Those who follow Marvel Studios mainstay Chris Evans on social media likely know that the actor's portrayal of Captain America often transcends the big-screen. However, Evans has managed to take his embodiment of Cap to new heights, responding to a viral video of a bullied young child by inviting him and his mother to the LA premiere of next year's MCU blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War.

Over the weekend, a heartbreaking video of a Knoxville, Tennessee boy named Keaton Jones began circulating on Twitter. In it, Jones tearfully recounts how he's severely bullied by the other children at school, and posits that "it’ll probably get better one day." And for Jones, that day came on Sunday, when Evans responded to the video on Twitter by not only offering words of encouragement but by asking if Jones and his mother would like to attend the Infinity War premiere in LA next year.

Evans wasn't the only one to reach out in support of Jones. Fellow Avengers star Mark Ruffalo, as well as Mark Hamill and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, were among the many celebrities who assured Jones that things do get better.
