Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, and Angela Robinson Bring Wonder Woman Biopic to New York Comic Con

Director and writer Angela Robinson has spent the last years trying to get a film made on the origins of Wonder Woman. The timing ended up lining up well, as her creative endeavour "Professor Marston and the Wonder Women" has finally found a release date to follow mere months after the release of the long-awaited "Wonder Woman" film which ended up being one of the greatest blockbuster successes of the entire year as well as to the superhero origin genre.

"Professor Marston and the Wonder Women" tells the story of Dr. William Moulton Marston, who lived in a polyamorous threesome with his wives Elizabeth and Olive. There is a sex and love-positive approach to the story in its inclusion of not only polyamory but also elements of BDSM. The topic of kinks and even the slightest deviations in standards of normalcy regarding romantic and sexual relationships is often treated in a problematic, fetishising manner when brought to life in mainstream films and television series. A film such as this is not only important to relaying the origins of one of the most beloved superheroes in the world but to put forth a more socially progressive depiction of these socially ostracised groups.

Angela Robinson was joined by stars Luke Evans and Rebecca Hall to discuss the process of making this film and the importance of the content at a panel at New York Comic Con.
