Why do biopics exist?
No, really. Because I don't think producers really know.
Taking someone else's life and presenting it to the populace in order to tell a story that you want to tell, when you can't be bothered with reality or facts, is a tremendous disservice to the people you're speaking for. It also means that whatever story you're telling - the point of it, whatever that might be - is now hopelessly compromised the moment someone googles the subject of your film. Whatever homily you hoped to make of a life isn't going to survive first contact with anyone wondering why the hell you changed so many things. The hubris, man.
Look, I am not a William Moulton Marston scholar. I've read possibly three or four books about the history of Wonder Woman over the past 25 years, and I've done my fair share of reading of articles on and offline on same, and therefore touched upon the people at the center of Professor Marston and the Wonder Women (2017).
