A terminally ill Marvel fan will get his dying wish, with a little help from Thor.

The 33-year-old Australian man, Alexander, who suffers from a genetic disorder, is battling liver cancer, mouth cancer and bone marrow failure and has just months left to live. 

His dying wish is to get a sneak peek of the new Avengers: Endgame film, as it’s unlikely he’ll live to see the film when it’s released April 24.

Alexander took to the Marvel studios subreddit on January 5 with a post entitled 'Dying Before April: My Endgame'.

Thousands rallied behind the Avengers fan, spreading the hashtag '#Avengers4Alexander.'

His impassioned campaign soon went viral and reportedly led to Chris Hemsworth being contacted - prompting Disney to get in touch with Alexander to discuss when he can see the film. 

Nice work Thor!
