Marvel Stars Join Forces for the AGBO Superhero Fantasy Football League Again!

The AGBO Superhero Fantasy Football Charity League is returning for a second season bigger and better.

Last year, Joe and Anthony Russo’s entertainment company, AGBO, launched the AGBO Superhero Fantasy Football League. The stipulation to join — you had to have starred in a superhero film. The participants for the inaugural season included Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool), Michael B. Jordan (Killmonger), Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic), Chris Evans (Captain America), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man), Matthew Berry (ESPN Senior Fantasy Analyst; Endgame Cameo extraordinaire), and Joe Russo (Director of multiple Marvel films). The 14 players competed for the $100,000 prize pool to be divvied up between their charities of choice.

The God of Thunder, Chris Hemsworth, won the big prize last year, with $19,000 going to the Australian Childhood Foundation. Will he be as lucky this year?

Playing this year, and in their draft order, are:
