Marvel Entertainment and Toys “R” Us have teamed up to create a retail experience in support of the summer blockbuster film Marvel’s The Avengers, in theaters May 4. Toys “R” Us has unveiled in-store boutiques dedicated to the multi-character movie event in nearly 600 stores across the country.

Located at the front of every Toys “R” Us store in the U.S., fans can find boutiques showcasing Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye. Toys “R” Us Times Square is showcasing products based on the heroes in a dedicated boutique on Level Two.

Marvel has developed a worldwide licensing and merchandising campaign in support of the film. The in-store boutiques feature a collection of toys, including action figures, R/C vehicles, role-play items, and play sets, based on the film and its Marvel Super Hero all-stars. Two assortments of Marvel Universe Collector Base action figures are exclusively available at Toys “R” Us stores and online.
