wonder woman

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice looks pretty cool, but let’s be honest: We’re waiting for Wonder Woman, and in particular, for Wonder Woman. And now Chris Pine, who’ll be starring opposite Gal Gadot in the film (which hits theaters in 2017), has dropped some major details about the film.

While Batman v Superman will be taking place in the modern-ish day, Wonder Woman will be a prequel blast from the past — namely, the World War I era. In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Pine shared, “It’s a period we don’t see often; it’s usually World War II.” (Was that Captain America shade?)

His character, Steve Trevor, is a military man who’s also the main love interest in the film, whom Pine describes as “a rogue-ish, cynical realist who’s seen the awful brutish nature of modern civilization … a worldly guy, a charming guy.” Though he doesn’t point out any specific details about the plot, he has this to say about…

1) Director Patty Jenkins: “Patty is just directing the daylights out of it. It’s shot beautifully feels so wonderfully period, but also has this wonderful pop sensibility.”

2) The costume design for the film’s extras: “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.”
