Chris Pine is Excited About ‘Wonder Woman’ and So Are We

Is it 2017 yet?

Sure, we’re excited to see Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but we’re just as excited for her own movie coming in 2017.

Chris Pine spilled a few details about his coming role in the movieand spoiler alert: he’s really excited about it, too.

The highly-anticipated upcoming DC Comics/Warner Bros movie is already garnering a lot of attention from fans, and sadly, even some backlash considering she’s a female super hero who’s getting her own movie. Some have even complained that leading lady Gal Gadot’s boobs aren’t big enough to play the role. (Crazy, we know.)

Meanwhile, future co-star of the movie Mr. Pine– who will be playing love interest Steve Trevor– can’t hide his enthusiasm. “What excites me most is to work in a movie with a superhero woman,” the actor told French website Premiere. “With a woman in the lead role. I am teamed with this intelligent, beautiful and strong woman to defeat the villains and save humanity.”

It was announced that Gadot would be playing the lead role back in December of 2013, and she talked to Interview magazine about the experience. “I feel like I’ve been given a huge opportunity to inspire people, not only women. And not because of me but because of who Wonder Woman is and what she stands for. There’s a lot of responsibility. But I have the best team and the best people to work with. It’s going to be an amazing ride, knock on wood.”
