Wonder Woman turned 75 years old this year, and Warner Bros. and DC announced that they plan on celebrating at Comic-Con and all year long.
“There’s no better time than now,” DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson tells People of the resurgence of Wonder Woman. “The overall conversation that’s happening in our culture right now – about having stronger gender equality representation in media and in government and in education and all of it just makes it the perfect time to see a character like Wonder Woman out there.”
Expect to see a lot of clothing and merchandise released throughout the year. As previously reported, a special limited edition Wonder Woman Barbie doll will be available at San Diego Comic-Con in July, but that’s not all. The Wonder Woman costumes from Gal Gadot’s upcoming movie will be on display at the event as well.
Diane Nelson also revealed some new details about the movie. “It will have its own tone and look – it’s beautiful,” she says. “There is humor in it, there is real emotion in Diana’s journey in discovering the complexity of man.”
One thing it won’t have? “There is no invisible jet,” Nelson spills. “Not in this iteration.”
I expected the first Wonder Woman trailer to be released during San Diego Comic-Con, which runs from July 21-24 this year. We already know that Suicide Squad is taking over the show, but it’s cool to see that Wonder Woman will have a presence too.
