The campaign will run throughout the summer, the company added.

“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,” stated Islam ElDessouky, global head of creative strategy and content for Coca-Cola Trademark.

“This latest collaboration with Marvel allows us to tap into the legacy and affinity for both brands to deliver consumers new and unexpected experiences,” ElDessouky added.

The commercial, titled Coca-Cola x Marvel: The Heroes, features bespoke 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.

“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 heading into its 85th year of beloved characters—and tells stories in a way that can only be done when Coca-Cola and Disney come together.”
