WATCH THE FIRST TRAILER FOR PROFESSOR MARSTON AND THE WONDER WOMEN,
THE TRUE STORY OF THE CREATOR OF WONDER WOMAN AND THE WOMEN WHO INSPIRED HIM
In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of psychologist William Moulton Marston, the polyamorous relationship between his wife and his mistress, the creation of his beloved comic book character “Wonder Woman”, and the controversy the comic generated.
While Marston’s feminist superhero was criticised by censors for her ‘sexual perversity’, he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston’s muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research — while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.
Starring Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcoate, Connie Britton & Oliver Platt.
Directed by Angela Robinson.
