Professor Marston & the Wonder Women — Teaser: 'Ever Wonder?'


added: Mon, Jun 5th '17

Check out a quick 20-second teaser for the upcoming biographical drama "Professor Marston & the Wonder Women," starring "Beauty and the Beast" actor Luke Evans as Dr. William Marston, the famed Harvard psychologist who, in 1941 under the pseudonym of Charles Moulton, created the world's greatest and best-known female superhero, Wonder Woman, which was profoundly inspired by his wife, Elizabeth Holloway (portrayed by Rebecca Hall), and their domestic marital partner Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote).

The film, written and directed by Angela Robinson (D.E.B.S., The L Word, True Blood), will also explore Marston's alternative lifestyle in which he was in a polyamorous relationship with two women: his psychologist wife, Elizabeth, and his former psychology student, Olive.

Co-starring Connie Britton and JJ Feild, "Professor Marston & the Wonder Women" is produced by Annapurna Pictures, the same production company behind the award-winning films "Zero Dark Thirty," "The Master," and "American Hustle." As of yet, the film doesn't have an official release date.

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.
