Trivia

Often erroneously thought to the the inventor of the polygraph, better known as the lie-detector, William Moulton Marston was actually the inventor of the systolic blood pressure cuff, an important component of the polygraph. This misconception is reinforced by the biographical picture "Professor Marston and the Wonder Women." The invention of the polygraph is more appropriately credited to John Augustus Larson.
A very close friend of the Marston family is Lynda Carter, the star of Wonder Woman (1975).
Marston was a psychologist related to the D.I.S.C. model of behavioral styles.
William Marston's granddaughter Christie Marston publicly stated that her family "completely rejects any claims made in the film and in no way support this work of fiction".

Though promoted as "the true story" of William Moulton Marston, Elizabeth Marston and Olive Byrne, most of this film is speculative as the Marstons' never accounted their intimate life. At the 2017 New York Comic Con, Angela Robinson was asked by Travis Langley, a friend of the Marston family, and said that she "talked to a source who said that that was her interpretation, who had studied them, chose to tell the story as my interpretation of the story, and I think that there's a lot of facts that are indisputable about the Marstons and I feel that there's a lot that's open to interpretation. So as a filmmaker, this was my interpretation of their story."
