Regardless of how much money Iron Man (2008) or The Avengers (2012) or Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) has made at the worldwide box office, let us never forget the single most important moment of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.
No, I’m not talking about Tony Stark’s universe saving sacrifice in Avengers: Endgame (2019), I’m talking about the time that Tom Holland performed Umbrella…
…in front of lots of people…
…while dressed as Rihanna!
This did take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, didn’t it?
Are you sure?
Wasn’t there a moment in one of the Spider-Man films, where Tom took on Thanos while dressed in a corset?
Oh… I must be misremembering then.
Anyway, let’s just remind ourselves of the Tom/‘Umbrella’ moment once again.
The moment took place on an episode of Lip Sync Battle. It was an episode in which Tom Holland competed against fellow Spider-Man star, Zendaya.
With Tom’s dance background, as well as his self deprecating humour (i.e. his ability to not take himself too seriously), he stole the show.
His performance remains one of the best moments on Lip Sync Battle and the one of the best moments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe… even if it wasn’t actually a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
