The Marvel Cinematic Universe is like a big onscreen superhero family that just keeps on growing with each film. As is the case in many families, some of the younger, newer members get picked on and teased by their older (and in this case, more tenured) co-stars. This is especially true for Spider-Man actor Tom Holland, who, as the MCU's youngest hero, has to deal with some older brother-type teasing from his fellow heroes, especially Falcon actor Anthony Mackie. But every once in a while, the little brother fights back. So when Anthony Mackie recently revealed that he still hasn't seen Spider-Man: Homecoming, Tom Holland was ready with a zinger in return. Check it out below:
Anthony Mackie is hilarious here at ACE Comic Con (via dea on Twitter), dunking on Tom Holland by brushing off Spider-Man: Homecoming with an air of 'pssh, why would I see that?' and throwing major shade at the hero's lauded MCU return. Little did Anthony Mackie know that Tom Holland had one in the chamber. You can see the wheels turning in Tom Holland's head in the video, as he too was either formulating his comeback or was trying to decide whether or not to say it. After all, not thinking before he speaks in the past has been a foe equal to the Sinister Six for the young actor. Thankfully, proving he really is Spider-Man, Tom Holland lets loose with a quip remarking on the non-existent Falcon movie, like saying 'at least I have a movie to ignore.'
Anthony Mackie has said he doesn't need a solo movie in the past, but this retort is still a stinger. Spidey may not be the most powerful or most seasoned hero in the MCU, but he always punches above his weight. Spider-Man is still relatively new to the MCU, so Tom Holland hasn't acted opposite a lot of the other heroes for lengthy amounts of time. He has mainly interacted with Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark. But given the fun, brotherly dynamic between Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie, I would be all in for Falcon making an appearance in the next Spider-Man movie, like he did in the first Ant-Man. These two didn't interact in Avengers: Infinity War, as Spidey was on the Titan team and Falcon was on the Wakanda team, but maybe they'll get a chance to team-up and rib each other in the future.
We now know a little bit more about what the future for Tom Holland's Spider-Man will entail too. Notorious blabbermouth Tom Holland revealed the title of the next Spider-Man movie this past weekend to be Spider-Man: Far From Home. Kevin Feige has said this title has multiple meanings, so let the speculation begin. We also know that Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to play the villain Mysterio in the film. Much of Phase 4 remains a mystery, but as the first film out of the gate post-Avengers 4, we are slowly gaining more clarity about Peter Parker's sophomore solo adventure in the MCU.
