No, this isn't the trailer for the Wonder Woman sequel.

 

Instead of taking place in the same DC Extended Universe as Wonder Woman's smash-hit film adaptation earlier this year, Professor Marston & the Wonder Women is a biopic that tells the story of Professor William Marston, who penned the original series under the pseudonym Charles Moulton.

 

In fact, the Wonder Woman comics have a backstory that's significantly more risqué than DC's recent Gal Gadot-led film. Set in the 1940s, Professor Marston's titular character (Luke Evans) engages in a sordid love triangle with his wife Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall) and their shared romantic partner Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote).

 

Professor Marston & the Wonder Women arrives in theaters Oct. 27.
