Check out video below featuring Jacob Tremblay and Anthony Mackie at the Spririt Awards where it seems the 7-year-old star of Room can’t realize the difference between Mackie and his fictitious Marvel counterpart Falcon.
“It’s an honor to be here celebrating the best independent cinema, but an even greater honor to be standing here beside my all-time favorite hero,” Tremblay said.
Mackie replied back “we’re having a Santa Claus issue” with the two continuing to joke about Falcon.
Anthony Mackie is set to return as Falcon for May’s Captain America: Civil War.

“Captain America: Civil War” has a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
