Kids' Choice Awards: OG Avengers assemble for mini-reunion, fans tear up and say 'this is what we needed'
The original six Avengers had a virtual mini-reunion at the Kids Choice Awards with an empowering message to stay safe during the ongoing pandemic
Avengers, assemble! We thought it would be a long, long time — perhaps never even, before we saw Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) grace our screens again.
But they did, and it was for the Kids Choice Awards. 'Avengers Endgame' won Favourite Movie, and our heroes showed up for a mini virtual reunion, which is just what their fans needed to see in these gloomy times.
The cast joked around on who is the strongest Avenger and then ended with a message for fans to stay safe: "Stay strong during the coronavirus pandemic." Evans added the signature tagline, "Whatever it takes."
'Avengers Endgame' ended 10 years of storytelling and was goodbye to most of our favorites, as Iron Man died saving the universe, Captain America decided to grow old with Peggy and Black Widow died sacrificing herself for the Soul Stone in Vormir.
While Downey Jr and Evans were not returning to the Marvel films and 'Black Widow' film is stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic, there are other plans for Hawkeye.
Nevertheless, we won't be seeing them fighting evil on the big screen again, so this reunion was a little soothing relief. "The Avengers doing a mini-reunion while accepting their kids choice award is just what I needed I miss them," a fan tweeted.
"The avengers reunion can u hear me crying," a fan wrote. "LOOK AT OUR AVENGERS FAMILY! WE GOT A REUNION," a fan wrote.
One fan could not imagine that a reunion would happen at the Kids Choice Awards. "Can you imagine the reaction of telling someone a year ago that an og avengers reunion would happen at a virtual KCA's 2020," the fan wrote. "I missed them, I am crying!" a fan tweeted.
"The @Avengers: Endgame reunion was truly a highlight of #KCA2020!" another tweeted. Some fans were rather sad that Tom Holland didn't show up. "Before ppl tell me to not get annoyed about Tom not showing up, I’ll agree the avengers reunion helped smh," a fan wrote.
"The only reason why I was watching the kcas was for tom and he didn't show up????? BUT we had an Avengers reunion it made me so happy," a fan wrote.
