According to The Wrap, Chris Pine has joined the Warner Bros./DC Wonder Woman standalone movie, as the love interest of star Gal Godat. Wonder Woman will make her DC universe appearance in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice film, and have a part in the Justice League series as well. Expect to see Pine’s Steve Trevor by her side.

The movie, directed by Patty Jenkins, has been kept under wraps in terms of plot but we can assume there will be a retelling of Wonder Woman’s back story. Amazon Princess Diana, who goes into the moral realm to help mankind, hasn’t been dusted off since the 70’s when Lynda Carter did her famous spin on television, so there’s plenty of room for expanding the origin story.

Pine will star in a few more Star Trek movies in addition to his DC universe work, making him a franchise star for the immediate future.
