The shared focus on global users and customers’ emotional attachment that both brands enjoy make the partnership a natural fit.
Commening on the partnership, Steven Wang, Chief Marketing Officer of Honor disclosed that the company really want to bring our brand to life in ways that appeal to millennials. We are excited to partner with a global brand such as Marvel, which will inspire viewers the world over, in much the same way that Honor aims to empower and inspire its customers.

Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange”, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, tells the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange who, in his quest for healing after a horrific car accident, finds powerful magic in a mysterious place.
“Doctor Strange” emerged as a natural candidate for a partnership with Honor. The values the title character exhibits – resolve, courage to chart his own course – and the particular relationship he enjoys with technology make him a fitting ambassador for Honor, which strives to empower digital natives through technology.
Marvel’s rich ecosystem of colorful, tech-savvy and inspirational characters proved the perfect backdrop to showcase Honor’s technology, which inspires users the world over to dream big, stay young at heart, and be brave — as encapsulated by its “For the Brave” tagline.
Millennials are obviously a key demographic group for us, and partnering with Honor allows us to stay at the forefront of technology and to experiment with avenues through which we can reach out to them.
Honor 8, its latest flagship phone, crystallizes this very vision. With its advanced dual-lens camera system, fingerprint sensor with a programmable Smart Key, and premium, light-reflecting layered glass design, the smartphone extends the realm of possibilities for consumers. Honor 8 is available in Sapphire Blue, Pearl White, and Midnight Black.
Doctor Strange will screen in the UK on October 25, and in the US on November 4. Honor will also be actively promoting this partnership in countries including Russia, the US, Germany, the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Finland, Poland, Czech, Sweden, Serbia, Malaysia, the United Aram Emirates, Kuwait and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.We don’t have any information as to when Doctor Strange will arrive in India.
Supported by Honor, a red carpet premiere with representatives from Honor and stars from Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange” takes place on October 20, followed by the Science of the Marvel Cinematic Universe event on October 27 to celebrate the science and technology behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A branded theme for the Honor 8 smartphone will also be launched globally.
