Chris Pine talks ‘Wonder Woman’ and World War I setting

Star Trek star Chris Pine has confirmed what fans may have previously believed: the Wonder Woman standalone film will be set during World War I, at least in part.

This isn’t surprising news, as previously released set photos and videos only fueled the rumor. Now Pine, who plays Steve Trevor in the film, has settled the speculation, and revealed more about his character.

In an interview with the Toronto Sun promoting his upcoming role in Disney’s Coast Guard action film The Finest Hours, Pine offered some insight into Wonder Woman’s first feature.

“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.”

Gal Gadot as WOnder WOman batman-v-supermanPine offered some insight into his character Steve Trevor, who he describes as “worldly” and “charming”: “Steve Trevor is a roguish, cynical realist who’s seen the awful brutish nature of modern civilization.”

As for the Wonder Woman film itself, Pine says: “it’s going to be a great, fun film. There are some incredibly deep, interesting and morally relevant themes. Patty [Jenkins] is just directing the daylights out of it. It’s shot beautifully feels so wonderfully period, but also has this wonderful pop sensibility.”

The film stars Gal Gadot with Robin Wright, Lucy Davis,David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Danny Huston and Saïd Taghmaoui.

Wonder Woman is scheduled to open June 23, 2017. UPDATE: Now opening on June 2, 2017
