Two of the Marvel cinematic universe's reigning heroes named Chris, "Captain America" star Chris Evans and "Guardians of the Galaxy" star Chris Pratt, have taken their hometown pride and NFL rivalry and turned it into something positive. Boston native and Patriots fan Evans started the taunting off by pointing out that he and Washington state-bred Pratt would have to be enemies for the next two weeks, but the smack talk quickly evolved into a rather noble bet.

Good on them. Of course, Pratt couldn't resist getting in one last very topical burn:
@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
By the way, the other popular Marvel Chris, "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth, is Australian and likely has no idea what these two are on about.
