While it did screen before some Wonder Woman showings this weekend Annapurna Pictures has officially released a teaser trailer for the upcoming biopic Professor Marston & The Wonder Women. The movie will follow the story of Dr. William Moulton Marston and the creation of the iconic character of Wonder Woman. The teaser doesn't show much, just some dialogue over a black screen with one image at the end. The dialogue is lifted from a viral site that appeared online last week.
The movie will star Luke Evans as Professor Masrston, Rebecca Hall as Marston's wife Elizabeth Holloway Marston, and Bella Heathcote as Olive Byrne a former student and longtime partner of the Marston's. The man lived an extremely unconventional lifestyle by modern standards let alone the 1940's. The feminism that has always been baked into the DNA of Wonder Woman has been there from the beginning and this movie says that it will tell the story behind that man.
With Wonder Woman going on to be a smash hit there are going to be a lot of people googling her and finding out about her origins. Annapurna Pictures doesn't have a release date yet but considering the box office last weekend that is going to change very soon.
