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.

Jason Momoa is getting in shape for Justice League

Here, Jason Momoa is dry. Scroll down for the wet.

While it stands to reason that anyone playing a hero called Aquaman would have to look good wet, I’d like to file a complaint with whoever got Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman, quite this wet for the cover of Entertainment Weekly.

Look, I know this “photographer” was just doing their “job” but what gave them the right to shoot an image of this absolutely enormous, bearded, heavily tattooed man with the body of a god and the hair of a WWE wrestler and put it on the cover of a magazine?

Look at how intensely he’s staring into the camera/the viewer’s immortal soul. Is it frightening? Yes. Am I ready to charter a boat in search of my buff aquatic king? Also yes!

Pause for a minute and think about what Jason Momoa must smell like in this picture. Think about it, manifest it, and breathe deeply through your nose. Congratulations.

But that’s not all! the Barnes and Noble version of Entertainment Weekly also included looks at Momoa’s Aquaman costars Nicole Kidman and Amber Heard, and smack between those two high-key attractive women is Momoa again, blonder this time, looking like he’s going to either kill someone or…yeah that’s just a “kill someone” look.

In the article, Aquaman executive producer Peter Safran had this to say about Momoa’s performance as a thicc amphibious man-hunk:

“Rarely has a superhero character been married to the real-life actor as much as Aquaman and Jason Momoa. “He’s authentically from two worlds, he’s this real physical specimen, he’s got this humor which he’s never been allowed to play before — in every regard he is Aquaman.”

A real physical specimen indeed.

A new tweet confirms that Chris Pine is back for ‘Wonder Woman 2’

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins announced Wednesday morning the game-changing return of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor for the film’s 2019 sequel.

If you saw Wonder Woman in 2017, you may recall one key detail about Steve Trevor: HE DIED. Or so we thought?? In a devastating sequence during the final battle, Steve bid Diana goodbye, gave her his family heirloom, and flew straight to his death.

OR SO WE THOUGHT.

Gal Gadot also shared an early still from the movie which shows Diana contemplating a series of cryptic television screens.

We learned early in June that the Wonder Woman sequel will likely be set in 1984, and Jenkins’ tweet suggests Wonder Woman 1984 may even be….”

We may have a clue about when ‘Wonder Woman 2’ takes place

Diana puts her game face on in Wonder Woman.

DC’s Geoff Johns may have dropped a serious hint about the Wonder Woman sequel – namely, the year it takes place.

Johns, DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer, shared a teaser on Facebook Friday morning that simply read “WW84,” which might point to seeing our hero in 1984.

Johns uploaded the image as his cover photo, where it slid largely under the radar until The Hollywood Reporter sniffed it out. Presumably, the teaser means Wonder Woman 2 will jump ahead to 1984.

We knew the sequel would move forward in time, leaving 1917 (and Steve Trevor) in the dust, but having an exact year narrows this down immensely. By 1984, Diana could run into a young Bruce Wayne or Clark Kent – or almost anyone else in the DCEU, hero or villain. She could also wear a lot of pastels.

Wonder Woman 2 will release Nov. 1, 2019.
