Yes it is. The Avengers assemble, once again. This time, not to save the world, but to help America vote.

Several actors of Avengers: Endgame will join filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo for a fundraising event in support of the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris campaign. Entitled “Rally of Voters”, the event will be a question-and-answer session and Senator Kamala Harris will be in attendance. Harris will be joined by a few Avengers like Chris Evans, Don Cheadle, Mark Ruffalo, Paul Rudd, Scarlett Johansson and Zoe Saldana.

It’s not surprising that the actors are joining the political campaign. Chris Evans has always been a vocal member of American society and has used his status to highlight several social issues. Evans also recently launched the “Where to Start” civic engagement platform. Scarlett Johansson is another actress who has always weighed in on socio-political issues, along with Mark Ruffalo.

The late Chadwick Boseman was another Avenger who stood behind Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. We’re pretty sure Boseman would have been another powerful voice to this already exceptional lineup if he had been here today.

BUT WHERE IS CHRISS PRATT?

While a majority of the Avengers vocally support Democrat Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, a few users have pointed out Chris Pratt’s absence. Pratt has always been woefully silent on his political allegiances, but netizens have speculated that he is in fact a Trump supporter.

Pratt’s stepfather was allegedly a former Republican governor, and according to Vox, Pratt attends Zoe Church in Los Angeles, which is said to share anti-LGBT + views. However, Pratt responded to these allegations. As reported by CNN, Pratt had addressed the issue on an Instagram story and said, “It was recently suggested that I belong to a church that ‘hates a certain group of people’ and is ‘sadly anti-LGBTQ’. Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens its doors to absolutely everyone.

Pratt has never openly supported Trump, nor publicly shared anti-LGBT + views yet, but his silence on the issue for years only widens suspicion.
