Based on the DC Comics character created by Harvard-trained psychologist and inventor of the polygraph, William Moulton Marston (under the pseudonym Charles Mouton) his wife Elizabeth Holloway Marston, and artist H. G. Peter. Their cohabitant, Olive Byrne, is credited as being Marston’s muse for the iconic characters’ physical appearance.

After Moulton struck upon an idea for a new kind of superhero, one who would triumph not with fists or firepower, but with love it was his wife who urged him to make her a woman.

Wonder Woman first appeared in All Star Comics #8 (December 1941) and while some of William Moulton’s views on women are considered anathema by most, the success of the character is beyond doubt, achieving the controversial status of Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls earlier this year.

Wonder Woman is released in cinemas around the world next summer when Gal Gadot (first seen in the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.

Joining Gadot in the international cast are Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui. Jenkins directs the film from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns, story by Zack Snyder & Allan Heinberg, based on characters from DC Entertainment. Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston.

The film is produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder and Richard Suckle, with Rebecca Roven, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
