The upcoming Wonder Woman film is currently in production and I’m grasping at any information I can get from it, especially as the first female-led superhero film.
In describing the love interest to Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, he says:
“Steve Trevor is a rogue-ish, cynical realist who’s seen the awful brutish nature of modern civilization. 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.”
He also talked about the actual production of the film and described Patty Jenkins as “directing the daylights out of it,” especially in regards to the World War I setting:
“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.”
I can definitely get on board with all of that. World War I is a fascinating setting, and throwing an Amazon Princess into the mix is sure to make it even more interesting.
Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya, and Lucy Davis. It’s set to arrive on June 23, 2017.
What do you think of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor? Are you looking forward to this film and its setting?
