The posters are rolled up, and feature images of Ant-Man and The Wasp with the Contest of Champions logo. There is also a real working magnifying glass that helps enlarge the posters and article, and tweezers. The tote bag can hold everything included in the above image, and has the look and feel of a real tote bag.
With Ant-Man in theaters July 6th, toy companies that offer Marvel are taking advantage of this film as both Ant-Man and The Wasp are now taking their turn to shine on the red carpet. As Kabam is offering both characters in the video game starting July 5th, fans will have a chance to play these heroic Avengers, as Marvel fans know them best as part of the team.
