Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Holland have decided to join forces with the Avengers cast to support Bridger Walker. Bridger is a six-year-old who saved his younger sister from a dog attack.
Bridger’s aunt, Nicole Walker, caught the attention of the filmmakers. She contacted the filmmakers with information about the bravery of the little boy. The incident had gone viral on social media. Filmmaker Brandon Davis called the stunt one of the most fulfilling things they could do as he shared the clip of Bridger with his little sister.
Nicole shared an Instagram post about Bridger tagging the Avengers Cast. Bridger was bitten several times by a dog on his head and face. Even after being under attack, he held his sister’s hand and lead her away from the animal. Bridger’s aunt requested people to share the post as widely as possible so he could get some ‘words of encouragement from his favorite heroes.’
Walker has been documenting her conversations with Bridger and giving updates about him.

Mark Ruffalo Appreciates Bridger
Avengers star, Mark Ruffalo gave a message after Anne Hathaway shared Bridger’s story on social media. She wrote she is not an Avenger but she knows a superhero when she sees one. The actress further says she hopes she is as brave in her life as he is in his.
Ruffalo replied to Nicole Walker’s post and wrote that he wanted to reach out after reading Bridger’s story. He further wrote, ‘People who put the wellbeing of others in front of themselves are the most heroic and thoughtful people I know.
‘I truly respect and admire your courage and your heart. Real courage isn’t dominating people or fighting against people or walking around like a tough guy. Real courage is knowing what is right to do and doing it even when it might end up hurting you somehow.’
Walker revealed in her post that she had just visited Bridger. The little boy said, ‘If someone had to die, I thought it should be me’. She further gave updates saying his wounds are looking better and he is in great spirits.
‘He can’t smile too widely yet, but he was grinning as I read some of your comments to him,’ Walker mentioned. She also added that Bridger and his family feel no resentment towards the dog owners. Some people had asked Walker if there is a GoFundMe page for Bridger. But she instead suggested them to donate to military veteran groups. She asked to send photos of rocks to Bridger because he loves geology.
