When you think of the Marvel and DC superhero canons, strong female leads don't usually come to mind. Sure, there's the token hot scientist who also knows how to wield a gun, but the main roles for women are typically support systems for their male counterparts. (Take Thor and Dr. Jane Foster, for example.)
These films tend to be boy's clubs filled with heroes whose names literally end in "man," which is why we're so excited about Wonder Woman. The Gal Gadot-fronted action film will hopefully go a long way in redefining some tropes of the genre, in part thanks to Chris Pine taking on the role of damsel in distress.
Chris stars as Wonder Woman's love interest, Steve Trevor, and he's super excited about the role reversal. "It'll be a f—king blast," he told Total Film (opens in new tab). "I couldn't be happier to be supporting Gal in what's going to be the first female-driven superhero film."
But wait, Chris has more feminist-approved musings for you: "I think in the world today we've had plenty enough of male-driven everything," he said, melting our hearts in the process. "It's finally time to see how wonderful the world can be with beautiful, strong intelligent women kicking some major ass."
Yep. Sounds good.
Expect Wonder Woman to hit theaters on June 23, 2017.
