Los Angeles - Chris Pine has joined the cast of Wonder Woman.

The Star Trek actor has reportedly agreed a multi-picture deal that includes sequel options with the DC Movie Universe to portray Steve Trevor, The Wrap reports.

Plot details for the movie remain under wraps, but Pine's character is expected to be a love interest for Gal Gadot's Diana Prince/ Wonder Woman but will also be given "plenty of action".

Earlier this month, the 30-year-old lead actress admitted she expects the movie - which is due for release on 23 June, 2017 - won't please them all".

She said: "No matter what you do, you can never please them all.

"People will always have something to say because that's the way people are. And it's okay. But for me, it's my job. It's my career. It's my art."

Gal said she hopes her performance will act as a source of inspiration, but acknowledged it will be a collaborative effort.

She added: "Whatever I do, I take it very seriously and I do my research and I give it my best. I just want to be able to shine and inspire people.

"And it's not just about me. It's the script and the story and the acting. I hope people are going to love it."
