Chris Pratt and Chris Evans are two of Marvel's biggest on-screen stars at the moment, and the actors behind Star-Lord and Captain America are also off-screen buddies, too. But the twosome are currently at war over football loyalties, and have made a bet on the upcoming Super Bowl that's both silly and sweet in equal measure.
Pratt is a diehard Seattle Seahawks fan, and Evans loves the New England Patriots. After each team secured its bid to the NFL championship game, Evans couldn't help but take Pratt to task on Twitter, taunting his fellow actor.
Well, well, well @prattprattpratt, looks like our teams are going into battle. For the next 2 weeks, you are not my friend, you are my enemy- Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) January 19, 2015
Pratt responded in kind, telling Evans that Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson was the real Captain America.
The back and forth escalated into a bet between the actors, but since both Pratt and Evans are good guys, they couldn't help but turn humiliation of the other into a benefit for local sick children.
@ChrisEvans Humiliate my Seahawks? Maybe talk to Brady about deflating your expectations. BOOM! (legion of) You're on sucka. 😊- chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) January 21, 2015
Pratt's already shown that he's a real-life superhero when it comes to interacting with kids, especially during his "Guardians of the Galaxy" press tour, so this bet comes as no surprise. And we have a feeling that both actors will end up coming through in some way for children in need, regardless of the outcome of February's game.
