Wonder Woman is coming out and Chris Pine had a pretty great answer about why he thought she was an important superhero to have.
Chris Pine is starring as Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman. With a role like that, you have to be a pretty strong man. Why? Well, he has to step aside and let the woman take over. And Chris is proving just how wonderful he is.
On the blue carpet for the Wonder Woman premiere last week, Chris stopped to talk to Vanity Fair about why Diana Prince’s origin was an important superhero story to have told right now. And the best part? He said “Men are not all that smart”.
Men are not all that smart
"“We’ve seen stories told through the male prism a lot. Men are not all that smart. We tend to want to kill each other all the time, so it’s nice to finally have a fresh, female perspective with important themes. To have a female superhero story that is about love and compassion and nurturing of life than the opposite is very important. At the heart of the movie, it’s about people falling in love and being passionate and being heroic. It’s a great lesson for everyone to learn instead of other movies where shit is blowing up all the time.”"
And Chris is so right! Diana’s story is all about love and compassion and it is something that we truly missed in our superhero films. Most turned into a battle of who is the best hero and that’s not what Diana represents.
She is a hero for all women out there. She is the symbol of compassion and love and we need her most of all right now. So while Steve Trevor is an important part in Diana’s story, it’s wonderful to see Chris pointing out that she is what is truly important in this story.
Wonder Woman hits theaters this June 2. Get your tickets now because this is a movie you don’t want to miss. Trust me, Diana is too important.
