Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan simply cannot stop making fun of Tom Holland's on-set behavior. Mackie and Stan spent a brief time on the set of Captain America: Civil War with the 21-year-old rising star, who played Peter Parker/Spider-Man and will reprise the role in Spider-Man: Homecoming. But all three will join up again in next summer's Avengers: Infinity War, which will bring together all of the biggest stars in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
However, it appears that the time Mackie and Stan have spent working with Holland hasn't exactly been the easiest experience. Although they're likely just teasing Holland when asked about him in recent interviews to promote Infinity War, it sounds like they've had to deal with some ... interesting on-set behavior for a relatively unproven 21-year-old actor.
As revealed through a compilation by YouTube user Shana Fierce that you can watch above, Mackie and Stan have not held back on Holland when asked about the young actor while doing their various press junkets for Infinity War. Most of their remarks, which are in jest, tend to focus on diva-type behavior by Holland related to his diet and other aspects of his day-to-day work on the set. In what appears to be a Screen Rant exclusive reaction, Mackie tells Don Kaye that Holland is simply "a little asshole."
Mackie and Stan also joke about Holland's thick British accent, which can be hard to understand for those who aren't used to his dialect. They describe him as a "problem" and a "detriment" because of the things he does on set -- even compared to an actor like Robert Downey Jr., who if anyone has earned the right to act that way. They make comments about Holland's "handler," "base camp," and even his excessive amount of hair gel and mousse.
The clip ends with Stan at a recent event, deadpanning that he needs security to keep him away from Holland. In written form, their comments may sound like they're the real jerks here, but give them credit for remaining committed to the bit, and for sticking with the tongue-in-cheek jokes.
Of course, these comments could also concern fans who might take Mackie and Stan too seriously. But it's clear these comments were made in jest and making Avengers: Infinity War with Holland isn't as much of a nightmare as Mackie and Stan make it seem.
