The 2 Avengers Tom Holland Would Choose to Be Stuck on a Desert Island With
Though Tom Holland can currently be seen starring across Robert Pattinson, Sebastian Stan, and Bill Skarsgård in Devil All the Time, he is best known for his ongoing portrayal of Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Peter Parker first appeared in the MCU via Captain America: Civil War, teaming up with mentor and eventual father figure Tony Stark.
Tony Stark and Spidey boast quite the intimate dynamic, and Holland has grown to see Robert Downey Jr. as a mentor in real life. However, Holland wouldn’t choose to be stuck on a desert island with the man behind the billionaire philanthropist.
During an interview with BBC Radio 1, in which Holland answered questions from young fans, the Spider-Man star revealed the Avengers he would choose to be stuck on a desert island with. Who would be the most helpful?
If MCU star Tom Holland was stuck on a desert island with an Avenger, he would want Chris Hemsworth
Holland explained to a young fan why Chris Hemsworth would make an excellent companion on a desert island. He said, “cause he lives in Australia, and he seems like he can handle desert island stuff.” The interviewer sought further explanation, asking about “shelters” and “fishing.” Holland noted that he “wouldn’t have to do any of that stuff,” since Hemsworth would just take control.
Holland then went on to ponder whom he would choose as his second, and he struggled to come up with an answer, noting that Hemsworth “ticks all the boxes.” However, he eventually decided that Dave Bautista, who plays Drax the Destroyer in the MCU, would make a strong addition to the team.

Holland explained that Bautista is “just a great guy,” and that he would have the help of “two beasts” with Bautista and Hemsworth. And, as he said, two strong and ultra-competent individuals are better than one.
While Holland seemed to believe that Hemsworth would suffice as a solo assistant to his desert island voyage, Dave Bautista would bring a little more muscle. Sorry to all the Stark fans out there hoping he would have picked RDJ. Unfortunately, Downey’s famous brunches likely wouldn’t come in handy trapped on an island without access to a grocery store.
