Avengers Assemble for a heartbreaking cause!

Sophie Caldecott in this article from May 12, 2014 explains that her father, diagnosed with cancer, wishes to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier but was unable to go to the cinema because of his illness. The DVD release will probably too late. So Caldecott tries to get Marvel to send her father a copy of the movie.

In the course of this, she asks Marvel actors for support and they promptly came! Uniting under the hashtag #capforstrat, actors like Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson, Clark Gregg and more already posted their selfies as seen below. Not only to make Caldecott's wish happening but also to show their support and compassion for the fight against this dreadful desease.






















What a heartbreakingly wonderful reason to unite!

What a beautiful sunlight in a life :)
Humanity isn't all bad yet, there's always a tiny love in some people.

See..even a dying man knows CA:TWS is a great movie.
TheAstoundingMan - 5/15/2014, 2:49 AM
Good work man, did you find this all on Twitter?

My thoughts go out to the man and his family. It was a great gesture on the actors' part.
AustrianMarvelFan - 5/15/2014, 2:50 AM
Girl, not man :D. It's all on twitter, yeah. Ruffalo posted Jeremy and his photo today, that kinda brought it to attention.
DudeGuyMan - 5/15/2014, 2:56 AM
Marvel is the shit.
Brainiac13 - 5/15/2014, 2:56 AM
I hope he gets to see it.
soforizo - 5/15/2014, 3:06 AM
Cool of them to do.
soforizo - 5/15/2014, 3:07 AM
Skye is looking super fine. Natural beauty!
SaxoWolf - 5/15/2014, 3:29 AM
Cool of them to do it. My best wishes go for the gentleman and his family.

What a great Thing...!!
0megaDaGod - 5/15/2014, 3:39 AM
Hella cool. And LOL @ the AoS cast having hand written stuff instead of the official ones the Avengers cast got

Bennett is ridiculously fine
0megaDaGod - 5/15/2014, 3:40 AM
Also, there are some pretty high quality copies of this movie online. If seeing CA TWS is really that important (as it should be) then there are alternatives
MrMartinMarvel - 5/15/2014, 3:42 AM
I bet our lord and savior Kevin Feige could cure this guy's cancer with but a touch. Nah, I'm just kidding. I hope he enjoys the movie if and when he sees it.

"Cinematic Universe"

Always hated that phrase, sounds mad corny.
Starkasm - 5/15/2014, 4:10 AM
Smulders though...

@sameoldthing

"Even a dying man..." what's that supposed to mean? He has cancer he's not retarded.
Kurne - 5/15/2014, 4:30 AM
Where's Evans and Downey?
Kurne - 5/15/2014, 4:34 AM
Lol knowing Marvel they're probably going to give him Guardians as a bonus.
Desrow - 5/15/2014, 4:49 AM
Really touching, nice gesture.
mgeoff88 - 5/15/2014, 5:09 AM
Wow, that is awesome they're all trying to help him grant his final wish. I'm sure Marvel will send him a copy of CA:TWS.

@AustrianMarvelFan Very nice article. It's great to see people unite for a good cause.

Btw, welcome back. I'm glad you decided to give this site another chance.
MikeRaider - 5/15/2014, 5:39 AM
Wow you guys. These are some fantastic people, being heroes in their own right. God bless 'em, and that poor man too.

TheMexicanSuperman - 5/15/2014, 5:49 AM
This is awesome. I had a friend, more like a brother, who died of stage four cancer almost a year ago. He loved cbm, especially Avengers. He was really looking forward to Man of Steel, and he would have lost his shit about Batman and Superman showing up in a movie. My Godmother was diagnosed with breast cancer last month is this news gives me the feels.
TheRealRemyLebeau - 5/15/2014, 6:18 AM
Marvel: where hearts are loving and characters caring. ;)
OstrichBane - 5/15/2014, 6:19 AM
There's a reason these people play superheroes.
StarkAnthony - 5/15/2014, 6:31 AM
Step up Evans, Downey, and Hemsworth! If the Agnets of SHIELD cast can do it, so can you
TheBaroness89 - 5/15/2014, 6:37 AM
Love it all. Makes me so happy when actors do something like this. A little tear is in my eye.
DoubleD - 5/15/2014, 6:43 AM
My prayers are with this man. What he is going through is very hard but don't give up the fight because things can change in a heart beat.

0megaDaGod - 5/15/2014, 6:43 AM
FALSE

Grant Ward is no longer an Agent of SHIELD

yossarian - 5/15/2014, 6:46 AM
Agent Simmons can come get some.
MrNiklander - 5/15/2014, 6:46 AM
Now this is truly heart warming

They took like a moment of their time for one person.This shows that there is still hope on this planet
npamusic - 5/15/2014, 7:01 AM

npamusic - 5/15/2014, 7:02 AM
