Yesterday evening DC Entertainment announced that, as part of a promotion to celebrate Wonder Woman’s first solo feature film, they would be having their first “Wonder Woman Day” on June 3. This celebration is happening the day after the official opening day of the Wonder Woman solo film. This day will be used to honor all things Wonder Woman and will celebrate the 75 years worth of the awesomeness that Wonder Woman has delivered to audiences in celebrations held all over the world.
So what kind of activities and promotions are being planned? I am glad you asked. There is a lot that DC has announced, so prepare yourself:
More than 2,000 comic retailers, bookstores, libraries and other partners around the world will host “Wonder Woman Day” activations, including distributing free copies of two special edition issues.
