'Avengers' Cast May Reassemble for 'Dungeons & Dragons,' Spider-Man Actor Says: Here's Our Alignment

Tom Holland and Chris Pratt want to assemble the Avengers once more, this time for some tabletop Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying.

The Spider-Man: Far From Home and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 leads together star in the upcoming Pixar movie Onward, in which they play teenage elf brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot. While promoting the film, Holland spoke to IGN about Pratt's love of D&D, and their ongoing plans to host a session of the pen-and-paper roleplaying game with the Avengers cast. Holland himself would be new to the game, which uses dice rolls and character sheets full of specific skill statistics to navigate a fantasy adventure lead by a Dungeon Master—a role presumably reserved for Pratt.

"I haven't, no," Holland said, when asked by IGN whether he had played Dungeons & Dragons. "But Chris and I have been talking about setting up an Avengers D&D session."

Holland didn't reveal who he would invite to play Dungeons & Dragons, or which Avengers cast member would be inclined to playing a tabletop roleplaying game with the 23-year-old actor.

"We actually want to film it, because it would be really fun," Holland said, adding that the theoretical roleplaying session wouldn't be livestreamed.

But while Pratt and Holland coordinating the schedules of Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Brie Larson, Paul Rudd, Don Cheadle, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Zoe Saldana, Anthony Mackie, Tessa Thompson, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel (the only other public D&D fanatic in the bunch), Benedict Wong, Josh Brolin, Letitia Wright and Pom Klementieff to assemble the ultimate Dungeons & Dragons adventuring party sounds like a long shot, it's enough to have us wondering: how the Avengers might align?

Except for the Dungeon Master—who acts like the god of a D&D session, enforcing the rules of the in-game universe—every Dungeons & Dragons adventurer plays with a character sheet, which is chock-full of details about their avatar, whether playing a half-orc druid or a tiefling bard. One of the key considerations a player makes when creating a Dungeons & Dragons character is their creation's "Alignment," which determines the moral or ethical framework that player will use in roleplaying their character.

In the original Dungeons & Dragons, released in 1974, all characters (including NPCs), were either Lawful, Neutral or Chaotic. The game's second edition, 1979's Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, introduced a new dimension, with characters additionally categorized as Good, Neutral or Evil, making for nine possible configurations.

While many other features of Dungeons & Dragons character building remain obscure to non-players, the nine possible alignments have become a popular way to categorize fictional characters and real people outside of the context of tabletop roleplaying. In that spirit, here's our very own Avengers alignment chart.

Character Alignments are tricky things. Debates rage over whether lawful means following the rules of society, or some internal code. In the context of Dungeons & Dragons, a true Neutral character may be active or passive—someone out to serve themselves, who mostly leave other people alone, or someone who strives to maintain balance and the status quo.

Our own Avengers alignment chart took a lot of in-office arguing. Is Loki Chaotic Evil or Chaotic Neutral? Could the Infinity Stones be considered True Neutral? Where would Captain Marvel fall on the chart? Tragically, for Holland and Pratt, Spider-Man and Star-Lord didn't make the cut.
