With filming on 20th Century Fox's next X-Men franchise installment coming to a close in Montreal, cast members paid a visit to Montreal Children’s Hospital to spend time with young fighters and their families.
Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), and Nicolas Hoult (Beast) and James McAvoy (Charles Xavier) — both sporting matching "Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters" tees — brought gifts and posed for photos. The photos are collected in the gallery below by LeChildren, the official Instagram page for Montreal Children's Hospital.
"Where do superheroes go to hang out? The Children’s, where they can meet our young superheroes face-to-face," the caption reads. "Big thanks to the cast of X-Men: Dark Phoenix for stopping by the hospital today, bringing gifts, smiles and laughs to our patients as they wrap up filming in Montreal. It was a visit we won’t soon forget!"
Visiting children's hospitals is a favorite extracurricular activity for kind-hearted superhero actors: Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Ben Affleck (Batman), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord) and the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are just a few of the super-actors who took time to make special memories for those dealing with difficult situations.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix will take place in the early '90s, and will see the X-Men contend with Jean Grey's (Sophie Turner) manifestation of unimaginable power. Fassbender, McAvoy, Shipp, and Hoult are joined by returning franchise stars Evan Peters, Daniel Cudmore, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Jennifer Lawrence, with Jessica Chastain the newest addition to the X-Universe in a mysterious role.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix opens November 2, 2018.
