For those who haven't been following the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan have been co-stars for a while as part of Captain America's team/sidekicks. 

Stan plays Bucky Barnes, also known as the Winter Soldier, who is as ancient as the Steve Rogers himself, who is ably played by the very hunky Chris Evans. Anthony Mackie is the Falcon, who joins the Avengers when the Captain is unfrozen from the ice and starts to regain his footing. 

So why did Mackie feel a tad horrified about his long-time co-star?

Currently, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are reprising their roles as the Winter Soldier and Falcon in the eponymously named series "The Falcon and The Winter Soldier," picking up on the storyline after Captain America grows old, as shown in "Avengers: Endgame" and ostensibly passes way.

While Stan is giving his physical best to the show, he went one step ahead to promote one of his new movies, "Monday," and decided to let it all hang out, as is visible in the post he shared on Instagram, below. 

That's interesting, but hardly horrifying, no?

There are plenty of actors who don't get along but manage to create cool onscreen chemistry, which can push a show to great success. 

So is it the same with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan? Well, the duo do get along fine...

Wrote Mackie, "Two guys walk into a bar... Finally at the final episode and can’t think of a better guy to have gone on this ride with. #falconandwintersoldier.

To this Stan replied with a heartfelt, "Anthony".

Clearly, they get along like a house on fire.

So what did Stan do that "horrified" Mackie?
