Wonder Woman is approaching its theater debut, and there will be more than a few new fans of the DC icon once they see the film. It's best then to be ready to build off that momentum, and keep your eye out for some delightful Wonder Woman themed items that will allow them to represent their new favorite wherever they go.
The good news is that there is already a myriad of Wonder Woman items on the market, and you can find something for just about every type of fan. If they're more casual in their superhero love, buying them something for their office or game room might be the best way to go. If they want to find out more about the character, heading to the comics and television is perhaps a better avenue. If they prefer to wear their Wonder Woman pride on the outside, some stylish clothing might be the key.
In any case, sometimes the most entertaining part for a new fan is getting to know why the character is so beloved, and this excellent 75th Anniversary Box Set primer is the best way to do it.
Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Box Set
The thing you have to be careful about with comics or books, in general, is overwhelming a new fan with irrelevant information. Sure telling something that complicated history of a character might sound like a good time to you, but to someone who isn't as familiar with these concepts it can be overloading or at worst completely boring.
Something like this is the perfect primer because you just give it to them and let them read at their own pace. The set comes with four volumes of material, including key runs from George Perez, Greg Rucka, Gail Simone, and Brian Azzarello. It isn't meant to answer every question but just goes over some essential pieces. Since it also includes some modern storylines, they can easily jump into something like Wonder Woman Rebirth Vol. 1 with relative ease, and it isn't nearly as intimidating as giving them 4 long boxes of comics and saying "here, have fun".
The 75th Anniversary Box Set is available now and retails for around $30.00.
Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition
While this is Wonder Woman's first time on the big screen, this is not her first movie. The Amazon warrior actually starred in one of DC Animation's best movies a few years ago, and it manages to stand up to the test of time quite well.
The storylines will vary a bit of course, but if you're looking for more kick ass Wonder Woman this is the best place to go (aside from just going to see the movie again...which should not be discouraged mind you). It expertly blends the more mythological aspects of Wonder Woman's origin with the modern day societal issues that still rear the head on a regular basis, and does so with humor and grace. Warner Bros. just released a commemorative edition of the film as well, so it should be easy to find, and as a bonus, it comes packed with commentary and bonus features.
The Blu-ray DVD version is available now for around $19.99.prevnext
Wonder Woman Morphing Coffee Mugs
The poster campaign for Wonder Woman has been fantastic, but the only downside to buying tons of posters is that not everyone gets to see those posters on a daily basis (aside from your significant other and your pet). Why not take that amazing artwork on the go then?
It's the best of both worlds really. You can have the stunning artwork of the movie and drink your coffee at the same time. Not content to just slap the art on there, these morphing mugs reveal the image as they heat up, so after pouring, you'll see the image and a message on the other side. The mugs come in several versions, including the Protector of Humanity, Lady of Hope, and Ready for Battle versions. Each one retails for around $18.99, and they are expected to hit sometime in June.prevnext
Fight For Justice MightyPrint
After a few watchings of the DCEU's latest addition, you'll more than likely want to add a flair of Wonder Woman to your office space. There are more than a few options, and the studio's official offerings have all been spectacular, so it's hard to go wrong.
Still, if you're looking for something that captures the courageousness and determination fo the character, this wall art from Mighty Print is for you. The poster reads Fight For Justice, Be Brave And Fierce, and features version of Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman crossing her bracelets. The print has a vintage feel to it, like those old military recruitment posters, and would look amazing in anything from an office to a game room to someone's bedroom.
It's pretty durable too and is relatively cheap at $16.99. The print is available for pre-order and ships in June.prevnext
Wonder Woman Jackets
Sometimes you need to wear your fandom on your sleeve literally, and the good news is that there are several different jackets coming to the market to fulfill that need.
The first is the Her Universe Wonder Woman Armor faux leather jacket. It takes the familiar red, blue, and gold of the current suit and envisions it as a modern costume-like jacket. The results are quite stunning, and any Wonder Woman fan would love to have this in their collection. The only downside is that it is just about sold out, so right now the only sizes are XS and SM. Hopefully, they'll get a restock in soon, so make sure to keep checking the site. The jacket retails for $79.90.
If you prefer the denim look, guys can grab Hero Within's Wonder Woman denim jacket. The jacket is styled more like a traditional denim shirt with dual pockets and long sleeves but has the Wonder Woman logo embroidered on the back as well as the inside. Sizes range from XS to 3XL, and it retails for $129.00.prevnext
Before You Go
Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action-adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
