Chris Evans has finally joined Instagram, and all it took was an invitation from his Marvel co-star, Chris Pratt. The Knives Out star posted his very first video this week and he already has more than 2 million followers, as Evans took part in the All-In Challenge.
In the video, the 38-year-old actor said that he couldn’t match Pratt’s offer of getting eaten by a dinosaur in Jurassic World: Dominion, but he can assemble the Avengers for a virtual hangout.
“Hey everyone, Chris Evans here and I am accepting the All-In Challenge,” said Evans in the video. “I was challenged by Chris Pratt and this is a great cause. This helps get food to people who are in need during this Covid nightmare. So, I’m very happy to be doing this.”
According to the All-In website, Evans’ offer is for “you and two friends” to join him for a virtual game night. Other attendees on this list who are “defending their board-game thrones” are Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, and Jeremy Renner.
After letting fans know what he is offering for the challenge, Evans challenged Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, and Billy Porter to see what they could come up with.
The All-In Challenge is a digital fundraiser that was created last month by Philadelphia 76ers co-owner and Fanatics founder Michael Rubin to incentivize donations by having major celebrities in sports, music, and entertainment offer “once-in-a-lifetime experiences.”
