A young Tennessee boy whose heartbreaking video about being bullied went viral is now getting some superhero treatment.

Chris Evans, AKA Captain America, tweeted to Keaton Jones asking if he and his mom would like to go to the L.A. Premiere of “Avengers: Infinity War.”

Keaton’s older sister, Lakyn, tweeted that the boy would “absolutely love that!” Evans responded and said he’ll make it happen. Mark Ruffalo, AKA The Hulk, also tweeted support for Keaton.

Keaton’s mom shared the video of her son recounting being bullied at middle school in Knoxville, Tenn. Keaton’s mom said she had just picked her son up from school because he was too afraid to go to lunch. In the video, Keaton said other students call him ugly, make fun of his nose and tell him he has no friends. The video had nearly 20 million views as of Monday.

The Tennessee Titans, University of Tennessee Volunteers, music stars, politicians and NASCAR racers have voiced their support for Keaton.

Avengers premieres in May 2018.
