Marston’s polyamorous relationship with wife Elizabeth Holloway (Rebecca Hall) and their lover, Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote) was key to the creation of Wonder Woman as their feminist ideals were ingrained in the character from her creation. Written and Directed by Angela Robinson (“True Blood”), “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women” also stars JJ Feild (“Captain America: The First Avenger”) with Oliver Platt (“Frost/Nixon”) and Connie Britton (“Nashville”).

The Blu-ray release of “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women” features revealing bonus material including deleted scenes, two behind-the-scenes featurettes, and a special motion comic revealing “The Surprising Secret Identity Of Charles Moulton,” the real psychologist and inventor of the lie detector and ‘Wonder Woman.’ Learn more about writer/director, Angela Robinson’s exhaustive and passionate research into this story and its characters in “A Crucial Point of View: Directing – Professor Marston And The Wonder Women.” In “A Dynamic Trio: Birth of a Feminist Icon,” stars Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, and Bella Heathcote reveal how the loving, yet alternative relationship between their characters informed their performances.

“Professor Marston and the Wonder Women” is based on the extraordinary true story of the creator of one of the most iconic superheroes ever conceived, and the seductive secret life he kept from his fans. Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans) was roundly criticized for the creation of his feminist superhero, but it was his personal life, with his polyamorous relationship with his wife, Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall) and their lover, Olive (Bella Heathcote), that was more provocative than any adventure he had ever written.
