While killing time in self-isolation, Tom Holland challenged his fellow Marvel co-stars, Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds to do shirtless handstands – And boy, did they deliver.

Starting as an unknown theatre boy from England, Holland was catapulted to unprecedented levels of fame in 2016 after his Marvel debut in Captain America: Civil War.

The British actor had actually been confirmed as the new SpiderMan.

So many were a little shocked to hear that such an unknown actor had been cast.

But, as the saying goes, age is just a number, right?  

Directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo said that Holland had the edge because of his prior experience as a gymnast. In the script, Spider-Man flipped in a scene, and Holland reportedly offered to perform the stunt himself during one of the auditions.

Because Holland’s portrayal of SpiderMan has been a roaring success.

Including Marvel’s 2019 hit, Avengers Endgame, which grossed a staggering $1 billion in the box office.

For a twenty-three-year-old actor, he isn’t doing too badly for himself, is he?

The Marvel Universe has catapulted Holland into the A-list limelight, and he has gradually become one of the most popular actors in the world of Hollywood.

Holland is also well known for his comically loveable personality off-screen.

We all remember the time he accidentally let slip that his character had died in Infinity War to an audience full of people who hadn’t yet seen the movie. Ouch.

It was horribly hilarious.

And it has affected how directors and filmmakers work with the actor. Director, Joe Russo once said of Holland’s loose tongue: “Tom Holland gets his lines and that’s it. He doesn’t even know who he’s acting opposite of. We’ll just, we use like very vague terms to describe to him what is happening in the scene because he has a very difficult time keeping his mouth shut.”

People simply can’t get enough of the actor, and millions follow him across all social media platforms.

And regularly shares aspects of his life with his 34 million-strong Instagram following.

As a result of the ongoing medical pandemic, the majority of the world is currently sitting in self-isolation, and celebrities are faring no differently.

But Tom’s may have just topped them all.

As you do.

Because all the other celebrities are doing them, obviously. The latest challenge to circulate the internet is to do a handstand while shirtless and attempt to put your shirt back on while still in the handstand.

And, upon his rather impressive completion, he then nominated 3 of his pals… Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds, and Harrison Osterfield.

And posted his own video of him attempting the challenge.

And he successfully pulled on his shirt while in the handstand position. Ten out of ten for effort.

Well, Ryan has never been on to do things by the book, has he?

We all wondered whether the Deadpool star would deliver…

And he did in the only way he knows best – By doing the exact opposite of what was asked of him.

He stares in silence for a few moments, before responding with, “no?” and a shake of his head.

Of course Deadpool was never going to take orders from Spiderman.

That’s just not how Deadpool rolls… Sorry, Tom. Good effort though.
