Professor Marston & The Wonder Women is a new drama film directed and written by Angela Robinson. The film stars Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, and Bella Heathcote.

This film examines the life of Dr. William Moulton Marston, his creation of Wonder Woman in 1941, his wife Elizabeth, and their relationship with Olive Byrne (who lived with the couple in an extended relationship). Through the pen name Charles Moulton, Marston combined his and Elizabeth and Olive’s feminist ideals to create a superhero character that young girls and boys could look up to.

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 criticised 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 behaviour research — while building a hidden life with him that rivalled the greatest of superhero disguises.

Co-starring Connie Britton and JJ Feild, the film is produced by Annapurna Pictures.
