Children invited to the event dressed as super heroes were there to see the cast arrive. They announced a $5 million donation of cash and toys to non-profit organisations that support critically ill children.

“As you know, we’re counting down the days until ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ ” the L.A. Times reports Walt Disney Chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger as saying. “But a few Avengers have taken a break from saving the world to help us with a special mission.”

As part of the donation, the LEGO Group, Hasbro, Funko and Amazon sent $4 million in Marvel toys to children’s hospitals all around the world.

Hemsworth, Johansson, Rudd and Renner surprised children from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim and Garden Grove who were building models the LEGO Store. Scarlett Johansson recalled that she first saw Black Widow as a toy in minifigure form. “I’m pretty sure it was a LEGO from the first Avengers,” she said.
“I don’t think I’ve ever been in any other film where there could have been a LEGO version of me. This is basically the first time that I played a character that all the kids were allowed to see, so it was awesome. You definitely feel like you made it. It’s pretty surreal.”
