Wonder Woman is arguably the most iconic female character of all time through nearly any medium or time in history. Her status is up there with Monalisa and Joan of Arc as far as significance and icon status, but ironically, Wonder Woman was created by a man ahead of his time. William Moulton Marston was the main creator of Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman and his story is going to be told on the big screen thanks through Sony.
Marston is not only the creator of Wonder Woman, but also one of the few men to openly fight for women’s rights and equality while he was simultaneously helping create the lie detector. For the first time on the silver screen, we will get to see Marston’s creation in full action with Gal Gadot in the leading role, but he is just as deserving a film as she is.
Sony Pictures has gained the rights to the script that will be titled Professor Marston and the Wonder Women which will highlight the life of the inventive man and also the women that influenced him to bring Wonder Woman to life. The film has already begun production and has it’s stars aligned as we speak with Luke Evans (Dracula Untold), Rebecca Hall (Iron Man 3), and Bella Heathcote (The Neon Demon) already signed on for the film.
If you want to talk about a story and relationship between three people far ahead of it’s time, the three actors named will portray the main characters who share a polyamorous relationship with each other and secretly expressed their sexuality through the early comics as well as the creation of Wonder Woman when Dr. William Moulton Marston was a professor at Harvard. Their hidden relationship with each other was kept under wraps in a time it could have ruined all their careers and reputations no matter how significant to America they truly were. This is poised to be a fascinating story worth telling and the cast seems perfect for the roles at hand.
