Annapurna Pictures has debuted the first full trailer for Angela Robinson’s “Professor Marston & The Wonder Women,” the upcoming feature about the creation of the iconic comics character Wonder Woman.
Luke Evans plays 1940s Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston, the inventor of the lie detector and creator of the character who defends his feminist superhero against charges of ‘sexual perversity’.
At the same time, he maintained a secret – his inspiration was the two women with whom he was in a polyamorous relationship with – his wife Elizabeth Marston (Rebecca Hall) and their lover Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote).
Both were empowered women in the field of psychology who defied convention and built a secret life together with Marston. Connie Britton and Oliver Platt also star.
“Professor Marston & The Wonder Women” opens on October 27th.
