Earlier this week, Thor and Loki put their sibling rivalry aside and decided to pay a visit to some patients at Lady Cilentro Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, Australia. Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston visited the hospital to meet dozens of children and their families, brightening everyone’s spirits.
Hemsworth brought along Thor’s legendary hammer, Mjolnir.
The visit was made possible by The Children’s Hospital Foundation, in partnership with Juiced TV, an Australian TV show made by kids in hospital, for kids in hospital. They joined in the filming of the show’s latest episode, and were interviewed by 11-year-old Koen, who was obviously beside himself with glee to be in the presence of his heroes.
Hiddleston called the visit “unforgettable.”
And just one visit wasn’t enough for Chris Hemsworth, who returned the next night to spend time with even more children.
With real men like this, who needs superheroes?
