The film, due out October 13th, revolves around Dr. William Moulton Marston thinking long and hard to create the idea and story behind Wonder Woman. Thanks to the ideas of his feminist student and wife he creates the balance of femininity and strength for readers of the 1940s. His work was criticized and remained controversial as he wrote under the name Charles Moulton. The polyamorous relationship he pursued was seen as unethical, yet from him we received a powerhouse character, and that character is a woman imagined from women.
This is the story that digs deep into the psych and society’s rooted and predetermined ideas on femininity while simultaneously enlightening about a story that has become one of the most known pop culture.
If you’re a comic fan, a Wonder Woman fan, or want the story behind the story, this one is for you.
