A superhero origin tale unlike any other, Professor Marston & The Wonder Women is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist and inventor, Dr William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans), to create the iconic feminist superhero Wonder Woman. While Marston’s groundbreaking character was pilloried by censors for its sexual frankness, he was living a secret life that was equally controversial. Marston’s inspiration for Wonder Woman was his wife Elizabeth Holloway Marston (Rebecca Hall) and their mutual lover Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote), self-empowered women who defied social conventions while they helped Marston advance his prescient behavioural research.
