Chris Pine Talks Why We Need ‘Wonder Woman’
Wonder Woman is a short few days away from a full on release in theaters. Reviews have been stellar, and it’s looking like a bright light for the DCEU. There has been a lot of talk about the importance of Wonder Woman, especially in this day and age. Strong Women are becoming more important, and serve as an excellent role model.
Chris Pine, the Male lead in the film, recently spoke on the importance of Wonder Woman themes, which include compassion.
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.
He went on to compare Wonder Woman to other superheros.
The world needs all different kinds of superheroes, especially one like Wonder Woman. She teaches love and the belief in a better mankind. That’s the interesting thing. Her versus the other superheroes, she chose to fight for peace. She chose to spend her life to help others, and that’s empowering. She’s the one who took control of her life. She comes into this world and realizes that it’s hard and complicated and difficult, but worth it because she knows it’s her mission. We are seeing this for the first time on the big screen in that way.
Make sure to go check out Wonder Woman, in theaters next week!
