They fought off heavyweight villains like Loki and Ultron, but now a number of the Avengers are setting their sights on a brand new target - Donald J. Trump.

On behalf of Hillary Clinton's Super PAC, the cast hope to encourage citizens to get out there and vote... for Hillary.
Such is the nature of the 2016 US Presidential election cycle, the video has already divided people down the middle. With 626,000 views and counting, the commercial has over 27,000 likes and 22,000 dislikes since it was published online tonight.

But Whedon wanted to illustrate exactly why these performers agreed to the production. While also pushing the underlying importance of getting people out to the ballot box on November 8th.save
