From starship captain to U.S. Army officer.
According to Variety, Pine is in negotiations with Warner Bros. to play Gal Gadot’s love interest in the DC Comics film. Warner Bros. had no comment on the casting report.
In the comic books, Wonder Woman (then known as Princess Diana of Themyscira) takes care of and starts caring about Trevor after his plane crashes on Paradise Island during World War II. When he returns home, the Amazon princess follows him and eventually becomes the titular hero.
While there were rumors that Scott Eastwood was the top choice for the role, he reportedly took a guaranteed part in Suicide Squad instead of testing for the role in Wonder Woman.
As for Pine, he was rumored for the Green Lantern role in the DC cinematic universe earlier this year, but that obviously wouldn’t be possible if he signs on as Trevor.
Monster director Patty Jenkins is helming Wonder Woman (after Michelle MacLaren left the project), with Gadot starring in the DC superhero film. Wonder Woman is planned to start filming this fall, with a summer release in 2017.
