Marvel Studios hopes a group hug will help those shaken by the events of “Avengers: Infinity War.”
Multiple attendees of San Diego Comic-Con shared photos on Twitter over the weekend taking a group photo surrounded by massive, prop Hulk arms. The photo is meant to serve as a grief counseling area for those affected by the end of “Infinity War.”

Fans can line up outside a room where they will speak with one of the “Avengers” actors, receive a doughnut and T-shirt and have a chance to watch a deleted scene that won’t be included on the Blu-ray and DVD release of “Infinity War,” according to i09.
Posters outside the room include positive quotes from Marvel characters.
So #AvengersInfinityWar has a great setup at #SDCC where they are holding #GroupHug therapy sessions w/ free donuts for people still reeling from Thanos’s snap

Actors from “Infinity War” will ask groups a number of questions about their first Marvel Cinematic Universe memory, the shocking twists of the films and how fans felt about the end of “Infinity War.”
Fans will leave the event with a “spared by Thanos” bracelet, according to Uproxx.
The event is to promote the DVD and Blu-ray release, which drops Aug. 14.
