Chris Pine didn’t read Wonder Woman comics to prepare for the movie

While some actors like Joe Manganiello will read “almost all” comic books based on their character, Wonder Woman star Chris Pine took the opposite approach.

“I never read the comic book, I read the script and took my cue from my director. That’s how I go about all of these,” Pine told reporters at CinemaCon last week.

Pine didn’t think he had a tough job to do with his portrayal of Steve Trevor. “But really, my job was I had to fall in love with Gal Gadot, make some jokes, jump over some stuff, breath heavily,” he explained.
