Avengers: Endgame Stars Danai Gurira and Elizabeth Olsen Share Marvel Fan Stories

Avengers: Endgame was released on DVD and Blu-ray this week, which means Marvel Studios had been plugging the film a whole lot on social media. They’ve been sharing various clips of film’s stars, most recently a video featuring Danai Gurira (Okoye) and Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch). The two actors discuss the Marvel fans and share stories of their favorite fan moments.

“The fans are everything,” Gurira says. “One can’t exist without the other.”

Olsen goes on to share the story of a young boy with leukemia who looks to Captain America for strength, and Gurira added a heartfelt thank you to all of the fans.

Many people commented on the post, appreciating the shoutouts:
