Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Chris Pratt – it seems like the Marvel Cinematic Universe has a huge thing going on for guys named Chris. A lot of Marvel fans have made jokes about the surprising number of Chris men by trying to pinpoint which is the "better Chris" amongst all the others in forums and blogs.
Now, Iron Man joins the debate and tries to start a Civil War by naming his own favorite.
The Avengers are pretty close on screen and off screen, so when Robert Downey Jr. celebrated his birthday last Tuesday, Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans were eager to greet the Hollywood A-lister with kooky pictures. Hemsworth's greeting was a photo of himself with a fan wearing a creepy-looking Robert Downey Jr. Mask; Evan's was a GIF of a Civil War outtake showing Cap and Tony close to kissing. The birthday celebrant's response however was seemingly enough to spark a Chris War of sorts.
Thanking the two for their well-wishes, Downey Jr. branded Hemsworth AND Evans as his favorite Chris, making fun of the whole "better Chris" debate amongst fans. After all, you can't have two favorites, you only get to pick one. Downey Jr. is also clearly biased because he's picking his favorite Chris based on the fact that these two are part of the Avengers. What about funnyman Pratt?
How about you? Who's your favorite Chris? Feel free to share with us your thoughts in the comment section below.
