Rejoice, DC fans!
Your favourite superheroes are coming to Malaysia, along with their gadgets, costumes, and futuristic vehicles, for a full-fledged exhibition at Tropicana Gardens Mall, Petaling Jaya.
Calling it ‘The World of DC Exhibition’, the limited-time-only expo is not something any comic book fans can miss.
According to WOW Event Asia, the official organiser, the exhibition is the first of its kind in Asia.
Yes, citizens and travellers in Malaysia are among the luckiest people on earth to witness superheroes and supervillains, such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Joker, and Harley Quinn, among others, gracing our non-fictitious world.

SAYS was invited to a coffee talk with the organiser of the exhibition at Tropicana Gardens Mall yesterday, 30 November, and we estimated that the exhibition hall is about 35,000 sq ft big
That’s about forty badminton courts in size!
“‘The World of DC Exhibition’ will be held at the Convention Centre on Level 3A of Tropicana Gardens Mall, the retail arm of Tropicana Corporation Berhad, [and it] will cover merchandise stores, as well as seven distinct zones focusing on specific characters and themes,” it said in a press release.
Visitors can expect to be amazed for at least 45 minutes to an hour by the life-size statues of iconic DC characters.
We were told that the zone reserved for Superman will not only feature the DC powerhouse himself, but also a Kryptonian scout ship and Superman’s monument (as seen in the Justice League movie).
As for Batman’s zone, it will occupy the biggest space (duh!). You can expect to see the caped crusader’s Batmobile, Nightcrawler, his suit and weapon closet, and a bat-signal projection lamp.
Without spoiling too much for you guys, the exhibition will also feature Suicide Squad and Birds Of Prey supervillains
We were told that the supervillain zones will be incredibly Insta-worthy due to the premise of the movies, which is heavy with punk-like motifs.
There will also be several virtual reality (VR) zones. In one of them, visitors can experience being compelled under Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth.
An extensive collection of Justice League‘s artworks and sculptures will also be on display.
