Apart from a certain Mr Cameron critically Wonder Women was a success, giving the DC Cinematic Universe the kick up the back it was needing. The Amazonian Warrior princess is that role model type character for any young girls (and boys)looking for one in an industry that’s been male-dominated. That’s all changed now, today there is many fantastic artists and writers in the industry now.
William Marston created Wonder Woman in 1940. A conservative era but when you look at his creation and Marston’s own life you wouldn’t think he was the creator. A married man who openly had his own mistress the women who inspired Diana Prince. In Professor Marston & The Wonder Women looks at the man and the women who inspired his creation and today we have a new clip from the movie.
Entitled “No One Will Publish This” we see Marston (Luke Evans) and his wife Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall) along with his girlfriend Olive (Bella Heathcote). Explaining the concept of the character already playing down the idea, you wonder if they had a time machine what would they say now?!
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, 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 and their mutual lover Olive Byrne, self-empowered women who defied social conventions while they helped Marston advance his prescient behavioural research.
Professor Marston & The Wonder Women will be released in the UK and Ireland from 10th November. The movie also stars Connie Britton and Oliver Platt.
