In anticipation of the Ant-Man and The Wasp film, IHEARTCOMIX partnered with Marvel Studios, POW! WOW! Worldwide, and artists Apexer and Amandalynn, to bring a few specially-made #WaspWings pop ups to some cool events across the United States this summer. From the west coast to the east coast, fans had a blast transforming into ultra-colorful versions of the new superhero in the upcoming film.
Our first stop was The Governors Ball Music Festival, on Randall’s Island in New York City, where internationally known artist Apexer created the first set of wings that all 150,000 attendees of the fest were able to enjoy.
After such a great success in NYC, we packed our backs and headed to San Francisco’s North Beach Festival. This time, we enlisted the help of the incredible artist Amandalynn to do her own spin on the #WaspWings. Families, friends, and even dogs lined up to take pictures in front of the exclusive mural.
The fun didn’t end there, though! Our #WaspWings walls made such a splash that Marvel ask us to bring one to the red carpet of the world premiere of Ant-Man and The Wasp in Los Angeles. Lucky attendees took pictures with the wall on their way in to see the film and made their friends by sharing their pics on social media.
Last but not least, we made one last trip back to the east coast to bring Disney World in Orlando, Florida their own #WaspWings wall. We invited our pal Apexer back to create one more technicolor mural for the folks at Disney Springs to enjoy.
IHEARTCOMIX had so much fun collaborating with Marvel Studios, once again. You can see our previous collab that we did for Black Panther here. Make sure to go watch Ant-Man and The Wasp in theaters July 6th. The #WaspWings will continue on a six city tour so follow Marvel’s socials to see where the #WaspWings will go next. Stay tuned for even more Ant-Man themed treats coming from us very soon!
