4 of Hollywood’s leading men are proving what superheroism really is.
A Fox News TV anchor made an appeal to the Twitterverse on behalf of a terminally ill little boy whose dying wish is to meet one of Marvel’s Avengers.
“[Emilio’s] uncle sat next to me on a flight a few weeks ago,” said Shannon Bream. “He reached out yesterday, and I don’t really have Hollywood friends but I said I’d give it a try. I sent the tweet and said a prayer.”
Need your help Twitterverse – trying to help a young boy who is dying. He probably has just days and all he want is a greeting from one of the Avengers. If you have a celeb connection, please let me know. Otherwise, could you help out with a RT? Thank you in advance!

The tweet proved to be as good as a call from Tony Stark himself, as Chris Evans and Paul Rudd — aka Captain America and Ant-Man — responded within hours by sending videos for Emilio.
And although not technically an Avenger, Deadpool star, Ryan Reynolds, offered his services too.
I’m more of a “Reserve Avenger”. But happy to help. DM me.

Following suit was Thor actor, Zachary Levi, who promised to provide his best impression of Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and Guardians of the Galaxy star, Chris Pratt.
I’m not technically an Avenger, but I’d be happy to record a video for the little man and do my best impressions of @ChrisEvans @prattprattpratt @chrishemsworth or any other Chris if necessary. 🙏 Where can I/we send these messages, and what’s his name?! https://t.co/jBTOepXzOf

We think the real Avengers have some serious competition!
