Two of the biggest actors in recent Marvel movies, Chris Pratt and Chris Evans, are diehard football fans. Pratt, who played Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, is a huge Seattle Seahawks fan, while Evans, the actor playing Captain America, roots for the New England Patriots.

Update from Sunday, March 8

After visiting Christopher's Haven in Boston last month, Pratt and Evans held up their end of the bargain with a recent trip to the Seattle Children's Hospital:

Evans revealed that he will tag along and that the two actors will also visit Seattle Children's Hospital:

Chris Evans @ChrisEvans

So much to say!! WHAT A GAME!!!!! Thank you to the Patriots organization for giving me more amazing memories than any fan could ever ask for

Chris Evans @ChrisEvans

Thank you to @prattprattpratt for being a good sport. I'll be there with you at @chris_haven, and don't worry @seattlechildren, we'll be

Chris Evans @ChrisEvans

coming there too! And lastly, I don't think anyone can ever doubt the mental toughness of Tom Brady. Tough couple weeks, but he showed why

Because of their loyalties, the two made a friendly wager on the upcoming Super Bowl. Well, maybe not too friendly, because Evans called out Pratt over Twitter, deeming him his enemy over the next two weeks:

Chris Evans @ChrisEvans

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

In response, Pratt questioned who the real Captain America is, claiming that Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is the true superhero:

chris pratt @prattprattpratt

@ChrisEvans We both know there's only one Captain America and his name is Russell Wilson. #SuperBowlBound #LOB #Repeat

After that, Evans responded with an offer to make a wager. The two actors decided that the loser will have to go to a children's hospital in the opposing team's city dressed as their respective characters. If Seattle wins, Evans will have to dress as Captain America while waving the 12th Man flag, and Pratt will have to dress as Star-Lord in a Tom Brady jersey if the Patriots win.

Chris Evans @ChrisEvans

@prattprattpratt them's fightin words. Stakes? #whatisaseahawkanyway #somethingtombradyhunts

chris pratt @prattprattpratt

@ChrisEvans OK. Seahawks win you fly yourself to Seattle, visit @seattlechildren hospital as Captain America, waving the 12th man flag.

Chris Evans @ChrisEvans

@prattprattpratt I accept. And when the Patriots humiliate your seachickens, I expect Star-Lord to arrive at @chris_haven in a Brady jersey

This bet is awesome on so many levels, but the important thing is that the loser will be making a bunch of kids' days wherever he goes.
