The bets are on in Chris Pratt and Chris Evans' big Super Bowl showdown and two charities stand to benefit.

The Chris vs. Chris battle has escalated. Marvel heroes Chris Pratt and Chris Evans have raised the stakes in their Super Bowl showdown, each agreeing to dress up as his respective superhero during a visit to a charity of the other actor's choosing.

It's all unfolding on Twitter. If the Seattle Seahawks win, Pratt, who grew up near the Emerald City, publicly challenged Evans to dress up as Captain America and then visit the Seattle Children's Hospital, waving a Seahawks flag.

Evans, who was born in Boston, accepted the challenge on the condition that — if the New England Patriots win — Pratt visit a Boston-based charity dressed as Star-Lord, wearing a Tom Brady jersey. Evans chose Christopher's Haven, a charity that benefits the families of child cancer patients.

A spokesperson for Seattle Children's Hospital tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Thank you to both our superheroes, Chris Pratt and Chris Evans, for turning this sports rivalry into an opportunity to help kids. While we will be rooting for our Seattle Seahawks on Super Bowl Sunday, we are thrilled that kids will get a visit from a superhero, no matter the outcome! Seattle Children’s is grateful whenever special visitors take the time to surprise our patients and families. Visits like these spread joy throughout our hospital and can help brighten their stay. Captain America and Star-Lord are welcome at Seattle Children’s anytime. Go Hawks!"

Who will win? The Seahawks face off against the Patriots at the Super Bowl on Feb. 1.
