Real-life superhero Calyn was one of the children who met Tom and Chris. Three years ago he saved his younger brother by running onto a road to push him out of harm's way. But Calyn wasn't able to get off the road in time and was hit by a four-wheel drive.

He had extensive brain injuries and was told he would not be able to recover. He has since learnt how to walk and has started to regain some of his speech. Due to his act of bravery, Calyn received the Pride of Australia Child of Courage medal.

Calyn's mother, Shana, told BuzzFeed their encounter with the actors was absolutely unforgettable, and it was the first time she had seen her son smile so big.

"It was so sweet of them to take some time out and say hello. The kids' faces all lit up around our ward."

She added that before his accident, Calyn was a big Marvel fan and even had custom Thor shoes made.
