The movie will examine the life of author Dr. William Moulton Marston, his wife Elizabeth and their complex relationship with Olive Byrne. The trio lived together and Marston had children with both.

Under the pen name Charles Moulton, he based the character of Wonder Woman on the feminist ideals of the two women in his life.

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is directed and written by Angela Robinson, with Luke Evans starring as Marston and Rebecca Hall as his wife Elizabeth Holloway Marston. Bella Heathcote will play Olive Byrne.

There is renewed interest in Marston after the huge worldwide success of Patty Jenkins’ and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman.

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women hits cinemas in October. Check out the trailer here:
