Connie Britton and Oliver Platt have been added to the cast of Professor Marston & The Wonder Woman, the biopic from writer/director Angela Robinson. The two join Rebecca Hall, Luke Evans and Bella Heathcoate.
The film details the true story of Dr. William Moulton Marston (Evans), Harvard psychologist and inventor who created Wonder Woman in 1941; his wife, fellow psychologist and inventor Elizabeth (Hall); and their polyamorous relationship with Olive Byrne (Heathcote), a former student of Marston’s and an academic in her own right. Britton will play Josette Frank, a brilliant and uncompromising psychologist who thought Marston to be anti-feminist and believed his ideas were dangerous. Platt plays M.C. Gaines, the portly, hot-tempered editor at Sensation Comics who discovered superman.
