A brand new featurette for the upcoming biopic about the creator of Wonder Woman, Professor Marston & the Wonder Women, has hit the web, and it has definitely skyrocketed my excitement for this film. 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 stars Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, and Connie Britton and is directed by Angela Robinson. It hits theaters on October 13, 2017.
