In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, this is the true story of 1940s Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston, the inventor of the lie detector and creator of the iconic Wonder Woman, who defends his feminist superhero against charges of ‘sexual perversity’ while at the same time maintaining a secret that could have destroyed him. Unknown to others, Marston’s inspiration for Wonder Woman was his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women in the field of psychology who defied convention, building a secret life together with Marston that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.
The upcoming film stars Luke Evans (Dracula Untold, Beauty and the Beast) as Dr. William Moulton Marston, Rebecca Hall (The Prestige, Iron Man 3) as Elizabeth Marston, and Bella Heathcote (The Man in the High Castle, The Neon Demon) as Olive Byrne. The film also stars Connie Britton (Nashville, American Horror Story) and Oliver Platt (Chicago P.D., X-Men: First Class) and is directed by Angela Robinson.
