What Is That Mysterious Short Film Attached To Wonder Woman?

The wait is finally over. After years in development hell, Wonder Woman has finally been released in theaters, and the overall consensus from critics and audiences alike is that it's one of the best superhero movies of all time. Diana is already primed to return in later this year in Justice League, and a Wonder Woman sequel is being considered. However, there is a third Wonder Woman-related movie that's arriving in the coming years: Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, which will be about the superheroine's creation in the early 1940s. Now we know that a short film is attached to Wonder Woman teasing this biopic to the public.

It's already been confirmed that Wonder Woman will not have an end-credits scene, but there is a teaser playing sometime before or after Diana of Themyscira's solo adventure that ends with a card that says "Ever Wonder?" and a site link. If you go to that website, you'll see a comic depicting Professor William Moulton Marston, his wife Elizabeth and his partner Olive Byrne, who helped inspired the creation of Wonder Woman. Above the trio and below another comic panel showing three figures chatting, it says, "Professor M...There's more to wonder. Soon."

This comic is intriguing on its own, but adding fuel to the fire, Annapurna Pictures has posted a portion of this comic on its Twitter page.

If that's not enough for you, Iron Man 3 vet Rebecca Hall, who will play Elizabeth Marston in Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, posted a different portion of that same comic on her Twitter page with the "Ever Wonder" tagline as her caption.

Taking all this into consideration, folks who enjoy Wonder Woman this weekend will definitely want to pay attention to the short film promoting Professor Marston and the Wonder Women. It's important to note that the biopic is being distributed by Sony, while Wonder Woman, like all other DC Comics movies, hails from Warner Bros. However, given the subject material, this could be one of those rare instances where two studios are working together for promote a project. After all, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women doesn't work unless Wonder Woman can mentioned and shown, so it's appreciated that Warner Bros was cool with tacking on this teaser to provide extra publicity. Along with Rebecca Hall, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women's cast includes Luke Evans as William Marston, Bella Heathcote as Olive Byrne, Connie Britton, Oliver Platt and Frank L. Ridley.

While we wait for more updates on Professor Marston and the Wonder Women (including its release date), you can catch Wonder Woman in theaters now, and be sure to read our review of the fourth DCEU movie.
