Plus, he reveals what would happen if Captain Kirk tried to hit on Wonder Woman…
If you had told me that watching Chris Pine improvise while trying on 80’s clothing in Wonder Woman 1984 would be one of my favorite scenes in the anticipated DC sequel, I’d never have believed you. But in a film filled with huge action and dramatic stakes, Pine delivers some welcome levity that showcases his comedic skills.
Shortly after seeing the movie, I got to speak with Chris Pine about returning as Steve Trevor. During the short but fun interview, Pine talks about what would happen if Captain Kirk tried to hit on Wonder Woman in an alternate universe, if he’s asked Patty Jenkins’ about getting a role in her upcoming Star Wars movie Rogue Squadron, and what it was like filming the clothing scene and if he thought it would turn out so great.
As all of you know, Wonder Woman 1984 finds Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman living in 1984 and squaring off against Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal), a media businessman and TV infomercial celebrity. He’s not the only villain in the film, however, as Kristen Wiig fills the role of Barbara Ann Minerva, a.k.a Cheetah. In addition, Pine is somehow back as Steve Trevor…
Check out what Chris Pine had to say below. Further down the page is exactly what we talked about and the official synopsis.
- Did he ask Patty Jenkins’ about getting a role in her upcoming Star Wars movie Rogue Squadron?
- If Captain Kirk ran into Wonder Woman in some alternate universe would she give him the time of day?
- Did he ever think his character trying on clothing would be one of the best scenes in a big budget superhero movie?
