Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

Nova Exclusive! In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, PROFESSOR MARSTON AND THE WONDER WOMEN tells the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans) to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940's and the controversy the comic generated.

While Marston's feminist superhero was criticised 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 the two great loves of his life - 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.

Writer/director Angela Robinson’s PROFESSOR MARSTON AND THE WONDER WOMEN is a bold and illuminating true tale of invention, perseverance and courage against the forces of oppression.
