Captain America and Star-Lord took a break from saving the world to do something no less important: making some kids very, very happy.
In a collaboration better than any “Guardians of the Galaxy“-“Avengers” crossover, the actors who play both characters in the Marvel franchises, Chris Evans and Chris Pratt, made good on their Super Bowl bet.
To recap, Evans was rooting for the Patriots and Pratt was supporting the Seahawks, so they bet that the fan of the losing team would have to visit a children’s hospital – in costume – in the opposing team’s city.
In the end, the stars agreed that they’d both visit both facilities, Christopher’s Haven in Boston and Seattle Children’s.
They visited Christopher’s Haven last month:

So in March, Chris and Chris traveled to Washington.
Seattle Children’s revealed that Marvel sent gifts, like a toy Captain America shield and action figures, while Disney granted Evans the opportunity to visit in his Cap’n suit.
