Marvel and Funko unveil animated shorts

As part of the collaboration, Marvel and Funko have developed three shorts, including Spellbound, Bait N Switch and Chimichangas.

Marvel and Funko have teamed up to develop a series of animated shorts to help bring Marvel's most popular superheroes and villains to life.

The first video to launch is Spellbound, with three other videos to follow in the coming weeks.

In the first video, viewers can watch Iron Man and Spider-Man fight against the evil Loki and his mind-controlling scepter.

“Telling Marvel stories in the Funko Pop! aesthetic is a special kind of magic unlike anything we’ve ever done. These shorts are both hilarious and action-packed – and irresistibly adorable too,” said Cort Lane, SVP of animation and family entertainment at Marvel.

“Really, I think all audiences will love them.”

The next two animated shorts are set to roll out later this month, with Bait N Switch premiering on December 7th and Chimichangas launching December 14th.
