It was rumored that the Wonder Woman negotiations were a "smokescreen," and he was really in talks for Green Lantern Corps., but that proved to be untrue.

Watch the new trailer for the heroic action-thriller The Finest Hours, the extraordinary true story of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history. Presented in Digital 3D and IMAX 3D, the film transports audiences to the heart of the action, creating a fully-immersive cinematic experience on an epic scale. Directed by Craig Gillespie, The Finest Hours features an all-star ensemble cast led by Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and Eric Bana.
A heroic action-thriller, The Finest Hours takes place on February 18, 1952, when a massive nor'easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path, including the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, which was literally ripped in half, trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly-sinking stern. As the senior officer on board, first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) soon realizes it is up to him to take charge of the frightened crew and inspire the men to set aside their differences and work together to ride out one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast. Meanwhile, as word of the disaster reaches the U.S. Coast Guard station in Chatham, Massachusetts, Warrant Officer Daniel Cluff (Eric Bana) orders a daring operation to rescue the stranded men.Read More
Chris Pine has entered negotiations with Warner Bros. to play Steve Trevor in the studio's stand alone Wonder Woman adventure. Gal Gadot will make her debut as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will reportedly also introduce the rest of the Justice League, before the Wonder Woman movie hits theaters June 23, 2017. Warner Bros. would not comment on the casting news at this time.
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. As it turns out, Scott Eastwood was given the choice to either test for the role of Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman, or take the guaranteed supporting role in Suicide Squad, which he ultimately chose. 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
It has long been rumored that, at the end of Warner Bros. and DC Comics' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Justice League will be assembled, comprised of Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa). Naturally, this will lead into Justice League Part 1 in 2017 and Justice League Part 2 in 2019, but there is still one member of the team who has yet to be cast, Green Lantern. We still don't even know if Warner Bros. plans on using the Hal Jordan version of Green Lantern or John Stewart at this time, but, if a new rumor turns out to be true, Chris Pine may be playing Hal Jordan.
Latino Review's El Mayimbe reveals that Chris Pine is the name he "keeps hearing & floating around," but he also stresses that it's only an unconfirmed rumor. While Green Lantern isn't expected to pop up in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the character will still need to be cast fairly soon, since production will likely begin on Justice League Part 1 sometime next year. Ironically, Chris Pine was actually in the running to play Hal Jordan in Warner Bros.' 2011 version of Green Lantern, a role that ultimately went to Ryan Reynolds.Read More
