While we at first thought Chris Pine was a shoe-in for the Green Lantern role in the DC Movie universe, we now know that he will in fact play Captain Steve Trevor, the man Wonder Woman loves in the upcoming Wonder Woman movie.
The actor has now come out and talked about the role in the movie and how organic the filming is on the set with DC’s most powerful woman: “Steve Trevor is a rogue-ish, cynical realist who’s seen the awful brutish nature of modern civilization,” he 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. 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. 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.”
Sounds like it’s a real, breathing world… and we do love the sound of that!
The film also stars Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya and Lucy Davis.
