Greetings, all. Sorry for the silence, but this might go some way towards explaining why: I’ve got an article up today at UK feminist blog The F Word! It’s about Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, a new biopic of William Moulton Marston, the creator of Wonder Woman.
The movie has been praised for its acting and direction and it’s a rare positive portrayal of a polyamorous triad relationship onscreen, but Marston’s granddaughter Christie says the family wasn’t consulted and director Angela Robinson makes some wild assumptions about the Marstons’ life together. I got involved on Twitter and created the hashtag #lassothetruth. My article asks whether this movie is really a step forward for polyamorous representation when it doesn’t accurately represent the relationship at its centre – plus, isn’t Wonder Woman supposed to be about truth?
Coming soon: Some Thoughts on the current Wonder Woman run by James Robinson, Wonder Woman ’77, and dropping things off your comics shop pull list (the guilt is real)!
