Ok, so the cynical side of FTN wants to say that this is just a cash in on the success of Wonder Woman, but the comic and film fan in us wants to say this is a story that should be told and, on top of that, it looks fun.

Professor Marston & The Wonder Women is the true-life story of Wonder Woman creator William Moulton Marston and the women in his life that led him to create DC’s strongest lady.

Check out the new clip below dubbed ‘no-one will ever print this’ and check out the cool posters above and below.

We’re looking forward to this.

Are you?

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.

Professor Marston & The Wonder Women is set for release on October 13th and stars Luke Evans (Dracula Untold, Beauty and the Beast) as Dr. William Moulton Marston, Rebecca Hall (The Prestige, Iron Man 3) as Elizabeth Marston, and Bella Heathcote (The Man in the High Castle, The Neon Demon) as Olive Byrne. Also featuring in the cast are Connie Britton (Nashville, American Horror Story), and Oliver Platt (Chicago P.D., X-Men: First Class).

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
