Robert Downey Jr. And Chris Hemsworth Show #CapForStrat Support From AGE OF ULTRON Set

Stratford Caldecott and his daughter now have support from both Iron Man and Thor, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth, with the former Marvel star sharing a graceful superhero selfie on Twitter

As reported earlier, Sophie Caldecott has completed her mission in finding a way for her father, Stratford Caldecott, who's sadly dying of cancer, to see not only Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but also a number of selfies from Marvel superhero supporters.  Now Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. has tweeted a photo from the London set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring himself and co-star Chris Hemsworth, who is seemingly still in his Thor hair-and-makeup. "When we started out on Monday evening, all we wanted to do was to make it possible for my father to see The Winter Soldier and maybe to get a few superhero selfies to make him chuckle," said Sophie Caldecott of her heartbreaking cause. "In under 48 hours our mission was accomplished, and then… we kind of went viral. I have to admit something right now: as a bit of perfectionist, it really bugs me that I can’t stay on Twitter all the time and thank each and every one of you who has tweeted the Marvel actors for us, sent messages of love and support, and sent us your sweet pictures for dad. But please know that our family are so very grateful, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, even if I haven’t said so directly."

Someone else made the point before at Marvel should do a private screening of "Guardians of the Galaxy" for this guy. I think that would be a kind gesture on top of what the actors have already been doing.

RDJr is looking old.
McNyagano - 5/16/2014, 7:00 AM
Is that a wig Hermsworth is wearing? I was hoping they'd keep the hair he had in Thor: The Dark World.
Bekss - 5/16/2014, 7:07 AM
are we expecting a new suit for Thor?
Because it's not like he can get clothes like that in Midgard.
Just asking
DefcoN - 5/16/2014, 7:09 AM
What a massive support!
Bekss - 5/16/2014, 7:12 AM
I'm sure Marvel will do more than give him a dvd
Tdi7457 - 5/16/2014, 7:18 AM
I guess ScarJo doesn't care Nout this dying man.

That seems like a stupid thing to say. What do you even get out of saying that?
YeezusWept - 5/16/2014, 7:33 AM

Could you imagine Thor in an Avengers graphic tee and a pair of Levi's, still speaking in Asgardian dialect?
Jollem - 5/16/2014, 7:42 AM
how 'bout we stop making a dozen different smartphones every year that all do the same thing and get more people working on something that matters
Gusto - 5/16/2014, 7:45 AM

That's so Miley of them.
Bekss - 5/16/2014, 7:47 AM
lol that would be really weird.
I was thinking he could have the same costume as in TDW, that's the only thing he had when he went back. Not even a clean pair of underwear

@Marvel Real Heros

Is RDJ standing on a box? Hemsworth is freaking tall, so he must be.
XelCorp - 5/16/2014, 8:17 AM
Yo wth happened to my comment?
ruadh - 5/16/2014, 8:18 AM
I said it on the other one too, but looks like they DID recast iron man after all. And Thor as well, jeez.
batz11 - 5/16/2014, 8:18 AM
This is really cool to see...I'm not sure Black Widow's show of support is very appropriate though ;)

OrionPax - 5/16/2014, 8:20 AM
So,everyone that doesn't post a picture for this guy doesn't care that he's dying?That's a narrow minded comment.
write33 - 5/16/2014, 8:27 AM
very classy of them to do show that love & support, that's fantastic.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 5/16/2014, 8:32 AM
That's nice
InfiniteMonkey - 5/16/2014, 9:12 AM
Awfully nice of them.
Now we just need to see them in their new costumes.
FantasyBoy - 5/16/2014, 10:12 AM
Very nice of them ! Also RDJ is either standing on something or wearing high heels to look taller.
FantasyBoy - 5/16/2014, 10:13 AM

Oh !!! Very nice pic!
Jwe75 - 5/16/2014, 10:19 AM
Is that Hemsworth THOR look for AOU??? Niiiice! ;)
BlackFlash - 5/16/2014, 10:25 AM
@McNyagano - I think Chris had to cut his hair for the film Hart of the Sea so he didn't have time to grow it all back so yeah i'm pretty sure thats a wig.
Tdi7457 - 5/16/2014, 10:51 AM
@HurricaneXavier because she's the only cast member not to participate. Everyone else went out of their way, just saying.
ShortandAngry - 5/16/2014, 11:52 AM
Moving. It's always nice to see actors do this. I hope going above and beyond the camera like this eases her father's hardship.
Ramiel - 5/16/2014, 1:01 PM
Sucks Hemsworth won't have his Dark World hair w/ the braids.
GA15 - 5/16/2014, 1:31 PM
