With the upcoming Batman V Superman about to hit theaters soon. There has been a great deal of excitement with DC's imminent clash with the invincible Marvel Cinematic Universe film franchise.
One major advantage that DC seems to have over its very successful rival is the fact that they have a much more prominent female superhero with her own solo movie outing. Marvel may have a roster of heroines, but none of them have played the main star in their own movies, nor are they close to the iconic status that DC's Wonder Woman has.
Chris Pine who plays Steve Trevor in the upcoming Wonder Woman film has a lot to say about the advantage of having a female protagonist in the male dominated super hero franchise films, during his interview with Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
I think what's really neat about it is that honestly, with all of the Thors and the Captain Kirks, with men at the helm, it's always this revenge cycle thing. It's an eye for an eye now. We're gonna go get the bad guys and the bad guys are defeated. What I think is really lovely having a woman at the helm of something like this is that, just by virtue of her being a woman, there's a great deal more compassion and love at the center of the story, which, for something as big as a film as this is going to be and with the kind of eyes that will watch it, I think it's wonderful the little bit we can do that to hopefully inch this universe towards something not enough as aggressive.
But when pressed on which parts of the Wonder Woman mythos would make it on the on screen version such as the invisible plane or the magic lasso, the actor was pretty mum on the details. Although he did say that, "there's all sorts of fun stuff. It takes place during World War I."
I guess we have to wait for the trailer to know more.
