80-year legacy of Wonder Woman set to be honoured

Worldwide events include fan favourite digital content, publishing releases, new fashion collaborations and exhibitions.

DC, Warner Bros. Global Brands and Experiences and WarnerMedia used International Women’s Day (8 March) as a platform to launch a global celebration to honour the 80-year legacy of Wonder Woman.

Embracing the call to see the world through Wonder Woman’s eyes and to ‘Believe in Wonder’, the 80th anniversary celebration illuminates the super hero’s timeless and relevant message of hope and empowerment with original content, commemorative comics, books and global fashion collections and experiences.

The multi-month campaign will culminate with a worldwide celebration of Wonder Woman Day on 21 October.

Activity will include the Wonder Woman TV titles reborn with a retro-remix video, featuring Gal Gadot doing the signature spin that Lynda Carter made famous in the original series

WarnerMedia will also be producing videos which shine a spotlight on 80 ‘Women of Wonder’ including real women, network journalists and talent, cultural figures, experts, influencers and celebrities who are advancing representation in their fields.

Fashion collaborations are planned with the likes of Venus Williams, Camilla and Azede Jean-Pierre, while a pop art design has been created by Innocean USA – which also designed the 80th anniversary logo.

DC is making All-Star Comics #8 (the first appearance of Wonder Woman), Sensation Comics #1 (the first comic headlined by Wonder Woman) and Wonder Woman #1 (1942) free to read on fan destination, DC Universe Infinite.

There will also be a Wonder Woman 80th Anniversary 100-page ‘spectacular’ which will bring together some of the greatest storytellers in comics and entertainment for a collectable keepsake to the character. Launching on Wonder Woman Day in October, the book will include original stories and an art montage.

Finally, Wonder Woman 1984 will release in the US in digital HD on 16 March and then on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on 30 March.
