Director Angela Robinson has just announced that her ‘Wonder Woman’ biopic ‘Professor Marston and the Wonder Women‘ is set to debut a week earlier than expected! Fans who have been looking forward to this release no longer have to wait until October 27th, 2017 but instead can see it on October 13th. The film is all about the creation of ‘Wonder Woman’ in a story that many don’t know.
It stars Luke Evans as Dr. William Moulton Marston and his polyamorous relationship with Rebecca Hall as his wife Elizabeth and Bella Heathcote will play the role of his mistress Olive Byrne. This relationship is directly what leads to the creation of one of DC comic’s most iconic characters, and probably the most well known female superhero of all time.
Robinson made the announcement on Twitter and also released three new character posters with it which you can see below:

The biopic is already set for a smaller release, but it doesn’t have a lot of competition with the other releases including the upcoming Jackie Chan film ‘The Foreigner,’ ‘Happy Death Day,’ and the biopic ‘Marshall.’ With ‘Wonder Woman’ doing so well at the box office there should be an audience for it.

In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940’s. While Marston’s feminist superhero was criticized 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 his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research — while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.
