Annapurna Pictures has released a clip from Professor Marston & the Wonder Women. The film examines the life of Dr. William Moulton Marston and how he created Wonder Woman in 1941.
In the clip, Dr. Marston is asked ‘Why is Wonder Woman an Amazon?’. To which he gives an amazing answer. Check it out below.
Synopsis: 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 criticized 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 behavior research — while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.
The film stars Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Frank L. Ridley, Connie Britton, Oliver Platt, and Bella Heathcote. It was written and directed by Angela Robinson.
Professor Marston & the Wonder Women will open in theaters on October 13th, 2017.
