Director Joe Russo along with "Avengers: Infinity War" cast members Robert Downey Jr., Benedict Cumberbatch and Karen Gillan revealed that the Soul Stone, which the supervillain Thanos is searching for to rule the galaxy, is here.
The team of the superhero ensemble, ahead of its release, assembled here on Monday to unveil the stone at an event where they met around 7,000 fans from Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, India, Malaysia, China and Russia.
Then the Hollywood stars walked on the purple carpet, which was probably inspired by the colour of Thanos, to take selfies with the fans, who sported Avengers masks or were armed with their toys and posters.
"I know you have been waiting patiently for a few hours or more and some of you all day long," Joe, one half of the Russo brothers, told the screaming fans.
The director, accompanied by his wife and daughters, seemed to be loving it as he patiently signed autographs and posed in front of thousands of cameras.
He was later joined by Gillan, who plays Nebula in the forthcoming Marvel Studios' film.
"I shaved off all my hair which was very long. Marvel guys are amazing. They made me a wig of my own hair which I sometimes wear it for comedic purposes. It's really creepy," she said on the stage facing her fans.
Then a portal was created, just like the one in the Cumberbatch-starrer "Doctor Strange". This time it was done without a sling ring.
Looking at it, the actor said: "That was truly terrifying."
The British actor, whose love for India is not unknown, joined his hands in a 'namaste" to greet the audience. This comes days after he was slammed by his Korean fans when he mistakenly bowed the wrong way twice during his stay in Seoul.
"Tom Holland is 21 years old but he is much wiser," said Cumberatch, whose blue coat and pants matched his eye colour.
As he shared the stage with Cumberbatch, he joked: "Sorry Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk) the science bro thing is over, it's now about the Batch."
