Another Chris has officially joined the world of superhero films!
Chris will appear opposite Gal Gadot, who fans will first get to see kick ass as the iconic superheroine in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
With the Star Trek star's addition to the world of comic book movies, he joins several other notable actors named Chris, including:
- Chris Evans, who stars as Captain America and also played Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four films.
- Chris Pratt, who plays the charming Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy.
- Chris Hemsworth, who stars as the almighty Thor!
- Chris O'Donnell, who played Robin in Batman Forever and Batman and Robin.
- Christopher Reeves, who starred as Superman in the 1978 classic.
- Also The Dark Knight's Christian Bale (his friends probably call him Chris, so we're going to count it).
And those are just the heroes! Let's not forget Chris Cooper as Norman Oswald in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, or Chris Eccleston in Thor: The Dark World.
But why stop there? There are a ton of other actors named Chris who would be a perfect fit in the world of superheroes. Here are three of our top choices:
The Mindy Project star would be an awesome Harvey Dent in one of Batman's upcoming films.
The Covert Affairs star would be perfect as The Question, one of DC's more obscure-yet-amazing heroes who could totally rule in a standalone movie.
Come on! Hasn't the guy earned it yet? His whole life is comic book movies. Let's make this happen already!
We're glad to see Chris Pine jump on board the Wonder Woman movie, but the movie isn't hitting theaters until June 2017. Until then, you can get a glimpse of the Amazonian warrior woman in the trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice below.
