We’re sure to be talking about the final minute of Super Bowl XLIX for weeks to come, but in the game pitting superhero against superhero—doubling as a possible preview of Captain America: Civil War—everyone wins.
The Chris Evans/Chris Pratt wager came to an end once the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl, demonstrating that you should probably never bet against Captain America—or rather Evans, the Chris who plays him. Who else would win but the only one besides Thor who could make Mjölnir move?
It’s the stunning conclusion to a nearly two-week trash-talking bet and a standoff between Evans and Pratt in the name of charity. As Patriots and Seahawks fans respectively, they laid down the law of the land in advance of the big game: the loser had to visit the winning city’s children’s hospital dressed up as his Marvel character. Someone even made T-shirts.
But on the big day, they were both in good smiles and good cheer. And, as people quickly found out, they were watching the game together in Glendale, Ariz.
Wait wait wait according to tumblr the Chrises are AT the Super Bowl together THAT IS MARVELOUS

They had plenty to be excited about: Jurassic World, a night out enjoying a game of football, giving us a taste of what it might be like for Captain America and Star-Lord to meet…you get the idea.
For Pratt and his fellow Seahawks fans, it turned out to be a good game—at least until that interception in the final minute. For Evans and the Patriots fans, that was the last-second miracle they were hoping for. Pratt accepted defeat with grace and pledged that he would visit Christopher’s Haven in Boston as his Guardian of the Galaxy character, bringing yet another Chris into the Marvel family.
Even though Evans won, he announced in a state of euphoria that Seattle Children’s would be getting a special visit from a costumed hero as well—as well as plenty of photos and video for the rest of us.
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

Will Captain America and Star-Lord ever meet in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Maybe not. But soon, they will meet somewhere even better: at a real-life children’s hospital.
