A few deserving kids just got the surprise of a lifetime from Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston

The co-stars took time away from the set of filming Thor: Ragnarok on Tuesday to visit with the patients of  Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in Australia. Dressed as their characters from the Marvel film, Chris and Tom spent time, shared a few words of encouragement and took photos with their young fans. 

""Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor!" (i.e. everyone but the weirdo in the black suit). Unforgettable meeting all the children," Hiddleston captioned an Instagram photo of the pair posing with two children, adding, "They're the real heroes."

Hemsworth followed suit with his own commemorative snapshot captioned, "Met the real superheroes of the world at @ladycilentochildrenshospital. A huge shout out to all the brave kids who are an inspiration to all of us!"

Juiced TV, a weekly show presented by kids at the hospital, even had the chance to interview Hiddleston and Hemsworth during their visit. "Do you need a hand? We got your back if you do," Chris told one lucky patient while Tom added, "We're right here with you, man."

The smiles and laughter from the children say it all, as the actors discuss their onscreen sibling rivalry as the titular superhero and supervillain from the wildly popular film franchise. 

As it turns out, Hemsworth was so touched by the experience he returned to the hospital on Wednesday for a second visit. And although the Aussie native left his long blonde ponytail in the wardrobe department this time around, the hospital wrote on Instagram that the actor "saw a number of children and families that didn't see him last night. He made young Daniel's night!"

Chris and Tom are far from the first stars to bring their superhero personas to life for children in need. Chris Evans and Chris Pratt have both done their part to brighten the days of patients as Star-Lord and Captain America, and earlier this year Robert Downey Jr. bonded with a few of his youngest #TeamIronMan members.
