A new photo for the upcoming biopic Professor Marston & the Wonder Women has been released, showing Bella Heathcote as Olive Byrne, Luke Evans as Dr. William Marston and Rebecca Hall as Elizabeth Marston. Check it out below:
In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940’s. While Marston’s feminist superhero was criticized 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
Professor Marston & the Wonder Women will premiere at TIFF next month and is scheduled to hit theaters on October 27, 2017.
