#MixxEntertainment: New Justice League Comic to Launch

By  |  0 Comments

Mercedes-Benz has partnered with Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment to publish an action-packed digital comic book series as part of Mercedes-Benz’s global campaign to promote the upcoming “Justice League” film.

Produced exclusively for the Mercedes-Benz Instagram channel, the six standalone stories focus on the private lives and alter egos of Justice League team members, including Bruce Wayne, Diana Prince and more, as they save the day with a little help from their heroic Mercedes vehicles. The series is written by Adam Schlagman who serves as Creative Director, Theatrical at DC Entertainment, and is drawn in the film actors’ likenesses by fan-favorite artist Jason Badower.

The first story, titled “Joyride,” features Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen and Ray Fisher’s Victor Stone, and can be viewed today on the Mercedes-Benz Instagram channel. New stories starring Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince, Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne, and Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry will be released on a recurring basis leading up to “Justice League’s” theatrical release on November 17, 2017.

“We are glad to launch the first of six exclusive digital comic stories on our global Instagram channel today. This innovative approach reflects our urge to always offer exclusive and unique content to our worldwide social media fan base. Stay tuned, there are more great campaign assets to come before the release of ‘Justice League’ on November 17, with many more insights of this remarkable global partnership,” says Dr. Jens Thiemer, Vice-President Marketing Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars.

Each installment will be promoted with custom MOVs and teaser imagery posted across the auto company’s social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. The comic was produced by DC’s Custom Creative Studio, the premier custom content creation team at DC Entertainment.

About the Mercedes-Benz “Justice League” Promotional Campaign:

The Mercedes-Benz “Justice League” co-promotional campaign kicked off on October 5 at the New York City Comic Con ahead of the November 17 release of Warner Bros. Pictures’ much-anticipated epic action adventure. Starting October 9, Mercedes-Benz has launched a TV commercial featuring all main vehicles appearing in the film. The TVC will explain why Mercedes-Benz vehicles are “hard to resist”—even if you’re actually a superhero. The automotive star of the campaign motif for print, online and OOH is the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Convertible, which makes an appearance surrounded by members of DC’s iconic league of heroes. And “Symbols,” another quite different campaign motif, shows an even stronger connection between these Super Heroes and Mercedes-Benz, with a surprising take on the brand’s three-pointed star logo.

An extensive “making of” featurette provides film and comics fans with an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the film shoot, highlighting the main Mercedes-Benz vehicles and the tremendous effort by Mercedes-Benz’s visionary in-house design team to build up the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo interior for its big-screen debut.
