Dr Pepper has joined forces with The Avengers

Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPSG) has unveiled collectible Dr Pepper cans in the US, featuring Marvel's The Avengers ahead of the comic super-heroes' summer movie.

The cans, available across the US, feature members of The Avengers, each in a specific pose. The eight cans can be put side-by-side to produce a panorama of the Marvel heroes, who will star in Walt Disney Pictures' Avengers Assemble, opening in the country on 4 May. 

The promotional campaign will also feature an online game and a new commercial. The online game, which links with social media sites, can be played on the Dr Pepper website.

In February, DPSG posted a full-year net profit rise of 14.8%.
