Who says superheroes only exist in the movies? Before Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters, the stars of the upcoming epic Marvel team-up are being heroes to young fans all over the country by assembling packages of toys and collectibles tied to the film and delivering them to children’s hospitals. And they're now taking to social media to share what they've brought along.

Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Tom Holland and Sebastian Stan, among others, are delivering these care packages to hospitalized and critically ill children as part of Marvel’s Hero Acts, a charity initiative Marvel launched two years ago. 

"How about these cool Infinity War toys?" Downey Jr. wrote in a tweet. "Next stop: children's hospitals for Marvel's Hero Acts Initiative!"

And here we see Holland “buying his own funko's and giving them to the children and visiting the children's hospital,” according to this tweet.

Stan — aka Bucky Barnes aka the Winter Soldier (aka... White Wolf?) — also got in on the fun, delivering Winter Soldier action figures to kids at Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital. 

Other Infinity War cast members like Mark Ruffalo also received the Hero Acts goodie box and will be delivering them to children's hospitals.

Disney brought back the Hero Acts initiative as part of a weeklong charity campaign called Marvel: The Universe Unites. Infinity War stars Stan, Karen Gillan, and Paul Bettany helped unveil the project Tuesday on Good Morning America.

Avengers: Infinity War arrives in theaters on April 27.
