Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

Not too long ago the Dieselpunk smash hit Wonder Woman was released to Blu Ray/ DVD worldwide. With perfect timing comes the release of the movie Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.

According to the official movie website,
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.

The film is scheduled to be released on October 13, 2017. It had its world premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival in September.
