New York Comic Con 2017: Professor Marston & The Wonder Women Gets a New Trailer

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.

The film is directed and written by Angela Robinson, produced by Amy Redford, Terry Leonard, and stars Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, and Connie Britton.

Professor Marston & The Wonder Women comes to theaters October 13, 2017.
