If you’re a Spidey fan, the Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC 2018) on 8 and 9 September at the Marina Bay Sands Expo is spinning a web just for you with a special appearance of Spider-Man and Venom at this year’s show. The focus will be on Venom, who’s having his own solo movie starring Tom Hardy coming out on October 4.
Fans who wish to merge with alien supervillain Venom and gain cool supernatural abilities can do so at the booth dedicated to the anti-hero. The iconic black slime, a characteristic of symbiotes like Venom will be available for fans to play with. Though I’m not sure if that’s advisable …
Sony Pictures Entertainment will also be launching a special Facebook camera filter where Venom’s alien life form takes over the faces of viewers and becomes one with them. The first 1000 visitors who post their Venom-ous selfies on Sony’s Facebook page will receive a limited edition Venom mask-perfectly handy for keeping nasty viruses at bay. (Terms and conditions here.)
INTO THE SPIDERVERSE
But if you’re not a fan of the symbiote, a team of Singapore-based Spidey superans, Spiderverse SG, will be at the show to celebrate the upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse animated movie, also coming out later this year. At the booth, attendees can take photographs at the specially constructed 3D photo-corner and pose with cosplayers from the Spiderverse club.
The Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention is held on 8-9 September at the Marina Bay Sands Expo.
