Marvel and Funko have collaborated to create the first-ever Funko animated shorts.
The collaboration will see the shorts with each one lasting 90 seconds in length. They will feature some of Marvel’s most popular characters including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Loki, Rocket, Groot, the Collector, Deadpool, and Venom.
“Telling Marvel stories in the Funko Pop! aesthetic is a special kind of magic unlike anything we’ve ever done. These shorts are both hilarious and action-packed – and irresistibly adorable too. Really, I think all audiences will love them,” said Cort Lane, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Animation and Family Entertainment.
“We are beyond excited to bring our Pop! Vinyl to life by collaborating with Marvel,” said Mark Robben, Funko’s Director of Marketing. “We hope fans enjoy these short films as much as they do collecting Pop!, and hopefully we’ll be able to create many more.”
