Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Gwyneth Paltrow Visit a Devoted Avengers Fan Who’s Fighting Cancer

On May 23, 2016, 18-year old Ryan Wilcox, a devoted Avengers fan who’s currently being treated for cancer, got the surprise of his life when he answered the door to find Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America) and Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts) showed up at his door. The excited fan told Fox 35 that he really appreciated the visit.

They’re all so great. I would like to say thank you for taking the time out to come see me and that was a highlight

The appreciation was definitely mutual.
