There's no question about it: Tom Holland was born to be Spider-Man. When he's not jumping several feet in the air, back flipping like it's no big deal, and generally performing gravity-defying stunts on his Instagram, he's sharing photos of the tiny jumper that was, apparently, his first-ever Spider-Man costume.
Tom doesn't hide the fact that he's a huge fan of the Marvel universe – in fact, he says he just asked to audition for Spider-Man: Homecoming because he "wanted to meet the Marvel people". So, when we met up with him in London to promote the movie, we decided to challenge him to the ultimate MCU trivia quiz.
Spoiler alert: He kind of killed it.
Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Loki, Black Widow, Iron ManThor, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Hulk, Nick FuryIron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye
The six Avengers (from the 2012 movie) are Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye.
OK, we started with an easy one. But Tom didn't even have to think about it.
It took him three tries, but Tom got there in the end. And we didn't even give him multiple choice.
Three of the six Avengers don't have powers.
Black Widow and Hawkeye are skilled assassins, and Iron Man is just really, really rich.
Special Headquarters Investigating Enhanced Logistics DepartmentStrategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement Logistics DivisonStrategic Headquarters Investigating the Enforcement of Logistics Division
It stands for Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement Logistics Division.
Tom didn't get this one. To be fair, it's quite difficult.
His name is Howard Stark.
Tom didn't even have to think about it. So casual.
Clyde BartonClint BurtonClint Barton
It's Clint Barton.
He questioned himself at first, but Tom got it right. (Again, without multiple choice to help him.)
Thor's hammer is called Mjolnir.
Not only did he get it right without even having to think about it, but Tom's pronunciation was on point.
The answer we were looking for was JARVIS.
But because Tom is a nerd, he gave us extra answers. And then started talking about an easter egg in Age of Ultron. (Tom really likes Marvel, guys.)
Just Another Rather Very Intelligent SystemJust A Really Very Important SystemJarvis's Artificial Recognisable Voice Information System
JARVIS stands for Just Another Rather Very Intelligent System (of course).
Tom dropped a point on this one.
In the movies, it's made from vibranium.
But since Tom gave both answers – without even having to think about it, I might add – we'll accept adamantium as well.
It's Happy Hogan!
OK, he's in Spider-Man: Homecoming, so this was an easy one.
50 years60 years70 years
He was frozen and asleep for "nearly seventy" years.
After a long discussion about the end of World War II and movie release dates, Tom came up with an answer of "fifty or sixty years". The dates were right, but the maths was wrong.
It's made from titanium alloy. Definitely not iron.
Tom was kind of annoyed that he didn't get this one.
Donald BlakeSteve RogersBritney Spears
Thor's fake Earth-person driver's license is under the name Donald Blake.
Nope, not Britney Spears. We didn't even give Tom that option – he just came up with it himself.
