“I never would have thought we’d be doing a collaboration with DC,” says FaZe Rain. “This collaboration is extremely special to us because we all grew up on Batman and DC and to see ourselves as comic book Super Heroes is a dream come true.”
“It’s been an honor to work alongside such an iconic brand like DC,” says FaZe Clan Head of Marketing Xavier Ramos. “We loved the idea of taking on a new life form and creating something tangible for our fans for this special collaboration. To watch FaZe Clan transcend gaming into traditional entertainment over the years has been nothing short of extraordinary and we can’t wait for our fans to see all of the incredible projects we have coming up.”
“DC is excited to partner with FaZe Clan to share this custom Batman story with their amazing gaming fans,” says DC GM Daniel Cherry III. “This partnership is a great opportunity to invite even more fans into the iconic DC universe.”
