Disney responds after dying Marvel fan asks to see ‘Avengers: Endgame’ before release

Make it happen….

The cast of Avengers:
Infinity War

Disney has reportedly reached out to a terminally ill fan, after
they started a campaign to see Avengers: Endgame before the film is

The fan, known only as Alexander, went viral after
starting a campaign on Reddit
called “‘Dying Before April:
My Endgame”. Many fans tagged the reddit accounts of directors
Joe and Anthony Russo, while others used #Avengers4Alexander on
social media.

Alexander, who is thought to be from Australia, explained in his
original post: “Liver cancer, mouth cancer, bone marrow

“Will probably be dead before April. I’ve heard of people
getting early screenings before. How do I get in on this

“I’m not a child or anyone with a particularly tragic story.
Just a normal guy. I’m 33, lost my sister three years ago to the
same rare genetic disease it turns out I have too. I’ll leave
behind a devoted girlfriend and an adopted greyhound.”

The rare genetic disease that he inherited is fancomi anemia –
which severely affects the production of bone marrow.


Disney have reached out and we’re discussing options. Thank you all
so much. This is everything I could have hoped for!

Alexander added: “”Also, because Australia is a small place,
turns out I know a guy who knows a guy who is chums with Chris
Hemsworth. I think they called him tonight on my behalf.”

Now, he says that Disney has responded, and they’re looking
into the various options of how to help him.

“Disney have reached out and we are discussing options. I
cried when I read their email. It’s everything I hoped for and I
owe it to all of you,” he explained.

That’s my next campaign. I’m gonna seem so

But he’s not quite finished yet – his next campaign will be
to watch the last Game of Thrones season before it airs.

“I’m gonna seem so greedy,” he joked.

Avengers: Endgame is set for release in April.
