WATCH: The Avengers Reunite For the Biggest Battle of 2020

 

You wouldn’t normally associate The Avengers with anything else but movies – well, that is until this week, as on Tuesday they assembled (virtually) for what they see as the biggest battle right now: the 2020 Election.

Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Avengers and Captain America brought the superstar cast together for a virtual grassroots fundraiser for the Biden-Harris campaign – with people donating any amount of money in order to watch, and join the reunion with thousands of supporters donating to the campaign.

 

 

Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Don Cheadle (War Machine), and Zoe Saldana (Gamora) were billed as the main guests for the fundraiser, with the Russo brothers as the hosts. The event took place on MCU superfan and vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris’s birthday—who Anthony Russo called an “incredible woman”—and she joined about halfway through to talk with the Marvel actors and even play some Avengers trivia.

 

 

 

“Shockingly, it feels like the fate of the universe is once again on the line,” Anthony said in his introduction, emphasizing why the group was coming together.

“Like all of you, I look forward to electing a president whose moral and ethical code includes putting the interests of the American people ahead of his own—kind of like Captain America,” Anthony said.

 

 

The Russos also brought in two major surprise guests: Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man) and Harris’s husband, Doug Emhoff, who wished his wife a happy birthday.

 

 

Along the discussion which ranged from politics, to how they are facing this pandemic, Scarlett Johannson asked Senator Harris which Marvel character superpower she wants, and the answer is definitely what you’d expect from Kamala Harris!

The Superpower she would want, would be from Shuri, Princess of Wakanda: scientist, with intellect & power to see the potential in the world and create better. Senator Harris also paid tribute to her dear friend Chadwick Boseman who passed away earlier this year after a secret battle with cancer.

 

 

“You know, actually where I am now, the studio from my DC headquarters is at Howard University,” Harris said. “Chadwick and I actually both attended Howard University and I think about him all the time, there are monuments and memorials set up on campus to him and he was a very dear friend.”

She spoke of how he and other superheroes embody the “courage and honor” needed in politics right now, also seen in the “people standing in lines right now waiting to vote in the rain, waiting to vote in spite of state legislatures or state officials who are trying to make it difficult and confusing for people to vote.”

America heads to the polls on November 3rd!
