The Wrap is reporting Chris Pine has closed a deal to play Steve Trevor opposite Gal Gadot in 2017's Wonder Woman and will sign a multi-picture deal that includes sequel options. The online trade adds Trevor will be not only a love interest for Gadot’s Diana Prince, but the role will be an action-oriented one as well.

If accurate, this would squash fanboy speculation that Pine - who is currently filming Star Trek Beyond - would be joining the DCCU as a member of the Green Lantern Corps in their film. 

Patty Jenkins is directing Wonder Woman from a Jason Fuchs script and the film is scheduled for a June 23, 2017 release.

Warner Bros. did not immediately respond to a request for comment, according to The Wrap.
