Wonder Woman Actor Refuses To Do More Superhero Movies?!

MOVIE NEWS – One of the Wonder Woman actors swears that he will not return in any DC or Marvel production…



Wonder Woman actor Chris Pine recently hinted that he won’t be returning to DC and Marvel. He indicated that he thought the time for Steve Trevor’s role was over.

Pine is perhaps best known for his role as Captain Kirk in JJ Abrams’ Star Trek, and made his DC debut in 2017 as Steve Trevor opposite Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman.

Next year at Marvel, in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, he voiced a version of Peter Parker. She then jumped back to DC in Wonder Woman 1984. When the busy actor didn’t return to Marvel’s Spider-Verse sequel, instead opting for big-name roles outside of the comic book world, there were speculations that Pine might be done with superheroes for good.

His recent interview with ComicBook seemingly confirmed this speculation. When asked if he would return to the DCEU or the MCU, Pine replied succinctly, “No.” Pine didn’t want to dwell on the subject. He was confident in his decision to distance himself from franchises. During the interview, Pine focused on promoting Wish, the upcoming animated film from the Oscar-winning director of Frozen and Frozen 2.

Pine’s firm, dismissive response drew mixed reactions from fans. Some have expressed their respect for her determination to take on more challenging roles. Like a role in Olivia Wilde’s controversial Don’t Worry Darling.

Meanwhile, others have criticized his seemingly sudden rejection of anything Marvel or DC, questioning his recent blockbuster roles like Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves and wondering why he drew the line in the sand.

It is currently unclear why Pine no longer wants to be associated with comic book companies. However, it may be because blockbuster trends are shifting away from superhero movies. Although they dominated the industry for years, James Gunn’s new ten-year plan for DC and Marvel studio’s efforts to boost declining box office numbers both indicate that the tide has turned. This isn’t the first time a famous actor has turned down a superhero role this year. Recently, Euphoria’s Jacob Elordi turned down an audition for the role of Superman. Leonardo DiCaprio was even quoted as advising Timothée Chalamet: “No hard drugs and no superhero movies.”

Given the recent release of Dungeons and Dragons and his continued press tour for Wish, it’s clear that Pine isn’t going anywhere. Some of the Star Trek actor’s fans will obviously still be bitter about his decision. But it’s important to remember that movies are at their best when the actors are passionate about their roles. If Pine is no longer interested in the DCEU or the MCU, they might be better off without him.
