Whether you love drowning in the pages of a graphic novel or just enjoy keeping up with your favorite universe on-screen, we all have heroes and villains that we just can’t get enough of. Indulge your geeky obsessions or those of your friends with some comic swag. We swear we won’t tell if you decide to treat yourself to a holiday gift. 

 

Codenames – Marvel Edition

Codenames is a card game where two teams have to try and make their partners guess what words they’re thinking of. In the Marvel Edition, you play on either Team Shield or Hydra and try to get people to guess heroes and villains based on clues like “tragic backstories” or “portrayed by white guys named Chris.” It’s the perfect gift for Marvel fans who want to spice up game night.

Batman Wallet with Money Clip

It isn’t exactly WayneTech, but this Batman wallet is a great geeky way to hold on to all of your cards and cash. It has three slots for cards and a money clip to keep your bills secure. Never leave the cave without it. There’s also a Wonder Woman version if your preferences are more Amazonian. 

Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Card Game

Based on the cult classic series by Bryan Lee O’Malley, this game lets you come up with your own Scott Pilgrim storyline. You can beat down evil exes for points and unleash crazy card combos to pave your road to victory. It can’t be any crazier than a day at Honest Ed’s.

Groot Mini Fridge

Perfect for a Marvel marathon leading up to Infinity War, this mini-fridge with Baby Groot printed on the front can hold your snacks and drinks so they’re on standby when you’re blasting through movies. Bonus: It has both warm and cool settings.

Deadpool Sports Jacket

Who wouldn’t want to dress up as the merc with a mouth? This stylish sports jacket is waterproof and makes you look killer, pun sort of intended.

Wonder Woman headphones

After Wonder Woman’s spectacular cinematic debut this year, who wouldn’t want to show some love for Diana of Themyscira? These over-the-ear headphones have Wonder Woman’s signature logo and star-spangled designs that only true Amazons will appreciate.

Hela handbag

Hela is our new favorite (and unfortunately one of like, two) villainesses of the MCU that rocked the god of thunder’s world in Thor: Ragnarok. Honor your newfound love for the goddess of death with this handbag styled after her epic armor. 

Herocross DC Comics Metal Figures

You deserve cooler looking display toys than Funko Pops, and these Herocross DC Metal figures can do just the trick. The Superman and Batman figures are fully poseable and come with their own accessories.

Lady Deadpool Heat Changing Mug

Your morning coffee could definitely use more mouthy mercs. This Lady Deadpool mug changes when you add your hot beverage, revealing some awesome art of the deadly assassin strutting her stuff. The perfect geeky pick-me-up.

Sodium Batman shirt

If you don’t get this joke, then we sort of feel bad for you, but here’s the quick explainer. The symbol for sodium is Na — ring any bells? Like the Batman theme song, perhaps?

Thor Winter Hat

Let the god of thunder’s headgear keep you warm this winter as you strut around in the snow like a true Asgardian.

Wonder Woman Sword

Not unlike your average lightsaber toy, Diana’s epic God Killer sword makes sounds as you swing it. The blade is also made of foam so it’s relatively light, but you should still be careful not to hit anyone with it.

Captain America Canvas Crossbody Bag

This canvas bag is strong and brave, here to save the American way. It’s got plenty of pockets and patriotic patches to show your love for the Star-Spangled man in style.

A post shared by Jake Gyllenhaal (@jakegyllenhaal) on

The Instagram video features Gyllenhaal reading an old issue of The Amazing Spider-Man, with a glaring cover that announces “The Return of the Man Called MYSTERIO!”

This will be Gyllenhaal’s first real comic book movie. He’s no stranger to big-budget blockbusters (The Day After Tomorrow) or geek-friendly adaptations (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), but Spider-Man 2 was the closest he ever came to participating in a big screen superhero story.
