Hot on the heels of her success with Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, a sexy, strange tale of the real historical origins of Amazon superhero Diana Prince that just premiered at TIFF, writer-director Angela Robinson has chosen her next project: an adaptation of Terry Moore’s crime-romance comic Strangers in Paradise.
Behind every great man, there’s a great woman; behind Wonder Woman, there was a wondrous man. Dr. William Moulton Marston was a professor of psychology when he first ginned up the idea for DC’s most famed distaff defender, working under a pseudonym to protect his reputation. But the man had more secrets than the average reader might realize. He and his wife Elizabeth entered into a passionate polyamorous relationship with one of William’s students, Olive Byrne, though the time’s standards of propriety forced them to live in secret. And then there was all the bondage stuff.
