Some lucky fans got a big surprise when actor Chris Evans unexpectedly showed up at Comicazi, a comic shop in Somerville, MA, for a series of pranks which were captured on video (see below). The event was organized to advertise a contest Evans is currently running with Omaze in which participants contribute to charity for a chance to meet and participate in an escape room with him. Proceeds from the contest benefit Christopher’s Haven, a local nonprofit that provides support to kids fighting cancer.
Comicazi co-owner Mike Burke said they were contacted out of the blue by Omaze, whose team had previously scouted the store and found it ideal for their purposes. “Once everything was finalized, they had a crew set the cameras up the day before,” said Burke. “The next day Chris Evans came in to participate and get the whole thing going. He was a very nice guy.”
A Boston native, Evans has appeared in several comic book based movies most notably as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He has previously benefited Christopher’s Haven at their fundraiser and two years ago famously visited their patients alongside actor Chris Pratt after winning a bet with the star of Guardians of the Galaxy that the New England Patriots would defeat the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl.
