Singapore has a part to play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, kinda sorta.
Okay, let us rephrase: A Singapore-inspired island has a part to play in the upcoming Marvel/Disney+ mini-series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan.
Observant (read: hardcore) fans — like Luke Hatcher — came to this conclusion after they spotted something familiar in recently leaked pictures from The Falcon and the Winter Soldier set in Atlanta, Georgia.

See the red insignia on the wall the left of the ladder? It's the flag of the fictional island of Madripoor. (Noticed the similarities it has with ours?) And if you know your Marvel lore: Madripoor is inspired by Singapore and its past as a sanctuary for pirates.
