Whichever side you’re on – Dark Knight or Man of Steel – fans of DC Comics are in for a treat at CapitaLand malls, Singapore’s largest shopping mall network.
CapitaLand malls in Singapore are exclusively rolling out an extensive line-up of hero-themed activities to delight shoppers both young and old as they await the most anticipated action-adventure feature film of the year, DC Comics’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, coming to cinemas 24 March 2016 from Warner Bros. Pictures.
Highlights include displays of 1:1 life-size statues of Armoured Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman as well as a replica of the latest Batmobile. Shoppers can also look forward to role-play game stations, movie-inspired delicacies, exclusive collectibles, fan art workshops and many other thematic activities for an unforgettable experience.
Ms Teresa Teow, Head of Retail Management, Singapore, CapitaLand Mall Asia, said: “With our prime locations and strong positioning, CapitaLand malls have long been an integral part of their communities in Singapore, serving as retail and lifestyle destinations for shoppers. As DC Comics fans here and around the world anticipate the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we are delighted to offer Singapore’s largest network of malls for our shoppers to join in the global excitement surrounding this movie event of the year. Besides catching the movie screening in cinema halls in CapitaLand malls, shoppers can take part in a wide variety of thematic activities in our malls for an immersive DC Comics Super Hero experience of unrivalled scale and variety.”
Get close to the heroes of Gotham City and Metropolis
From today until 3 April, Bugis+ Level 2 Atrium will transform into a battleground for Batman v Superman. Set in a high-octane battle scene between the heroes of Gotham City and Metropolis, 1:1 life-size statues of Armoured Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman – measuring 2.2 metres in height – stand majestically, providing an Instagram-worthy photo backdrop for shoppers to snap away.
After taking photos, shoppers can live out their hero fantasies at the motion-controlled game zone which immerses players in different battle scenes from the movie. Supporters of Batman can experience the thrill of hurling the Dark Knight’s signature batarang weapon at villains, while fans of Superman can use The Man of Steel’s heat vision to clear obstacles while flying around Earth. Shoppers who are undecided about their favourite hero can try both game stations at Bugis+ from today until 3 April, and at Funan DigitaLife Mall from 14 to 20 March.
Take photos with the latest Batmobile replica
Batman’s sidekick Robin once said, “No policeman’s going to give the Batmobile a ticket.” Given the iconic status of Batmobile, fans of the Caped Crusader should not miss the chance to pose with this lean and mean fighting machine when the replica of the newest Batmobile featured in the movie vrooms into two CapitaLand malls.
The fully armoured and equipped Batmobile replica will be exhibited at Clarke Quay from today until 20 March, and at Westgate from 22 March to 7 April. If taking photos of this iconic vehicle is not enough, shoppers who spend a minimum of S$60 at Westgate can take home a complimentary instant print of themselves with the Batmobile replica in an exclusive photo sleeve.
Recharge with delicacies fit for heroes at Clarke Quay
Even heroes need to recharge after fighting villains and saving the world! In conjunction with the movie launch, selected dining establishments in Clarke Quay have launched specially-designed thematic dishes and drinks for fans to declare their allegiance to their heroes.
Throughout the month of March, The Butchers Club, will present its signature burger in two unique colour combinations to satisfy fans from both camps. The ‘B burger’ is served with charcoal buns, while the ‘S burger’ is served with a combination of blue and red buns. Party lovers can play the hero dress-up game and attend Batman v Superman costume parties organised by f.Club, Maziga Café and Club and Highlander Bar & Restaurant in Clarke Quay. Fans who come dressed up as their favourite hero enjoy a complimentary drink at these bars and stand to win attractive prizes.
Bring home exclusive collectibles
From today until 3 April, shoppers can redeem an exclusive Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice collectible with a minimum spending of S$180 over a maximum of three combined receipts on the same day at 16 CapitaLand malls.

Two lucky winners will each receive a pair of air tickets to Hollywood in Los Angeles, United States, and enjoy an exclusive Warner Bros. VIP studio tour.
