If you thought that Infinity War signalled the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you might be happy to hear that it couldn’t be further from the truth. By now you might have heard that the studio has the next batch of films all lined up and ready to go, but that’s not all.
After delighting us on the big screen for a decade, there’s now a fitting way to celebrate the MCU’s accomplishments – right here in Kuala Lumpur! Get ready to enter the multi-sensory world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at the Marvel Studios: Ten Years of Heroes exhibition at Pavilion KL!
Organised by The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia, this specially-curated exhibition is the first Marvel Studios exhibition in Malaysia and is together with Crave Alive and Beast Kingdom. The exhibition explores the journeys of the MCU’s beloved characters, from Iron Man to Captain Marvel.
From 28 June to 27 October 2019, you’ll be able to relive the past decade of Marvel Studios’ storytelling and come up close with original props, costumes, and concept art from selected films. That’s right, the actual props that were used in the movies and that your favourite actors touched! Expect to see props like Iron Man’s arc reactor from Avengers: Endgame, Iron Man’s Infinity Gauntlet, Doctor Strange’s Eye of Agamotto, costumes from the films and more.
Besides that, 10 immersive galleries chronicling the valiant adventures of their favorite Super Heroes, featuring vignettes from the first Marvel Studios’ Iron Man to the record-shattering hit, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame.
Our Features and Lifestyle Writer (and ardent MCU fan) Tammy was there at the launch of the exhibit, and here’s what she had to say:
“My advice? Go with friends who are as passionate about the Marvel Cinematic Universe as you because it’s never fun fangirling alone. One cool part of the exhibition was getting to examine all the original movie props and costumes up close. Honestly, it was just a crazy overwhelming feeling to see all the things I’ve grown up watching on the big screen right there in front of me.
That said, while I loved how you could still see the dents on Captain America’s USO shield and the detailed suit work of Black Panther, my favourite moment of the whole exhibition was gazing at the life-sized Marvel Studios class photo wall (that includes 80 of its stars and filmmakers) that was displayed at the exit of the exhibition. I’ve seen pictures of it online when it was first released, but this was just on a whole ‘nother level as the faces were as big as mine and I just felt emotional and proud knowing that at one point, all the people I love from different movies were in the same room together to take that picture in the first place.”
Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir was also there yesterday to officiate the launch, where he also dropped the bomb that his favourite MCU character is… Thanos. We’ll let you sit on that for a while.
