Chris Pine is in talks for a lead part in Wonder Woman, Variety reports. He would play the heroine's favorite guy with two first names, Steve Trevor, alongside Gal Gadot. In the source material, Steve was portrayed as a U.S. Army officer who got kidnapped all the time and kind of pined (sorry, Chris) fell for Wonder Woman (but in very noncommittal fashion). Scott Eastwood was also reportedly interested in the part but has opted to take a guaranteed supporting role in Suicide Squad instead. Patty Jenkins is set to direct Wonder Woman, and the movie — with or without Pine, but hopefully with, for the sake of bad marketing puns — is due out June 23, 2017.
