Marvel extends Halloween costume deal with Disguise

New lines to be based on Thor 2 and Iron Man 3 among others.

Halloween costume and accessories specialist, Disguise has extended its deal with Marvel to offer a new range of outfits based on its key properties.

New costumes will be available for the likes of Thor 2 and Iron Man 3, as well as The Amazing Spider-man.

Disguise currently has the rights to produce Halloween items based on Marvel's Avengers, Thor, Captain America, Iron Man and Wolverine among others.

"This expanded agreement is significant because it essentially allows Disguise to create Halloween costumes and accessories based on the entire universe of Marvel characters," said Joe Anton, president of Disguise. "This is an exciting deal for Disguise, especially as we move into our 25th anniversary year."

Paul Gitter, SVP, Marvel Licensing, added: "The Halloween season is an important time of the year for Marvel. Our fan base loves to role play and have the chance to experience being the super heroes they admire. Expanding our relationship with this true industry giant affords us the opportunity to further the huge presence of our brands at retail during this critical retail season."
