Last month, Marvel Studios stars Chris Evans and Chris Pratt made a little wager after their respective favorite teams were set to compete in Super Bowl XLIX. If Pratt's Seattle Seahawks won, Evans would visit Seattle Children's Hospital as Captain America. If Evans' New England Patriots won, Pratt would pay a visit to Boston-based pediatric cancer charity Christopher's Haven in his Star-Lord costume.
After a thrilling game last Sunday, the Patriots emerged victorious, and though Pratt and Evans announced that they would be visiting both charities, Christopher's Haven ended up first on the list after the Patriots' win.
So, true to his word, Pratt showed up earlier today at Christopher's Haven to meet kids and their families in full Star-Lord costume. Evans was along for the ride, too, though he did not don his Steve Rogers gear this time around.
Last summer, after Guardians of the Galaxy became a breakout box-office hit, Pratt paid similar visits to sick children in full Star-Lord costume, and even admitted in an interview that he stole his wardrobe from the film's set for just such a purpose, citing Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson as an example.
“I stole the jacket and some of the wardrobe so that, if this movie comes out and does what everyone hopes it can, I can follow the example of someone — say, like, a Russell Wilson, you know — and go visit kids,” Pratt said during a Guardians of the Galaxy promotional interview. “If it was a big enough movie, to where it would mean something to a kid who's sick in the hospital — for Peter Quill or Star-Lord to come visit them — I'll do that. I think that's awesome, man. That would give me real meaning for this movie, you know?”
Now, it's Evans' turn. We'll let you know when Captain America is sighted in Seattle.
