Chris Pine is currently promoting Disney’s upcoming film The Finest Hours and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel live on Monday night to talk about the film, but he also answered some questions about Wonder Woman and talked more about his role as Steve Trevor in the film. Check the video out below.
“It takes place in World War I. I think what’s really neat about it, is that with all of the Thors and Captain Kirks – I feel like with men at the helm, it’s always a revenge cycle thing. It’s an eye for an eye, ‘we’re going to get the bad guys’ and then the bad guys are defeated,” he said explaining the differences with this film. “What I think is really lovely, with having a woman at the helm of this, there’s a great deal more compassion and love at the center of the story, which for something as big as a film that this is going to be, and the eyes that will watch it, I think it’s a wonderful – the little bit we can do to hopefully inch this universe toward not being as aggressive and violent.”
Directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Lucy Davis, Danny Huston, Saïd Taghmaoui, David Thewlis, and Robin Wright, Wonder Woman lands in UK cinemas on June 23rd, 2017.
