While the Gal Gadot-led Wonder Woman continues to break records at the box office, a separate movie coming later this year will tell the scandalous story of the comic book icon’s genesis.
Annapurna Pictures on Tuesday released the first official trailer for Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, which centers around the life of Harvard psychologist and comic book writer William Marston, the creator of Wonder Woman. The film highlights the love triangle that arose between Marston and his two muses: his wife, Elizabeth, and their shared lover, Olive. Set in the 1940s and based on the real-life events that led to Wonder Woman’s creation, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women will explore the interior lives of these three individuals and how Elizabeth and Olive’s perspectives on feminism and sexuality came to form the character of Wonder Woman.
The movie will be written and directed by Angela Robinson and will star Luke Evans as Professor Marston, Rebecca Hall as Elizabeth, and Bella Heathcote as Olive. Connie Britton will also make an appearance.

A bipartisan group of governors issued a statement Tuesday praising senators for standing up to President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) proposal to repeal ObamaCare without an immediate replacement.
"Congress should work to make health insurance more affordable by controlling costs and stabilizing the market, and we are pleased to see a growing number of senators stand up for this approach," wrote governors including John Kasich of Ohio (R) and Montana’s Steve Bullock (D). "The Senate should immediately reject efforts to ‘repeal’ the current system and replace sometime later."
