Professor Marston And The Wonder Women: Official Trailer Released Online


Annapurna have released the official trailer for their upcoming film Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, telling the story behind the creation of Wonder Woman.

 

The official synopsis for the film is as follows:

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 criticised 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.

 

The trailer gives us the idea that the film will primarily be focusing on the relationship between the Marston’s and Olive, though we get a few clips showing us about the controversy surrounding the Wonder Women comic at the time. The film stars Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, Frank L. Ridley, Connie Britton and Oliver Platt.

 

The film is scheduled for cinematic release on the 27th October 2017.
