Avengers unite to help out terminally ill boy


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.

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.


According to Bream, several Avengers have already reached out to Emilio and others are planning to reach out soon.
