First trailer for Professor Marston & the Wonder Women (2017) dir. Angela Robinson.
Professor Marston details the life of Dr. William Moulton Marston, Harvard psychologist and inventor who created Wonder Woman in 1941; his wife, fellow psychologist and inventor Elizabeth; and their polyamorous relationship with Olive Byrne, a former student of Marston’s and an academic in her own right.
Their relationship proved enduring. Marston created DC’s iconic Amazonian princess with significant input from Elizabeth having been inspired to do so by Olive – Marston, like Wonder Woman, was profoundly influenced by the feminist ideals espoused by Elizabeth and Olive. After his death in 1947, Elizabeth and Olive raised their children by Marston together and remained a couple until Olive’s death in 1988. The film will explore how Marston dealt with the controversy surrounding his creation — which homophobic moral guardians charged would turn young girls into lesbians — while he and his partners navigated and concealed a romantic and family life that, if exposed, could have destroyed them all.

“Bill. We love you, truly. So much. But nobody, and I say this with all the compassion and truth in my heart — nobody will ever publish this.” └ Professor Marston & the Wonder Women, dir. Angela Robinson (2017)

YOU GUYS THEY ARE FINALLY GONNA TELL THE STORY OF THE GUY WHO CREATED WONDER WOMAN AND THE TWO WOMEN WHO INSPIRED THE CHARACTER: HIS WIFE AND THEIR MUTUAL LOVER (AKA A POLYAMOROUS RELATIONSHIP WITH TWO KICKASS BI WOMEN)!!!
“With Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman soaring to a $100.5 million dollar box office debut this weekend awash in positive reviews, it’s likely many viewers are walking out of the movie theater with a newfound appreciation for the Amazing Amazon. Although she’s been around nearly as long as other big-name DC icons like Batman and Superman, Wonder Woman isn’t always given the attention and respect she deserves. The same goes for her creator, William Moulton Marston. But just as Wonder Woman herself is having her day in the sun, so too will her creator in the new biopic Professor Marston & the Wonder Women, which just released its first teaser.
Directed by Angela Robinson, Professor Marston & the Wonder Women stars Luke Evans as Marston, the Harvard psychologist who channeled his interests in feminism, pacifism, bondage, lie detection, and more into creating Wonder Woman. Rebecca Hall and Bella Heathcoate also star as Elizabeth Marston and the couple’s mutual lover, Olive Byrne, respectively — the two women who served as inspirations for Diana. In the brief new teaser, Marston tells someone off-screen that “I created her, she’s a smash success because of me,” only for a beautiful woman (presumably Heathcoate’s Olive) to appear triumphantly on screen. The relationship between a cultural feminist icon and her male creator will likely form one of the film’s main tensions.”
