In an announcement Thursday, Marvel Entertainment announced that it has partnered with Orbis Blockchain Technologies to issue intangible tokens, or NFTs, and digital collectibles in the VeVe Marketplace app launching later this year. According to the entertainment company, the NFT will feature digital collectibles and comics that Marvel fans will be able to shop and view in virtual showrooms.

“We hope to push the boundaries of what Marvel fans can be, based on personalized, interactive digital collectibles that, with the help of NFT, allow fans to collect, share, and enjoy in ways never before possible,” Vice Marvel’s said. Head of Business Development and Strategy Daniel Fink.

All of Marvel’s digital holdings are engraved on the blockchain and made available to users to buy and sell to others on the VeVe secondary market using the Gems in-app (GEM) token. VeVe accepts credit card payments for tokens and already offers digital collectibles with ratings from DC Comics, Star Trek, and other perks. Some of Marvel’s most popular characters include Wolverine, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Captain America.
