They’ve always been heroes, but now they’re superheroes!

“We’re thrilled to be working with Marvel in bringing their superheroes to life with the U.S. Ski Team and beyond,” said Brady Collings, vice president of marketing for Spyder, per The Mary Sue. “Given Marvel’s inspirational impact around the world, we have an extraordinary opportunity to celebrate the U.S. Ski Team as well as our ambassadors in a broad-reaching way.”
“Avengers: Infinity War” is scheduled to be released in the United States on May 4, 2018, in IMAX and 3D. The sequel is scheduled to be released May 3, 2019.
