The cast of Avengers: Infinity War dropped by Singapore last weekend for the premiere of the movie Marvel fans have waited 10 years to watch. Good news? We were there and we’ve got the exclusive scoop on all things Iron Man, Nebula, Doctor Strange and even Hawkeye!

First things first, for those of you who haven’t bought your tickets to watch Avengers: Infinity War when it comes out next Wednesday, just a heads up that you’ll probably have to wait till next month to catch it because most theaters have already sold out. I mean, can you imagine the spoilers that would’ve already been out by then? You’ll probably need to log out of social media for a solid week to avoid accidentally reading anything at this point.

Speaking of spoilers, did you know that Marvel producers had to create fake scripts just to prevent the real one from leaking? Did you also know that the entire cast was not permitted to read the full script? Talk about going to extreme lengths to keep us from working out the plot. I might have had the opportunity to watch a 30-minute clip from the movie last weekend when I was in Singapore and I still couldn’t figure out how the ending was going to play out (even after replaying everything in my head 100 times over and over again). Nonetheless, here’s my verdict:

  • It is going to BLOW your fan girl / boy mind when your fave characters from different Marvel movies interact with each other. You’d think that you’re prepared for it, but no one actually is and it’s probably going to change your life (or at least leave you with goosebumps throughout the movie).
  • Be rest assured that the writers did a great job with the script this time around (not like they did a bad job last round but this one’s way better!). Expect full banter and humour from the characters and don’t be afraid to laugh out loud with the rest of the cinema-goers.

If you follow us on Instagram, you would’ve already viewed the highlights I posted on our Insta-stories. But if not, I’ve done the job of compiling the best bits for you!

Skip to 3:55 and 4:10 if you’d like to hear Robert Downey Jr. crack jokes; 4:29 to hear Robert, Karen and Benedict explain how / why they accepted the role of Iron Man, Nebula and Doctor Strange; 6:47 to see what Robert and Benedict think about Tony Stark and Stephen Strange working together given their Type A personalities; 9:37 to watch Director Joe Russo justify the absence of Jeremy Renner (aka Hawkeye) in Infinity War.
