He was nursed back to health by Diana, who falls in love with the man and follows him to the outside world upon his recovery. Soon afterwards, she takes up re identity of Diana Prince and her superheroine alter ego, Wonder Woman.
Set for release in 2017, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as the titular heroine. Patty Jenkins is directing the solo film for Warner Bros. from a script by Jason Fuchs. Charles Roven is serving as executive producer alongside Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder.
Previous rumors suggested Trevor was the role Scott Eastwood Wold be playing in David Ayer's Suicide Squad, but it looks as though this is not the case, leaving Eastwood's role in the 2016 DC Cinematic Universe entry currently unknown.
