Here’s a story that’s both nerdy and delicious. It should come as no surprise that a movie as huge as Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice would have substantial marketing and product placement behind it, and it should come as no surprise that those products would be top shelf. In other words, no Royal Crown cola for Batman V. Superman. No, the DC Comics legends will be appearing on cans of Dr. Pepper, coming soon, or arriving now, at a grocery store, corner store or quick stop near you. So now you know, the Man of Steel, the Dark Knight, and all their friends, are Peppers.
The new tie-in cans will feature one of five characters: Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Lois Lane (Amy Adams), and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). On top of that, every 12-pack (or three 8-packs of 12 oz. bottles) will let you get $5 towards the purchase of a movie ticket, which you will hopefully put towards Batman V. Superman when it comes out next month. Fun fact, Superman is one of the oldest superheroes still in print, and Dr. Pepper is one of the oldest sodas still being manufactured. Coincidence? Probably. Still refreshing? Absolutely.
We know, you’re dying to see the cans already. Well, here you go:
