Kids have creative imaginations that can make superheroes seem all the more magical. Some lucky children have even gotten to meet their favorite heroes in real life, and the pictures are adorable. Read on to see Girl Scouts posing with Supergirl, a young Thor meeting Chris Hemsworth, and many more heartwarming hero meet-and-greets.
Little Iron Man Even Drew On A Goatee
This little boy went all-out when preparing to meet Robert Downey Jr. at the Toronto International Film Festival. He not only wore a complete Iron Man costume, but he also drew on a goatee that looks just like the character’s!
His efforts must have made an impression on the actor because he stopped to take a picture with him amid a sea of excited fans. This boy must have been so proud to show the picture to all his friends at school.
These Girl Scouts Are All Supergirls
The Super Girl Scouts of Oklahoma got the field trip of a lifetime when they went to National City to meet Supergirl! Actress Melissa Benoist was so flattered by the visit that she posted about it on her Instagram.
The image shows her and four of the girls doing the same, classic superhero pose: one fist on the hip and the other in the air. That day will probably motivate these girls for the rest of their lives.
A Young Captain Marvel Holding Hands With Brie Larson
This young girl clearly adores Captain Marvel because she showed up at the London movie premiere dressed just like the superhero! The fan couldn’t have a bigger smile on her face as she poses with Brie Larson.
The actress didn’t just lean over for a photo, but held the girl’s hand and bent down to her level for some adorable pictures. The young lady probably felt like a superhero getting such special treatment from her favorite Marvel character.
Carl Grimes Meeting His “Father”
The Walking Dead may be considered a horror series, but that didn’t stop this little boy from becoming a huge fan. After all, the zombie series is based on comic books and features some seriously heroic characters.
The boy dressed up as Carl Grimes and carried a sign that says, “See you soon dad!” which got the attention of Andrew Lincoln. Lincoln plays Rick Grimes, the father of Carl Grimes, so they naturally had to get a “family” photo.
Emily Bett Holding Up A Young Felicity Smoak
When Buzzfeed asked their Twitter followers to name an inspirational female TV character, one mom was quick to share this photo of her daughter and Felicity Smoak. The Arrow character inspired this young girl to consider her brain her superpower.
Best of all, actress Emily Bett was sweet as can be with her young fan. Bett lifted her up high for a precious photo with her mini-me. The girl’s mom tweeted, “What a phenomenal woman for our girls to look up to!”
Young Batman Meeting Stephen Amell (Green Arrow)
This little boy had a huge grin on his face while posing for a photo with actor Stephen Amell. Amell is known for his role as Green Arrow, aka Oliver Queen, on the series Arrow. The actor posted the endearing photo on his Instagram account.
In the caption, he joked, “Really excited that we’ve added Batman to the show,” referring to the boy’s costume. Even though the kid’s favorite character might be Batman, he seems thrilled to meet his second-favorite hero.
This Girl Is Twinning With Her Favorite Doctor Who Star
This little girl, Anna, has cystic fibrosis, so BBC Children in Need decided to give her an extra-special day. The program sent Anna to the set of Doctor Who and got her a miniature version of her favorite character’s costume!
She got to wear the outfit while meeting Jodie Whittaker, who plays Thirteenth Doctor. Anna and Jodie looked cute as can be as they struck the same pose while wearing identical outfits. Anna got to feel like she was her favorite hero!
Kate Mara Pecking The Cheek Of Her Fantastic Four Fan
When an Apple Store in New York invited the cast of Fantastic Four to greet customers, this young boy was excited to be there. Actors Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell were all present, but there was one person he had to meet: Kate Mara.
Mara plays Susan Storm in the film franchise and made quite an impression on the boy when she gave him a peck on the cheek. That’s one picture he’ll never delete.
This Captain America Fan Got To Meet Chris Evans
Chris Evans carved out time for a special meet-and-greet in New York City, and this Captain America fan was sure to be there. She even brought her Captain America teddy bear!
Evans bent down to take a heartwarming photo with the little girl, who was also wearing a Captain America t-shirt. Now she has one more thing to add to her hero collection: a photo with the actor who plays one of her favorite characters!
This Young Thor Got A Picture With Chris Hemsworth
This young boy is such a huge fan of Thor that he wore a full-blown costume to the London premiere of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Of all the Avengers characters, he picked Thor to dress up as, which made meeting Chris Hemsworth all the more incredible.
