If the first set photo from Wonder Woman is any indication, Steve Trevor is a love from Diana Prince's past. And yes, part of the movie does take place during World War II. Co-star Saïd Taghmaoui has shared this sneak peak as the DC Comics movie begins shooting. And we get our first glimpse of him alongside Chris Pine in costume.
Wonder Woman is said to begin shooting in London at the end of this month, before moving on to Italy. But it looks like things are up and running this morning. It's believed that Italy will stand in for Prince's home island of Themyscira. And it's speculated that what we're seeing here is a moment captured in time from the rehearsals. Chris Pine is playing Wonder Woman's longtime love interest Steve Trevor.

Disney's The Finest Hours is the incredible true story of the U.S. Coast Guard's most dangerous sea rescue. The film is an adaptation of the best selling book by Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman. In the winter of 1952, a powerful nor'easter capsized the oil tankers, SS Pendleton and SS Fort Mercer, off the coast of Massachusetts. A group of intrepid sailors, led by Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), took a rescue boat into the storm. They faced impossible odds with temerity and skill, earning a storied place in history for their valiant efforts.
Movieweb was invited to the set of The Finest Hours in Quincy, Massachusetts last November. The production was fairly secretive at this point. Apart from the title, which was obviously correlated to the book, I had no idea what to expect on this trip. A small cohort of reporters were flown into Boston's Logan airport, then bussed forty-five minutes north to the set in Quincy. The Disney online publicist, part of a very well-liked team I might add, gave us our first details. The Finest Hours stars Chris Pine, Ben Foster, Casey Affleck, Kyle Gallner, and Eric Bana; with direction by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl, Million Dollar Arm). Our publicist extraordinaire told us that we would be observing some of the most intense scenes in the story. She wasn't kidding. What we saw that day was knock your socks off amazing, filmmaking on an epic scale.Read More

It's worth noting that there was a rumor circulating last month that Scott Eastwood is playing Steve Trevor in Suicide Squad, although his role in that superhero adventure was never confirmed.

There is still no word on who the actor is playing in Suicide Squad. No story details have been confirmed for Wonder Woman, but this project is said to be an origin story, although it isn't ultimately clear when exactly the story is set.Read More
