Marvel Fireplace Videos Bring the Glow of the MCU Home for the Holidays
The weather outside is frightful, but Marvel Entertainment has a way to help you forget the chill in the air this year: a series of Yule Log videos, set inside the fictional homes of your favorite Marvel heroes.
The 10 videos — two each (a long shot in 4K with accompanying "Up Close" edit) for five different characters or concepts — debuted on Marvel's YouTube channel Thursday morning, offering fans the chance to share the season in Thor's Asgardian home, Captain America's Brooklyn apartment, Iron Man's Manhattan apartment, the Guardians of the Galaxy's spaceship or, interestingly enough, Ms. Marvel's New Jersey home — the one non-movie property on the list.
The videos are produced in association with Coca-Cola, continuing a partnership between the brands that has so far produced a Super Bowl ad and a line of Marvel-branded Coca-Cola cans.
Each video lasts an hour, giving anyone plenty of time to analyze decor choices of their favorite heroes — or, at least, wonder about the miniature sets that was created for each character. And isn't obsessive nitpicking what the season is really all about?