The actor held up a rock-on hand sign as he bent down to pose with the little fella for a photo. We’d bet that kid will be wearing the same costume for several Halloweens.
This Fan Got A Hug From Aquaman
The way that Jason Momoa is hugging this young lady would have you believe she was his daughter. In actuality, she’s just a fan who got a big bear hug from the Aquaman himself.
The girl had her lucky run-in with the actor at the Sarasota Film Festival, which was screening Jason’s film Road to Paloma. Being that the film is rated R, we would guess this girl was more thrilled about Momoa’s Aquaman character.
This Supergirl Got To Meet Wonder Woman
This girl may have gone to Comic-Con dressed as Supergirl, but that doesn’t mean she wasn’t thrilled to meet Wonder Woman. Actress Gal Gadot’s eyes lit up as she talked to the young lady, who appears to know a thing or two about female superheroes.
Gadot didn’t just sign her autograph and then wave to the next person in line. She seemed genuinely interested in this young fan, giving the girl a memory she’ll never forget.
This Little Boy Got To Meet His Favorite Black Panther Star
This little boy, Adonis, is such a big fan of actor Michael B. Jordan that he even made a video telling the actor how much he admires him. The kiddo loves watching Jordan in the Black Panther and the Creed films.
Adonis’ mom found a way to get his adorable video to the actor, who then replied with a video message. The boy later got to meet his hero through Good Morning America, and now considers Jordan his best friend.
Tom Holland Did Playdough With This Spiderman Fan
Spiderman star Tom Holland visited the LAC + USC Medical Center as part of a weeklong Marvel charity campaign. While there, he met some cute kids who are in recovery, like this little girl he was doing Playdough with.
In the background is a boy who was also excited to meet the superhero. While the kids were in hospital gowns rather than hero costumes, we’re sure they were thrilled about the visit. It was probably one of the brighter moments in their hospital stay.
A Teenage Meredith Grey Got To Meet Ellen Pompeo
Make A Wish made this teenager’s dream come true. She got to go on the set of Grey’s Anatomy and meet the star of the show, Ellen Pompeo!
The young lady not only loves the series, but she also wants to be a doctor one day. It doesn’t get much more heroic than saving lives every day. The young lady even got to direct a scene! Getting to laugh with her favorite on-screen hero must have been very inspiring.
These Window Washers Dressed Like Superman And Iron Man
At Sabara Children’s Hospital in Brazil, a pair of window washers decided to go out of their way to make one young patient smile. This little girl got to wave at Superman and Iron Man!
The girl’s mom is wearing a huge smile as she watched her daughter feel a little more joy thanks to the staff’s kind deed. The window washers probably had fun dressing up, too! It definitely is a day that will go down in everyone’s memory.
This Girl Is About To Cry Meeting The Flash
This little girl was so amazed at getting to meet The Flash that she nearly started crying! Actor Grant Gustin took a knee to pose with the kiddo, who was so overwhelmed with emotion that she could barely hold a smile.
He even put an arm around her shoulder. Best of all, they weren’t at a crowded premiere, but were instead on an open road in casual clothing. It’s as though their chance meeting was meant to be.
This Boy Got The Meet Three Superheroes At Comic-Con
Little kids don’t always need the actor of a Hollywood superhero movie to impress them. Sometimes, everyday adults dressed up as heroes is good enough. That was the case for this little boy, who went to the Middle East Film & Comic Con.
He got a photo with Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman all at once! The boy is wearing a Captain America t-shirt, so hopefully, he got the chance to meet that hero, as well.
This Boy Was Copying Batman’s Fight Pose
This little boy got to meet his favorite superhero at the Warner Bros. World theme park in Abu Dhabi! The cutest part is that he’s mimicking Batman’s pose (both have their fists up like they’re about to battle a villain).
It’s similar to kids who get to meet their favorite Disney princess at Disneyland, only this time it’s a superhero! The park was only open for a month when this photo was taken, so he must have felt extra lucky to be there.
Hand-To-Hand With Batman And The Flash
Few things are more precious than a little kid putting their hand up to an adult’s hand. This girl put her hand up to the window at a children’s hospital in Brazil where superheroes appeared outside.
A window washer dressed like Batman put his hand on the other side of the window, which must have made that girl feel like she was in a superhero movie! Next to Batman was another window washer dressed like The Flash!
