Professor Marston & the Wonder Women — Final Trailer


added: Sun, Oct 8th '17

Getting the first female superhero in comic books printed in 1942 had to take leaps and bounds on its own. Check out the final trailer for "Professor Marston & the Wonder Women," the biopic starring Luke Evans as Dr. William Marston, a Harvard psychologist who created the world's greatest and best-known female superhero, Wonder Woman!

While under the pseudonym of Charles Moulton, Dr. Marston (Evans) who was best-known as a psychologist and inventor of the lie detector, secretly created the best female-led comic book of all time because he felt there was a great educational potential in comics. Among the women who inspired Marston's superhero creation was his wife, Elizabeth Holloway (played by Rebecca Hall), and his former psychology student Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote), who was living with Marston and his wife in a polyamorous relationship.

Written and directed by Angela Robinson (D.E.B.S., The L Word, True Blood), the movie co-stars Oliver Platt as M.C. Gaines, a former elementary school principal who went on to found All-American Comics and Connie Britton as Josette Frank, an expert on children's literature and member of Gaines' advisory board.

"Professor Marston & the Wonder Women" is set to open in theaters on October 27th.

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.
