In cinemas in the U.S. over Memorial Day weekend, Marvel Comics will be running ads for Miracleman comics, according to Bleeding Cool. Noting that it's likely this will fuel speculation of a film adaptation for the character (which makes sense given the decision to refer to mutants as "miracles" for legal reasons in Captain America: The Winter Soldier), the site reports that an ad will run in 365 cinemas ahead of PG-13 films and that Marvel have told retailers that it is expected to be viewed by two-and-a-half million people about ten minutes before previews. Singling out a particular comic is unusual for this kind of practice, although Marvel has been getting more aggressive with mainstream media advertising since the launch of Marvel NOW!.
