Anthony Mackie is looking to get revenge on Tom Holland and is determined to drag the Spider-Man star to the premiere of Captain America: Brave New World.

Mackie is finally leading his own Marvel Cinematic Universe film with Brave New World, and in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he was asked if he'll be using it as an opportunity to gloat to Holland.

"No," he replied. "He did that on a very public stage, so I'm going to hold that till the premiere. I'm going to make sure that Marvel makes him come to the premiere, and then I'm going to sit him next to me, and I'm going to watch him watch the movie."

This is a moment of redemption for Mackie, who was the subject of Holland's ridicule during a hilarious viral moment at ACE Comic Con in Seattle, Washington in 2018.

"I need to watch this movie," Mackie joked after Holland spoke about his experience on Spider-Man: Homecoming. He confirmed he hadn't seen the film, which was met with jeers from the audience.

"I haven't seen the Falcon m—oh no, there isn't one, sorry," Holland joked.

Mackie laughed off the moment and added, "Well played, sir."

My got his revenge 😂

When Mackie reprised his role as Sam Wilson, a.k.a. the Falcon and later Captain America, in the 2021 Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Holland doubled down on his comments after some suggested he would be eating crow.

"He hasn't got his own movie yet. He got a TV show, but he didn't get his own movie," Holland told Comic Book. "Also, it's called The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, it's not called The Falcon. I saw that online, everyone was like 'Anthony Mackie says Tom Holland's eating his words.' I'm not eating my words. I said, 'there is no Falcon movie.' There isn't one."

Now Mackie does have his own MCU movie with Captain America: Brave New World. It's currently scheduled to hit theaters on Feb. 14, 2025, and sees Mackie's Wilson taking on the title of Cap following the departure of Chris Evans as Steve Rogers in Avengers: Endgame.
