‘Captain Marvel’ stars Brie Larson and Gemma Chan had a pretty lit night out at Newton Food Centre

Screw Valentine’s Day — today marks a far more exciting day in the realm of geekery in Singapore. We’re talking, of course, about the Captain Marvel Fan Event today at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center. Totally free and certainly open to public, the red carpet fan event will see the Hollywood likes of Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and Gemma Chan (Minn-erva) gracing the event together with flick’s directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.


Even before the event, the stars were all out to go higher, further, faster in town when they arrived on our shores yesterday. Larson, in particular, was definitely thrilled for her first ever visit in Singapore.


The lady who’ll be playing the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most powerful hero yet went straight to Joo Chiat’s Peranakan joint Guan Hoe Soon to try out the local delicacies. Larson was nothing but smiles after noshing on ayam buah keluak, otah, assam fish and chendol.

Then it was off to visit the Art Science Museum with her hairstylist Bryce Scarlett before marveling (hur hur) at the waterfall at the Cloud Forest in Gardens By The Bay.

Chan, on the other hand, simply chilled at Marina Bay Sands, watching the sunset at the infinity pool. The lady who’ll be playing Minn-Erva (spoilers, she might turn into a baddie against Captain Marvel) remembers how MBS played a role in Crazy Rich Asians.

When the two actresses met up, it was adorable.



Together, they went hard at Newton Food Centre, where copious amounts of chili crab, satay and barbecued wings were had.

Of course, the feast at Newton wouldn’t be complete without the standard beer tower. Seemed like a pretty lit girls night out.

Samuel L. Jackson, on the other hand, simply went shopping at ION Orchard Mall.
