FaZe Clan x Batman
FaZe Clan is no stranger to merch collaborations. Just before the deal with DC Comics, the org announced an apparel deal with OpTic Gaming, one of their long-time rivals in the Call of Duty League. In addition to the comic book, FaZe will release apparel featuring the org's name and the famed Batman logo. The collection will feature a hoodie, t-shirts, jerseys and a long sleeve shirt. Finally, there will be keycaps and a mousepad with FaZe Clan's iconic camo design surrounding the Batman logo.
FaZe Rain said in a recent statement how much the partnership means to him. “This collaboration is extremely special to us because we all grew up on Batman and DC" he explained, "and to see ourselves as comic book Super Heroes is a dream come true.”
DC general manager Daniel Cherry III said “DC is excited to partner with FaZe Clan to share this custom Batman story with their amazing gaming fans.” Furthermore, he said he hopes this collaboration will bring new fans into the DC universe.
