Spida is excited to welcome Spider-Man to Utah.

FanX announced Tuesday that Marvel's "Spider-Man," actor Tom Holland, will be at the Salt Lake city convention on Sept. 6 and 7.

Though many shared their excitement on Twitter shortly after the announcement, only one person's excitement, in particular, stood out the most: Utah Jazz point guard and shooting guard Donovan Mitchell.

The NBA player retweeted FanX's announcement, adding the fact that Holland's appearance just so happens on his 23rd birthday.

"On my birthday," Mitchell tweeted, followed by three widened-eyes emojis and three covered-laughing emojis.

This isn't the first time that the two spiders met.

For an ESPN spot promoting Marvel's "Spider-Man: Far From Home" and Mitchell's Adidas D.O.N. 1 sneakers, the two men made a parody of the popular Spider-Man pointing meme.

Mitchell's nickname was attached to his basketball abilities since he was kid and it became national alias after winning the 2018 NBA dunk contest and being a contender for Rookie of the Year that season. Holland was announced to be the latest Spider-Man back in 2015 and made his official appearance as the superhero in "Captain America: Civil War" in 2016. His solo movie "Spider-Man: Homecoming" was released in 2017.
