Professor Marston & The Wonder Women – Trailer

What?! I didn’t even know that a movie based on the creator of Wonder Woman was being made. This is cool. I’m sure there will be comic book historians that disagree with this movie, and others that do not like the concept, but still I think this is awesome. I am by lacking a lot of history of Wonder Woman’s creation. The little I know about Dr. William Marston is that he helped create the lie detector test and was also in a relationship with his wife and former student. They lived together with their combined children together. Luke Evans plays Marston with Rebecca Hall as his wife.

The synopsis for the movie reads:

The unconventional life of Dr. William Marston, the Harvard psychologist and inventor who helped invent the modern lie detector test and created Wonder Woman in 1941. Marston was in a polyamorous relationship with his wife Elizabeth, a psychologist and inventor in her own right, and Olive Byrne, a former student who became an academic. This relationship was key to the creation of Wonder Woman, as Elizabeth and Olive’s feminist ideals were ingrained in the character from her creation. Marston died of skin cancer in 1947, but Elizabeth and Olive remained a couple and raised their and Marston’s children together. The film is said to focus on how Marston dealt with the controversy surrounding Wonder Woman’s creation.

This movie is set to release sometime in 2017.

  1. I heard of the movie. Now that I saw the trailer I want to see this. His views on loving submission were very progressive for the time. His Wonder Woman was filled with bondage and submission. Pretty interesting and thought-provoking stuff for a comic book. It will be interesting to see people’s opinions of this movie.
