Iron Maiden and Marvel announce merchandise collaboration

Iron Maiden and Marvel have joined together to produce a unique set of merchandise that joins the Marvel universe of Wolverine, Venom, Thanos and Deadpool with Eddie and Maidens iconic imagery such as Fear of the Dark, The Trooper and Killers.

“Eddie has long stood shoulder to shoulder with the greatest super-heroes,” Rod Smallwood said, “and we’re also pretty proud of the Worlds we created for his many incarnations, from battlefields to Egyptian tombs to frozen icescapes or futuristic cities.

“Juxtaposing some of the most recognizable characters in pop art and comic book culture into planet Maiden has been an ambition of ours for years, and working with Marvel, and their unparalleled character-based IP is the perfect fit in this day and age.

“To see such iconic characters alongside Eddie is something our fans have discussed for years, and we think that the twist of placing Venom, Thanos, Thor or Deadpool in our Maiden worlds will excite fans of both cultures.”

“Marvel is cool and aspirational and has inspired the greatest artists, musicians and creators for more than 80 years,” said Paul Gitter, SVP, Marvel Licensing. “This collaboration offers another exciting example of how the Marvel brand continues to push into lifestyle areas, with music being a top priority, and the collection allows fans to pay tribute to our iconic characters while celebrating the legendary Iron Maiden.”

The collection will be available from Iron Maiden’s online store, speciality retailer Hot Topic and German e-tailer, EMP.
