It’s thrilling to watch superheroes unite in high-stakes movies, but it’s even better seeing them come together in real life—and for a good cause.
Fox News anchor Shannon Bream reached out to her followers on Twitter Sunday looking for anyone who could help her with a larger-than-life request. She needed help getting in touch with one of the Avengers to see if any of them would chat with a young boy who was sick and dying.
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!— Shannon Bream (@ShannonBream) March 25, 2018
Bream’s request spread online at the speed of light as several people offered leads for Bream to follow. Numerous actors who appear in Avengers: Infinity War responded, including Chris Evans, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, and Benedict Wong, but soon enough other heroes were emerging with their own offers to help. It didn’t matter if that hero was an Avenger, part of the newly formed X-Force, an Inhuman, or an upcoming DC superhero. They all wanted to help however they could.
More than a day after Bream made her request, those heroes are still assembling for a good cause.
What’s his name?— Chloe Bennet (@chloebennet) March 26, 2018
Happy to! DM me— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) March 26, 2018
I’m more of a “Reserve Avenger”. But happy to help. DM me.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 26, 2018
I'm the purple one. DM me.— Paul Bettany (@Paul_Bettany) March 26, 2018
Just off work now Suited up and ready— Jeremy Renner (@Renner4Real) March 27, 2018
According to Bream, several Avengers have already reached out to Emilio and others are planning to reach out soon.
This is the kind of thing that restores faith in humanity – three Avengers' messages have made it to Emilio, two more are on the way. Again – huge thank you to @jaketapper for helping to get this thing off the ground – and to everyone who RT'd and shared contacts. God bless! https://t.co/lEM94eyEWE— Shannon Bream (@ShannonBream) March 26, 2018
