Wishful Drinking: Marvel-Themed Absolut Bottles

This “Absolut x Marvel” line isn’t real, but maybe — if enough folks post about it and the right marketing people get wind of it — the campaign could become a reality.

The good folks over at CBR first spotted these bottles, by Indonesian designer Krizia Soetaniman, who came up with the idea to combine the Absolut bottle with minimalist portraits of Marvel characters Captain America, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Thor, Hulk and — yes, really — Iron Man, along with baddies Venom and Magneto.

As a public service, here are the first and second TV spots, and the amazing full-length movie trailer.

The ‘Secret’ Avenger in the New ‘Ultron’ Poster

AvengerscrammedYou know that awesome (crowded) new poster that Marvel released to tease Avengers: Age of Ultron?

The one that featured all our returning faves, including Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson, who’s been in self-imposed exile; and newcomers Vision (Paul Bettany) — backlit by the sun; and the twins Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) in the upper right? That one?
