to hit screens!
