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:

Update from Monday, Feb. 2

The Patriots pulled out a 28-24 victory over the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX, and Pratt intends to pay up on the bet. 

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

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:

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

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.

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.
