CNET Editorial Review
If William Marston’s work is known to everyone, few know the unusual story behind the creation of Wonder Woman. In the superhero origins of which director Angela Robinson is interested Professor Marston and the Wonder Woman. These assets are full of love.
Luke Evans plays William Marston, a psychologist without lack of ideas. Marston doesn’t really live in a traditional way, especially in the eyes of 1940s society, he loves his wife Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall), as well as young Olive (Bella Heathcote) with whom he romances.
Be careful, this is not a trivial story of fornication. The two women love each other, and these happy forces make up a triad. Plus, it doesn’t stop there … Marston also indulges in BDSM practices. Surprisingly, it is thanks to this unusual “herd” at the time that Wonder Woman was born.

Professor Marston and the Wonder Woman It is a very beautiful representation of the complexity of human relationships, a delicate picture filled with love.
In short, if you want to know more about Wonder Woman’s origins: go for it.
