Ten themed galleries transport visitors across ten years of Marvel Cinematic Universe
(Singapore) – From June 9, Marvel Studios: Ten Years of Heroes exhibition will be transporting visitors into the dynamic Marvel Cinematic Universe as they relive a decade of epic Marvel Studios moments. Visitors can look forward to experiencing Marvel Studios’ storytelling as they wander through the inner sanctums of Iron Man’s Stark Tower, witness the spectacular sights of Wakanda, traverse Doctor Strange’s light portal, see the world through the eyes of Ant-Man and The Wasp, and more.
Marvel Studios: Ten Years of Heroes exhibition is part of a three-year collaboration between Singapore Tourism Board and The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia to bring unique and fun thematic events to Singapore. With ten themed sections, Marvel Studios: Ten Years of Heroes begins at the first gallery space by presenting the MARVEL films released over the last decade, providing visitors with the opportunity to relive key moments from all 19 MARVEL movies. The second gallery shines a spotlight on the beloved Iron Man, a key character in this year’s highest-grossing movie, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War, with visitors able to enter Stark Tower and head into Tony Stark’s workshop and witness the evolution of armors of Iron Man via projection mapping.
The story of the First Avenger Captain America and his shields will be shared via 3D holograms in the third zone. Taking a scene from Marvel’s The Avengers, visitors will be able to view a model of the S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier and will be transported into the fourth exhibition gallery of Thor’s world via the Bifrost. Upon entering Sakaar’s magnificent gladiator arena, they can be part of the iconic battle between Thor and Hulk from Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok.
The battle ends as visitors head to the fifth area of the exhibition, entering Yondu’s ship (featured in Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) and attempt to avoid Yondu’s flying arrow and interact and dance with baby Groot via digital screens. The sixth gallery recreates the mystic environment of Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange with visitors transported to the New York Sanctum Sanctorum as seen in the film, with interactive displays which will allow them to bend reality or create portals.
The Panther cave welcomes visitors into the seventh exhibition gallery and the futurist utopia of Wakanda. The eighth zone introduces the ant-sized/microscopic world of Scott Lang/Ant-Man and features oversized props amidst lab equipment in an area inspired by Hank Pym’s lab from the new film Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man & The Wasp.
In the ninth gallery, visitors are able to activate Thanos’ infinity gauntlet. Each of the known Infinity Stones will be introduced and activated in an interactive display. The exhibition culminates with the tenth gallery where visitors can ‘step’ on the icon of their favorite Super Hero with the use of Augmented Reality (AR) technology and watch specially created animation appear on the screen. Photo-moments with guests’ favorite Super Hero are available on exit.
“Everything we do at Disney revolves around our content and providing audiences with the coolest experiences with their favorite Disney, MARVEL, STAR WARS stories and characters,” said Amit Malhotra, Country Head, The Walt Disney Company Singapore and Malaysia. “This Marvel Studios: Ten Years of Heroes exhibition for Singapore celebrates ten incredible years of blockbuster entertainment from MARVEL and provides fans with a completely innovative, multi- platform experience which will reconnect them with their favorite MARVEL movie moments.”
Marvel Studios: Ten Years of Heroes is developed by The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia and Beast Kingdom; organized by SPACElogic and supported by Singapore Tourism Board, ArtScience Museum and Victory Hill Exhibitions.
Marvel Studios: Ten Years of Heroes will also include engaging displays curated by ArtScience Museum, which highlight the science, technology, art and cultural stories behind each Marvel Studios’ film. Visitors to the exhibition will be treated to interesting fun facts such as the Norse mythology in the Thor movies and how real life scientists have created artificial elements comparable to the one created by Tony Stark. Inspired by the geometry and tessellating imagery that result from Doctor Strange’s reality bending, one of M.C. Escher’s most famous works – his lithograph Convex and Concave (1955) which illustrates the principles of tessellating imagery, will be on display in this exhibition.
Marvel Studios: Ten Years of Heroes exhibition will run from June 9 to September 30, 2018. Tickets are now available at all Marina Bay Sands box offices and website. For more information, please visit www.marvelexhibition.sg.
