Hulk Chases Down Ant-Man in Coca-Cola Super Bowl Commercial

Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner a.k.a. The Incredible Hulk may not be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2016 after running off at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but he will be back to team-up with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in 2017's Thor: Ragnarok.

In the meantime the rest of the Earthbound Avengers feud amongst themselves this summer in Captain America: Civil War, paving the way for newcomers like Ant-Man to enlist in Earth's Mightiest. And to emphasize the shared universe aspect of the MCU, and to help get money to pay for a 60-second Super Bowl spot, Coca-Cola and Marvel teamed up to pit Ant-Man vs. Hulk against each other.

The very first time live-action Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hulk (no Mark Ruffalo in this one) share the screen together is in an advertisement for Coca-Cola, specifically, the Coke Mini.

Moments ago, the 60-second “Coke Mini” spot debuted during the Big Game, and it celebrated the blockbuster refreshment of Coca-Cola’s smallest package option—the 7.5-ounce Mini Can. Through an epic battle between two of Marvel’s most popular Super Heroes—The Incredible Hulk and Ant-Man—the spot conveyed one simple, yet undeniable truth: Sometimes you just want a little Coca-Cola.

The airing of the Coke Mini Super Bowl ad (watch up top!) kicks off a virtual hunt for Marvel-themed Coca-Cola Mini Cans, which feature six of the world’s best-known heroes – Hulk, Ant-Man, Black Widow, Captain America, Iron Man and Falcon.

Each day through February 14, Coca-Cola will release hidden clues (known as “Easter eggs”) through its social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Snapchat. Each individual “Easter egg” will unlock a limited number of cans and provide young adults direction for the chance to obtain a limited edition six-pack of their own. Marvel-themed, limited-edition Coca-Cola Mini Cans are not available for sale in retail outlets – and only available while supplies last.
