Actors Don Cheadle, Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson and more stars from Marvel’s “Avengers” blockbuster series have signed on to a fundraiser to help raise money for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign.

Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.), the Democratic vice presidential nominee, will also participate in the virtual event, which will include a Q&A and trivia hosted by the Russo brothers, who have directed several Marvel films.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the fundraiser is being called “Voters Assemble.”

Other “Avengers” cast members scheduled to be featured in the event, set to take place Tuesday afternoon, include Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana.

Viewers are asked to donate “any amount,” according to a page set up for the fundraiser on the left-leaning digital fundraising platform ActBlue.

“Anything you donate will be used to elect Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Democrats up and down the ballot,” the page reads.

The event is one of a number of virtual fundraisers featuring a lineup of Hollywood stars that have been hosted in recent weeks to raise money for Democrats.

Last month, several cast members from NBC’s hit comedy “Parks and Recreation” — including Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman and Retta —  reunited for another virtual event to help raise money for the Wisconsin Democratic Party. 

That same month, cast members from the cult classic “The Princess Bride” also reunited for a virtual table read to raise funds for Democrats in Wisconsin, which is a key battleground state this election.
