Avengers assemble alongside LGBTQ stars to ‘Save the Day’ from Donald Trump

When “Avengers” Director Joss Whedon decided to take time off from writing the next superhero smackdown screenplay to create a SuperPAC in support of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, you have to figure he envisioned some kind of video to back his pet project. Maybe a few of his favorite actors might even take part, one would hope.

Actually, lots of famous people, like Neil Patrick Harris, James Franco, Jesse Williams, and Julianne Moore to name a few.

“Just a shit-ton of famous people,” says Moore in the three-minute long “Save the Day,” video, which begins as a reminder to register to vote and shifts at the one minute mark to a clear repudiation of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, without once naming him or Clinton.

Actor Don Cheadle refers to Trump as “a racist, abusive coward who could permanently damage the fabric of our society.” Hamilton’s Leslie Odom Jr. questions the rationale behind giving “nuclear weapons to a man whose signature move is firing things.”

As BuzzFeed noted, the 27 actors taking part include some of Wheedon’s “Avengers” stars, including Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, and Cheadle. In addition to Harris, Franco, Williams, and Moore, there’s also Keegan-Michael Key, Cobie Smulders, Martin Sheen, and many more.

And the sweetener in this offer is when the stars suggest Ruffalo will film a nude scene to get your vote. Watch below:
