Avengers stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Karen Gillan (Nebula), and director Joe Russo surprised local Marvel fans via livestream during an Avengers: Infinity War fan event last Sunday morning at Cinema 7 of SM Megamall.
The event called for fans to assemble and come as their favorite Marvel character. Many came in elaborate superhero suits, and were prepared to take part in a supposed video recording of a message to the Avengers cast. But as soon as the fans shouted their line, "Avengers, we are ready for you!" the movie screen lit up to reveal a live, digital feed from Singapore of Cumberbatch, Gillan and Russo greeting back the Filipino fans.
After an eruption of loud cheers, few lucky fans were able to engage the three in a short Q&A session. For instance, Benedict Cumberbatch was asked if he agrees that both Doctor Strange's and Iron Man's personalities were alike. He then said, "I do agree. The two are super egotistical and vainglorious...and definitely, the two goatees, c'mon!" and explained that both were also men of science and logic. Afterwards, the stars and director participated in a group photo with the fans.
Check out the videos below for the cast's and director's messages to their Filipino fans.
