The diminutive Hyundai Veloster won't get just a small chase scene in the coming Ant-Man and the Wasp superhero flick.
Hyundai says the quirky hot hatch, which could use some blockbuster exposure after recently hitting stores, will treat audiences to one of the longest and most complex chase scenes in Marvel history. The film hits U.S. theaters Friday, July 6.
Superhero movie fans are accustomed to seeing luxury brands dominate the screen, but the flame-emblazoned Veloster has wrested away the spotlight this time as Hyundai looks to get in front of a younger, male-skewing audience.
Hyundai is capitalizing on the moment by packaging the Veloster with two other key models that'll get cameos: the new Kona subcompact crossover that went on sale this spring and the redesigned 2019 Santa Fe midsize crossover, due this summer.
