Coca-Cola Takes the Marvel-ous Route: Uniting Worlds, One Sip at a Time!

Coca-Cola and Marvel are extending their heroic partnership with the launch of limited-edition packaging and immersive storytelling featuring a cinematic commercial. Coca-Cola x Marvel: The Heroes showcases custom illustrations of over 30 characters from across the Marvel Universe—from Ant-Man to Captain America—on Coca-Cola and Coca-Cola Zero Sugar bottles and cans, brought to life with a balance of white, red, and black tones.

Scannable QR codes unlock Augmented Reality (AR) animation experiences for each hero or villain, along with the opportunity to win exclusive prizes such as Disney Cruise vacations, autographed memorabilia, and more. This collaboration will be supported by an immersive, multifaceted campaign anchored by a new commercial, as well as digital character collectibles, out-of-home content, and exclusive merchandise on

In the commercial, a woman inadvertently puts an entire comic book world in danger before the "Real Magic" of Coca-Cola unites the Marvel Universe to save the day. "Coca-Cola has a long history with Disney, and it’s exciting to have a relationship that encourages and enables us to continue to push ourselves and our relationship to new heights creatively," said Islam ElDessouky, Global Head of Creative Strategy and Content for Coca-Cola Trademark.

He further said, "This latest collaboration with Marvel allows us to tap into the legacy and affinity for both brands to deliver consumers new and unexpected experiences."

Starting April 8, fans can begin collecting characters as packaging begins to rotate on shelves in more than 50 countries across North America, Latin America, Europe, China, Japan, and the Asia Pacific region. Fans should keep an eye out for their favorite Marvel characters throughout the summer.

"Our corporate alliance with Coca-Cola uniquely positioned us to develop something remarkably innovative within the industry," said Mindy Hamilton, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing Partnerships at The Walt Disney Company.

"We took the traditional marketing paradigm and redefined it in the best way possible. The result is an unprecedented campaign that taps into the power of the Marvel Universe—which is entering its 85th year of beloved characters—and tells stories in a way that can only be done when Coca-Cola and Disney come together."
