Chris Pine may finally be done having to explain that he's not Chris Evans, or Chris Hemsworth, or Chris Pratt. In fact, to some fans, he is now the No. 1 Chris, dethroning the Marvel heroes after his role as Steve Trevor in "Wonder Woman."
Top Chris is its own reality series, with voters on the Internet deciding who wins. Thanks to "Wonder Woman," LaineyGossip just put Chris Pine in the lead, and Jezebel officially endorsed Pine as "President of the Chrises":
"We realize it's a controversial choice; even our own Kelly Faircloth disagreed, wrongly calling Chris Pine a 'false Kirk,' instead advocating for Chris Hemsworth. A fair choice, and Kelly is passionate about Hemsworth's Thor hair, but Hemsworth is a lesser Chris. Chris Pine has earned this endorsement, given to him solely on the strength of Wonder Woman and the last ten minutes of Hell or High Water."
Commenters agreed and disagreed, with many dissenters voicing support for Chris Evans.
In WRINKLE IN TIME, he plays a physicist, father of two and husband of Gugu Mbatha Raw. President of the Chrises. https://t.co/oItZLf5URU

Chris Pine has been working toward this moment for a long time, from "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement" in 2004 to the "Star Trek" films, his underappreciated role in "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp," the Oscar-nominated "Hell or High Water," and his hilarious recent stint hosting "Saturday Night Live."
However, the other Chrises are still putting up solid fights. Just the other day, Hemsworth won himself more points with his own "Avengers: Infinity War" scene with action figures. Evans has a strong fan base, and Captain America's political tweeting has earned him even more fans (and his dog posts earn him still more). Pratt just returned to his role as Star-Lord in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," but many Chris lists out there now have him at No. 4. Fair?
"A Wrinkle in Time" opens March 9, 2018. Hemsworth will have a chance to put Thor on top when "Thor: Ragnarok" opens later this year on November 3. Pratt has "Jurassic World 2" on June 22, 2018, after joining Hemsworth and Evans in "Avengers: Infinity War" on May 4, 2018. Meanwhile, Pine recently took some shots at "Infinity War" ... perhaps trying to finish off his competition?
