On the path to peak quarantine celebrity: the Marvel Cinematic Universe, who are now Instagram-challenging each other to carpeted feats of strength, balance, and not-so-subtle Insta-flexing of their very sculpted back muscles.
“Okay, thanks @Olieg for this impossible challenge,” Tom Holland said on Instagram before doing a shirtless handstand against a wall and then putting on a Yankees t-shirt. He then nominated Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal.
Good to see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man training is (somewhat) paying off 🙃

First off: sucks for Mets nation that Queens-native Peter Parker is actually a Bronx Bombers fan. It also sucks for Ryan, who responded to the video by staring into his phone’s camera today for twelve seconds before exclaiming (Deadpool voice): “Noooo.”
Ryan Reynolds gives a very appropriate response after being tagged in Tom Holland’s strenuous IG fitness challenge 😬

But not to be outdone, Jake answered, doing the shirt trick faster (?), shouting out to a local business (Russ & Daughters), and then challenging his sister Maggie Gyllenhaal.
Jake also had the added challenge of fitting the shirt over his man bun. So extra points for him!

Of course, Ryan was right to find the challenge a bit unfair. Tom received dance and gymnastics training as a young(er) kid. And also, he’s Spider-Man. Still, Tom’s athleticism landed him in trouble once when he was peer-pressured into attempting a backflip on set. He ended up breaking his nose!
Needless to say, the “impossible challenge” ought to be attempted carefully and with someone close by just in case. Always use a spotter.
