Chris Evans knows a superhero when he sees one.
Evans is also sending an authentic Captain America shield to Bridger, who needed about 90 stitches after intervening to save his sibling from the animal.
Bridger wore a Captain America costume as he watched Evans’ video.
“So I read your story, I saw what you did and I’m sure you heard a lot of this over the last couple days, but let me be the next one to tell you, pal, you’re a hero,” Evans says in the video, which Bridger’s family shared on Instagram.
“What you did was so brave, so selfless. Your sister is so lucky to have you as a big brother,” the actor continued. “Your parents must be so proud of you.”
Evans, 39, has appeared in 11 Marvel films as Captain America.
Bridger is from Cheyenne, Wyoming. The young boy’s heroic story went viral after his family shared an Instagram post about it earlier this week.
Other stars who have sent messages to Bridger include Spider-Man actor Tom Holland, Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman, Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo, Shazam actor Zachary Levi, “Avengers: Endgame” directors Joe and Anthony Russo, TV star Robbie Amell and Oscar winner Anne Hathaway, his family said.
