We already know that the stars of the new Ghostbusters movie — Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, and Kate McKinnon — ain’t afraid of no ghosts. But how confident would their squad of paranormal exterminators be if they had to battle another cinematic superteam, such as the Avengers?

That was but one of the burning questions answered by the quartet during a recent video Q&A with EW.

After a long exhale, Wiig said of the hypothetical showdown, “I mean, they’re different strengths. Everybody likes each other, and it’s different worlds. It’s hard.”

“No one wins when you pit us against each other,” McCarthy chimed in.

Keeping up the pacifist vibe, Jones said, “Namaste.” A moment later, she added, “But, the Avengers.”

Other questions tackled by the foursome included whether they’ve encountered any spirits in real life, whom they would haunt if given the choice, and what kind of mileage Ecto-1 gets. Watch the video above for their answers.

Ghostbusters opens July 15.
