Professor Marston & The Wonder Woman Final Trailer Shows Wonder Woman’s Controversial Origins

The origins of Wonder Woman were more than a little bit controversial at the time. Not only was the character seen as a celebration of the more sadistic and fetishistic aspects of women, but she was also created by a man of many contradictions.

William Moulton Marston invented the lie detector, was a Harvard psychologist, was a feminist, and yet ironically enough, was also a man known for his overbearing nature and polygamist ways. It’s a captivating tale of sexual intrigue that was chronicled in the book The Secret History of Wonder Woman, and it’s that story that makes its way to the big screen in Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.

Check out the latest trailer above and the synopsis below for Professor Marston and the Wonder Women:

“In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMEN 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.”

Without a doubt, just a few months from the release of Wonder Woman and less than a month before the release of Justice League, Annapurna was smart to release the film this coming month.

Professor Marston & the Wonder Women hits theaters on October 27, 2017.
