In light of the Wonder Woman feature film’s incredible critical and box office success, it might be a good time to learn a little about the 75-year-old character’s creator, William Moulton Marston. Luckily, an upcoming biopic aims to delve into just that. The forthcoming film, titled Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, explores the background of Marston and the feminist potential behind Wonder Woman’s creation — and a suspenseful new teaser trailer is here to give you a taste.
Check out the brief trailer for Professor Marston and the Wonder Women below.
Directed by Angela Robinson, the biopic is set to follow Marston’s creation of Wonder Woman and the inspiration he drew from the women in his life, including his wife, Elizabeth, and their live-in girlfriend, Olive. The film stars Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast) as the titular Marston, Rebecca Hall (Iron Man 3) as Mrs. Elizabeth Marston, and Bella Heathcote (Fifty Shades Darker) as Olive Byrne.
In addition to the trailer, a teaser site has been unveiled for the film (as revealed at the end of the trailer) that features comic art showcasing the film’s stars as Dr. Marston, Mrs. Marston, and Byrne, in addition to Friday Night Lights’ Connie Britton, whose role has yet to be disclosed. The site also includes comic dialogue from the film’s script, along with social media profiles for the actors and director.
Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is currently in development; no release date has been set.
In theaters nationwide, director Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Ares, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy.
