PLANO, Texas — In line with the premiere of "Marvel's The Avengers," Dr Pepper has unveiled a new commercial, limited-edition collectible cans that feature members of the heroic team and an online game.

The new Dr Pepper commercial dramatizes the potential for anyone to be a hero and features a group of one-of-a-kind people assembling to impress comic book legend Stan Lee, the company said. In addition to the commercial, a collection of eight limited-edition Dr Pepper “Marvel's The Avengers” collectible cans now are available at retailers nationwide.
