It doesn’t end there though, as now we have James McAvoy, Chris Evans, Ian McKellen, Neil Patrick Harris, Sam Claflin, Hugh Jackman and Josh Hutcherson getting drenched. (And we particularly enjoyed Claflin’s dancing, as well as Chris Evans deciding in his lengthy vid that only a suit would befit the occasion).
