Fans are overcome with emotion as they say goodbye to some of their favorite characters in Avengers: Endgame and they are thanking the actors who portrayed them. Starting off, many are commending Robert Downey Jr., for overcoming his former troubles with addiction that allowed him to become a hero for children worldwide. Robert Downey Jr. is an Oscar-nominated actor but for many, it will be his role as Iron Man that will forever endear him to fans.
Likewise, Don Cheadle, who played War Machine alongside Downey’s Iron Man is another Oscar-nominated actor who will find a generation remembers him not for his work in Hotel Rwanda, Crash, or House of Lies but for his part in the Avengers’ MCU movies.
While young children will remember them for their characters, the thanks has extended worldwide to the actors who opened their hearts to play the roles that touched so many throughout their childhood and teen years.
Most notably, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are thanking Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
The hashtag #thankyouAvengers became so popular over the weekend that Twitter selected it as one of their moments.
