After all, because DC is so well-known, there are many companies making products based on the franchise, which results in plenty of possible gifts. In fact, you could say there are too many as it’s hard to look through all the options. To make things easier, here is a collection of a few standouts.
Perfect Holiday Gift Ideas For DC Fans
LEGO Batwing: Batman vs. The Joker
Batman Has The Best DC Lego Sets
Based on the 1989 Batman movie, this Lego set features the Batwing from that film as well as detailed minifigures of Batman and the Joker.
- Plenty of detail on the Batwing and minifigures
- Can be hung on the wall, making it a perfect display piece
- Batwing can shoot projectiles
Lego has made a bunch of DC-based sets over the years. Yet, Batman seems to get most of the best ones. This Batwing, based on the 1989 movie, stands out because it’s highly detailed and looks just like the vehicle from the film.
Plus, it’s perfect for play or display. This is because it’s sturdy enough for playing with, and it’s also capable of being hung on the wall as a display piece. So, it’s a perfect gift for DC fans of all ages.
An Underrated Gem
This DCEU movie serves as the origin story of the underrated superhero known as the Blue Beetle. It shows how Jaime Reyes gained his special powers and adapted to them.
- Likable characters
- An origin story that hasn’t been re-told a dozen times
The DCEU hasn’t been an overwhelming critical success. This is likely why some of the recent movies have been overlooked, including Blue Beetle. It isn’t the greatest superhero movie ever made, yet, it’s a solid and enjoyable flick.
It’s nice to have a comic book movie that is a bit more grounded instead of the multiverse-heavy titles we have been getting recently. Plus, there’s plenty of humor and heart in the title. So, it’s worth a watch.
