Avengers assemble!

Cast members from Avengers: Endgame made a special appearance during the first-ever Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2020: Celebrate Together, a virtual special donating $1 million to No Kid Hungry.

Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner had a mini-reunion during the program to accept their award in the favorite movie category.

"This is such a thrill, we are so excited and so happy the Kids' Choice Awards are happening," Johansson said.

"Stay safe, stay strong," Ruffalo said. "We're stronger together, we'll get through this," Hemsworth added.

"Love you 3000," Evans said as the cast all joined in.

The digital appearance came just one day after Avengers star Evans joined Instagram and announced that he would be giving one lucky fan the chance to hang out with him and a handful of his costars.

"I am accepting the All in Challenge,” Evans, 38, said in his video. "This is a great cause, this helps get food to people who are in need during this COVID nightmare, so I am very happy to be doing this."

Here’s what I can offer: a virtual hang out with me and five of my closest friends: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner,” he continued. “We can do a private Q&A, you can ask us anything, we’ll spill the beans, then maybe some games. I would recommend Scattergories."
