Captain America coming to Singapore
So it is confirmed.
Team Captain America will be coming down to Singapore.
Marvel had initially teased fans in Singapore with a less-than-subtle Facebook post on March 21.
Less than subtle because the Facebook post showed Marina Bay Sands being superimposed on Captain America's gleaming shield.
Then on Monday (March 28), March Marvel confirmed that the cast and director of Marvel's upcoming blockbuster, Marvel's Captain America: Civil War will be here in Singapore.
Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, as well as Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier) and Anthony Mackie (Falcon), will be making an appearance at Marina Bay Sands on April 21.
The blue carpet event will be held at the skating rink at Marina Bay Sands.
In a press statement, Marvel also said that fans would be able to participate in a range of activities, the details of which will be released on their Facebook page at a later date.

The movie sets Captain America on a head-to-head collision with Iron Man.
Both characters are, of course, part of the Avengers team.
Both characters have clashed in previous instalments of the Avengers, with Captain America seeing Tony Stark's freewheeling nature as a character flaw.
In the first Avengers, for example, they almost came to blows when Captain America accused Stark of not being proper hero material. ,
This time, it is serious enough for them to openly wage war on each other.
Both characters clash over political pressure for a governing body to oversee and direct the Avengers.
Surprisingly, it is Steve Rogers (Captain America) who wants to remain free to defend humanity without interference from the government.
Tony Stark, on the other hand, supports oversight and accountability by the government.
Both men's refusal to budge over this issue means that there can only be one be one outcome: war.
Marvel's Captain America: Civil War will open in Singapore on April 28.
