Meet the unconventional trio who were behind the creation of the world's greatest and best-known female superhero, Wonder Woman!

Check out the official full-length trailer for "Professor Marston & the Wonder Women," a 1940s biopic starring "Beauty and the Beast" star Luke Evans as Dr. William Marston, a Harvard psychologist, who under the pseudonym of Charles Moulton created the Wonder Woman comic books.

Marston, however, was not alone when it came to his superhero creation as he was strongly influenced by the two women in his life: his progressive-minded psychologist wife, Elizabeth Holloway (played by Rebecca Hall), and their domestic marital partner, Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote), who was once Marston's psychology student.

Written and directed by Angela Robinson (D.E.B.S., The L Word, True Blood), the drama reveals Marston's secret, alternative marriage -- or in today's terms as having a polyamorous relationship.

Co-starring Connie Britton, "Professor Marston & the Wonder Women" will be distributed in theaters by the production company Annapurna Pictures, opening on October 27th.

synopsis:
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.
