It's going to be a big year for DC. After 2016 proved to be a bit of a disappointment, the DCEU will have a chance to recover with Wonder Woman ahead of Zack Snyder's Justice League. To say that there's quite a bit of pressure on Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins to deliver the goods with Diana Prince's first solo movie is an understatement. Not only is this the first Wonder Woman movie ever made; it's also the first mainstream, female-fronted superhero movie of the modern age. That's something that Marvel hasn't even gotten around to yet.

Despite the pressure, things seem to be looking up. Some of us here at CinemaBlend recently had the opportunity to see some great Wonder Woman footage at WonderCon 2017 in Anaheim, California, and everything that we saw has us legitimately impressed and excited about what's to come. We have many aspects of this footage to discuss, so let's get started with the endlessly fun dynamic between Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) and Wonder Woman's titular heroine.

The Dynamic Between Steve And Diana Is Fantastic

One of the biggest concerns that we have consistently felt about Wonder Woman is the possibility of Chris Pine overshadowing Gal Gadot. This concern is not without merit; Pine is a bonafide movie star who has used his endless charisma to headline numerous films over the years. After all; the guy is Captain Kirk in the Star Trek franchise. Luckily, the footage that we have seen from Wonder Woman has us sold on the idea that Steve Trevor and Wonder Woman are great partners, and that each of them brings something different and exciting to the table. Although Pine gets considerably more opportunities to crack wise as Trevor, the film still feels like it belongs to Gadot while making him feel useful. This is a Wonder Woman movie in the truest sense, and Steve Trevor is merely there to introduce her to our world.
