Zomato has always been at the forefront of innovations, for its services as well as marketing. We are proud of this association and are delighted to have formed such an exclusive and never done before collaboration in India.”
Sahibjeet Singh Sawhney, Marketing Head, Zomato commented on the integration, saying, “At Zomato, we believe in moving onwards and upwards. Today, we are excited to tell you about our next stop i.e. Hollywood! You will see Zomato in the movie Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, releasing on 1st June. It’s a one-of its kind integration – for the first time, an Indian company will be showcased in a Hollywood film, globally. Thanks to the Indian arm of Sony Pictures Releasing International for the collaboration.

To showcase this integration, Zomato has curated an array of promotional activities, including adverts on out-of-home billboards and sky buses in four cities (Bangalore, Kolkata, Delhi, and Mumbai), a dedicated Spider-Man crystal on the Zomato application, and animated videos across various digital platforms.
Zomato’s association with ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ represents a significant milestone in the company’s journey and highlights the global recognition of an Indian company in the world of entertainment. Zomato hopes to continue engaging with its customers on new and innovative levels.
‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ has been creating unparalleled buzz in its run-up to the release. The film will be released in 10 languages in India.
