Before Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7, Tom Holland has a score to settle with Thor — and he’s using the Norse god’s own hammer to do it.

Earlier this month, Chris Hemsworth shared a “little secret Avengers rehearsal” on Instagram, where the actor came across action figures for many of his Marvel superhero counterparts, himself not included. Angered by once again being left out (see Captain America: Civil War), Hemsworth smashed the figures off the table with his trusty weapon, Mjolnir. But when it came to Spider-Man, he dismissed the web-slinger with just a small push, saying, “He’s just a kid, he can fall over.”

Now, Holland has gotten up and gotten his revenge. “I’m going to do a similar thing to Chris Hemsworth, just without the crazy good looks, Australian accent, and big biceps,” he says in a video for EW.

Sitting in front of his own collection of Marvel action figures, he uses a much smaller version of Thor’s hammer to get his payback and knock Hemsworth’s character down. “What I know is that I can also wield the hammer,” he says, despite gracefully not catching it when it’s thrown to him. “Who’s the kid now Thor?”

To see who Holland says he’s scared of and who he deems the “A-team,” watch the full video above.
