The Trailer For ‘Professor Marston & The Wonder Women’ Goes Into Wonder Woman’s Complicated Creation

We were given a brief tease back when Wonder Woman hit theaters, but we now finally have a real trailer for the upcoming biopic about her creation — Professor Marston & The Wonder Women. The film is about William Moulton Marston, his wife Elizabeth, and Olive Byrne (who was in a polyamorous relationship with the couple). The film stars Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, and Connie Britton.

Honestly, it’s an incredibly interesting story, and seeing it translated well to film is an exciting prospect. Polyamory isn’t especially accepted in today’s society, let alone in the 1940’s. It’s a story I don’t think a lot of people outside comics historians are aware of, and it deserves to be told.

Professor Marston & The Wonder Women comes out October 27, 2017.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
