UK Charity Ask Marvel To Screen Avengers 4 Early For Terminally Ill Child


Keira needs our help.

A UK organization by the name of My Shining Star Children’s Cancer Charity is calling on Marvel Studios to screen Avengers 4 early so that a terminally ill child, Keira, can have her final wish – to know exactly what happens after Infinity War.

Sadly, she only has six months to live (at best), and her close family and friends have posted an urgent appeal in the hope that she’ll be able to see Avengers 4 before anyone else in the world. Marvel is yet to respond to their heartfelt request at the time of writing, so the online community is beginning to pitch in and do its part so that Keira’s heartrending story can get the spotlight it deserves.

The hashtag ‘Avengers4Keira’ is already trending (h/t MCU Cosmic), so let’s get behind this worthwhile cause and help raise awareness for our fellow Marvel fan.

There is precedent for Disney hosting an exclusive screening for one of its terminally ill fans; back in 2015, J.J. Abrams and his team organized a special screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens for Daniel Fleetwood, a movie buff who sadly passed away mere days after seeing Episode VII with his own two eyes.

So let’s hope the Mouse House offers the same treatment to Keira during this difficult time. Our thoughts go out to her and her family. Cancer is a disease that doesn’t discriminate, so we imagine there are a vast number of MCU fans who have a cancer story of their own, and are therefore able to empathize with Keira’s plight.

We wish her and her family all the best as they try to make Keira’s dream to see Avengers 4 a reality.
