It shouldn’t come as a big surprise that Marvel Studios is putting a lot of money into Avengers: Infinity War. This is, after all, a film that has dozens of characters — a film that the past 18 have all led up to. Plus, given its reported budget of $300 million, it’s a little important that they ensure that audiences know about it.
But just how much are they throwing into it? According to Deadline, when taking into account partnerships with Coca-Cola, Quicken Loans, and Infiniti, the estimated media value in its marketing push is north of $150 million.
For comparison, last year, Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s media goods amounted to $140 million, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2‘s amounted to $80 million. With that in mind, it’s $150 million push doesn’t sound too impressive. Given that they were able to near that total with Spider-Man: Homecoming, it’s a bit less crazy-sounding. However, it’s worth noting that that film was a co-production with Sony, and it’s likely Sony had a hand in spending that much money. It’s likely that the $80 million Guardians push is more in line with typical Marvel.
Given that this is the franchise’s third film, their typical promo partners are doubling down on their overall support — no doubt because they know it will be a success.
“This movie is a celebration that we’ve been building toward for the past 10 years,” said Mindy Hamilton, Marvel’s SVP of Global Partnerships & Marketing.“We feel fortunate to have partnered with brands who share that excitement, and it’s been an incredibly rewarding experience to see their creative visions come to life.”
