Marvel movie fans, get ready to assemble for the arrival of the Avengers in Singapore on April 16.

Avengers: Infinity War cast members Robert Downey Jr, Benedict Cumberbatch, Karen Gillan and co-director Joe Russo will gather for a red carpet fan event at the Marina Bay Sands.

“We are privileged to work with The Walt Disney Company again for their Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War talent tour.

Singapore has become a base of sorts for promoting Marvel movies. Back in 2014, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and director James Gunn flew in for a press meet for Guardians Of The Galaxy. In 2016, actors Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie came to Singapore to promote Captain America: Civil War. Last year, the new Spider-Man actor Tom Holland swung by the island for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Avengers: Infinity War is set to open at cinemas nationwide on April 25. It will see almost all the Marvel superheroes (including the gang from Black Panther, Guardians Of The Galaxy and Dr Strange) team up to take down super villain Thanos, in a showdown that will decide the fate of humanity.

Mahesh Samat, EVP and managing director of The Walt Disney Company (South Asia) believe fans are in for a treat in conjunction with the 10th year of Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“This is the 10th year of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and we are happy to bring our South Asia fans even closer to their heroes. This region has an ever-expanding fan base for Marvel and continues to be a part of everyday lives of people. We thank our Marvel fans and partners like Marina Bay Sands for being a part of this celebration,” Mahesh stated.

The Avengers: Infinity War red carpet event in Singapore is free and open to all. However, access to the event is available on a first-come first served basis. Attendees will be subjected to security checks. Information about exact, time and admission details will be released on April 2 via www.marinabaysands.com/avengers.
