Pine is in talks to play Steve Trevor opposite Gal Gadot in the 2017 movie from DC's expanded film universe, according to Variety.
Steve Trevor is a dashing intelligence agent who has long been a love interest for the Amazonian warrior Diana Prince in DC's range of comics.
Pine - who plays Captain James Tiberius Kirk in the Star Trek films - apparently emerged as the favourite to play Trevor after impressing Warner Bros and his potential co-star Gadot in a recent meeting.

What we've seen so far
The movie has attracted a lot of attention as images of the Suicide Squad's members in costume began to roll out.
Leto showed off his new muscles, which everyone seemed to be fine with.
What fans have been less keen on is the photo of his tattooed and be-grilled Joker.
Despite suggestions that this was a concept that wouldn't show up in the film itself, shots from the set have dashed these hopes to pieces. »
The One Tree Hill alum revealed via WhoSay that the midseason series is seeking “a different type” to play her character, Zoe.
Speculation has swirled for weeks over just who will become Marvel's latest incarnation of Spider-Man, and it seems that the studio has finally decided on its leading (young) man.
According to the Latino Review, Asa Butterfield has snagged the part, and is currently in negotiations with the comics powerhouse. An official announcement is expected soon, the site reports.
The 18-year-old Butterfield had been one of the frontrunners for a while now, among a pack of young actors vying for the role that included Nat Wolff ("The Fault in Our Stars"), Tom Holland ("In The Heart of The Sea"), Timothee Chalamet ("Interstellar"), and Liam James ("The Killing"). Marvel and Sony, who are teaming up for the flick, reportedly want to focus on Peter Parker at a younger age than any of the previous "Spider-Man" films, spending more time with the hero as he navigates high school, hence the search for an »

The folks at Latino-Review.com are reporting Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game) has been cast as the new Spider-Man for Sony Pictures and will have his first appearance as the webslinger in next year's Captain America: Civil War followed by a new Spider-Man feature in July 2017. Butterfield was reported as the front-runner back at the end of April and other than a brief report saying Tom Holland ("Wolf Hall," The Impossible) was still in the mix that never changed. Word is the new Spider-Man will keep Peter Parker a lot younger, a lot longer, focusing on his high school years and word is they plan to go with a tone matching that of a John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off). Other names that were once on the short list of contenders for the Spidey role included Nat Wolff (Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars), Timothee Chalamet »

Signed, sealed, delivered? Well, not quite, but it looks like Marvel has locked up the next face of Spider-Man, as the studio sorta reboots the character with the permission of Sony. Umberto Gonzalez reports that Asa Butterfield has beat out a field of contenders including Nat Wolff ("Paper Towns," "The Fault In Our Stars"), Tom Holland ("The Impossible," "In The Heart Of The Sea"), Timothee Chalamet ("Interstellar," "The Adderall Diaries"), and Liam James ("The Killing") to land the gig. Of course, nothing is official from Marvel, but perhaps we'll know soon as "Captain America: Civil War" is currently filming and Spidey will be swinging into action in some capacity in that movie.

It's Upfronts Week, which means networks are unveiling teasers and trailers for their new 2015–16 TV shows. Here, an extremely preliminary set of immediate reactions to ABC's new series. The Catch It's Shondaland's newest entry. Mireille Enos (The Killing) is a fancy-schmancy fraud investigator — who herself has just been defrauded by her fiancé. First impressions: This seems like a perfect companion piece for How to Get Away With Murder (The Catch airs during Tgit, while Htgawm is off season), a slightly glam drama with a dark side. I had many, many beefs with The Killing, but Enos's performance was top-notch, so go forth and be mysterious, ma'am. I would prefer if the promo said, "who is conning whom," but I am learning to live with pain. Dr. Ken It's a multi-camera family sitcom based on Ken Jeong — an actual doctor himself! First impressions: I would like better jokes, please. »

AMC's upcoming comic book TV series Preacher has added two more cast members, Jamie Anne Allman and Derek Wilson, as brand new characters who didn't appear in the original comic books. Jamie Anne Allman is playing Betsy Schenck, a timid wife who appears to be in an abusive relationship with her husband, Donny (Derek Wilson). Although, when Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) checks in on her, she tells a different story.
Derek Wilson's Donny Schenck is a Civil War reenactor and abusive husband who gets into several altercations with Custer, but still makes it to church every Sunday. Both actors will have recurring roles in the AMC series, but it isn't known how many episodes they have signed on for. Preacher is based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's 1990s comic book series, which follows Jesse Custer, a small-town Texas preacher, who ends up merging with a heavenly entity »
Deadline report that Jamie Anne Allman (The Killing) and Derek Wilson (Rectify) have joined the cast of AMC's small screen take on Preacher as Betsy and Donny Schenck -- two original creations just for the show. Betsy is described as “a meek wife who appears to suffer beatings by the hand of her husband, Donny,” while Donny is a “Civil War re-enactor and abusive thug who gets into altercations with Jesse Custer but nevertheless shows up to church on Sundays.” We've heard that this adaptation is going to differ significantly from the comic in that Jesse Custer will be spending a lot more time as a Preacher in Anville before setting out on his mission, and this would seem to confirm it as Wilson and Allman are down as series regulars -- and it's highly unlikely they'll be hitting the road with Jesse and his motley crew! They join Dominic Cooper »
The story centers on Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a creature that has escaped from heaven and develops the ability to make anyone do anything he says.

Helix will not live to see a third season. Syfy has opted to cancel the drama after two seasons, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

See more Broadcast TV's Returning Shows 2015-16 The drama revolved around Centers for Disease Control pathologist Dr. Alan Farragut (The Killing's Campbell) and his estranged ex-wife, Dr. Julia Walker (Kyra Zagorsky), after they're sent to the Arctic to investigate a mysterious disease outbreak.

I saw Avengers: Age of Ultron last night and while I'm not necessarily the most comic book savvy individual, it seems director Joss Whedon wasn't lying when he said there weren't too many Easter Eggs in the movie. At least there weren't any that I really noticed, though these films still can't really get by telling just one story without alluding to a darker, more sinister plan afoot in future films and such will be the cast in Captain America: Civil War, wherein a brand new, non-Andrew Garfield Spider-Man will have a cameo appearance and Marvel is looking to fill those shoes soon as the actor taking over the role is expected on set in June. Last we heard, Nat Wolff (Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars), Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game), Tom Holland ("Wolf Hall," The Impossible), Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar) and Liam James (The Way, Way Back, »

Dax Phelan, veteran screenwriter and producer based in Los Angeles got the Hong Kong bug on a writing research trip to the city in 2005. By his own tongue-in-cheek admission, it had become somewhat tedious being handsomely paid for writing screenplays that rarely if ever get made. Citing inspiration by such auteurs as Lodge Kerrigan (The Killing TV series, Keane) and the Dardenne brothers (Two Days, One Night) Phelan sensed that Hong Kong could be fertile ground for a psychological thriller that would be his directorial debut. He penned Jasmine based on a story that he had co-written with Jason Tobin.While Hong Kong has a truly enormous vault of thrillers with the revenge theme, it begs pointing out that Jasmine is like none of them...
