Fanboys Assemble: Iron Man, Thor Spiderman, The Hulk, and Loki on the Red Carpet in Shanghai Tomorrow

Apr 18, 2018 | 15:24 Wed
The superheroes who play Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth Tom Holland, Mark Ruffalo and Tom Hiddletydiddelty, will be attending a full-on media blowout red carpet event at Disneytown this Thursday, to promote their upcoming documentary, Avengers: Infinity War, releasing next month in China. And it's open to the public. That includes you. More details, plus where to watch the all-day 360 degree livestreams, after the jump.

Seems a little irresponsible, honestly. In the face of the inevitable fan scrum, Hulk might break character as mild-mannered 90s actor Mark Ruffalo and trash the place. Robert Downey Jr. might try to impose a fascist fan registration scheme. Tom might try to stab Chris again. Marvel in-jokes! Update: Thor is sick. He has been replaced by Underoos. Spiderboy. Spidertwerp.

The red carpet will take place at 3.30pm on Thursday, April 19, on the main strip that leads down to the Walt Disney Grand Theatre. And yes, it's open to the public.

According to a press release on Disney's WeChat, the four superheroes will attend dressed as their regular Hollywood-megastar personas, and there'll be a super-tightly controlled preview of the Infinity War movie, which will be releasing in China on May 11, two weeks after its April 27 North America release.

Since it's bound to be absolutely packed, 35 major Chinese media outlets are livestreaming the whole affair with 360 degree cameras, including MTime and Youku.com.

The press release warns that you shouldn't buy tickets to the event from scalpers. On account of how there aren't any.

If you're really just totally incapable of waiting another month, you can rewatch the Infinity War trailer (VPN on) for like the seventh time.
