Professor Marston and the Wonder Women (2017) S: Evans, Hall, Heathcote, Britton





Quote:
In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMEN 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. Marstonís 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.

In Theaters October 27, 2017

Cast: Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, and Connie Britton

Very intriguing story for those who are familiar with it, but it is going to be shocking to many! This looks good!

Odd question ... was it in the works before WW became a massive success?

"Hey this Wonder Woman broad has become popular with the female audience."

"We can't have that! Time to tell the story about the MAN behind her success."
