‘Captain America’ Grants Dying Father’s Wish, Watch Actors Turn Into Superheroes [Photos]

Some actors who play superheroes turned into real life angels when Captain America granted a dying father his last wish to watch the film before it was released thanks to his devoted daughter, who started the campaign #CapForStrat.

Proving, once again, that social media is an extremely powerful tool when used to do good, Sophie Caldecott from London, desperately tried to do everything in her power to grant her dying father’s wish to watch the latest Marvel action movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

The problem? The film won’t be released on Blu-Ray/DVD until August 12, and Stratford Cadecott was diagnosed with advanced stage prostate cancer in 2011 and only had a few days to live.

Sophie decided to send a note to Marvel executives, as her 60-year-old father is too weak to visit a movie theater, and the result was amazing.

Her campaign #CapForStrat went viral and got the attention of many of the Captain America stars. This is the original tweet Sophie sent in her attempt to get the attention of the studio.

Sophie, a writer and journalist grad, put her skills to good use to start the amazing campaign for her dying father, which not only got the attention of the Captain America actors, but it went viral with other celebrities and regular folks. Take a look:

You can look at more of the incredible response Sophie received from Captain America celebrities and others in support of her #CapForStrat effort.

In the end, Sophie got responses from such people as Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), and many, many others and was able to grant her dying father his wish of watching Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Marvel has agreed to hold a private screening for #CapForStrat in his home.
