Cape Town – Hot on the heels of the Marvel blockbuster comes another Wonder Woman story.
Professor Marston & the Wonder Women is the true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans) 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.
His muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston (Rebecca Hall) and their lover Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote), 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.
