It's time for your periodic PEZ update. ;-) And with the onslaught of superhero movies being released this Summer, PEZ hasn't missed a beat!
Before we get into the news, here's a vintage PEZ ad just to show how long superheroes have been on their radar. This ad is dated 1980, but some quick research shows that the first superhero PEZ (color variations on Batman) were released in 1966.
In 2014, PEZ is adding another version of Captain America to the Marvel assortment in conjunction with Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie. This version has a red stem and a dark blue hood:
And, even though we'll also be seeing The Amazing Spider-man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past in theaters this Summer, PEZ has instead chosen to release a new The Flash dispenser to the DC assortment in June 2014.
Little is known about the upcoming The Flash movie, but it is slated for 2016 release.
Of course, this dispenser also helps to fill out the PEZ Justice League of America . . . . the script for THAT movie is still in development and is rumored to follow both The Flash and "Batman vs. Superman" in theaters. "Batman vs. Superman" is in production now and is also slated to hit theaters summer of 2016.
PEZ still has a few superheroes to go to fill out their JLA offering. THIS gal would certainly like to see an updated Wonder Woman dispenser . . .
