I think it would've made a big difference. I was surprised at how the citizens were convinced by Antony right after they were honoring Brutus. I think it had to do with the order. If someone else, like Cassius had given a speech right after Antony, I think the citizens would have been convinced again to go against Antony. The key was that Antony's words were the last words the citizens heard. So that was their final opinion. If Brutus went after Antony, things would've turned out different.
I honestly think Brutus shouldn't have called out Antony after his speech. But then again, maybe it was destined to turn out this way.

I think the world would totally change had Antony spoken first and Brutus last. We know these people. And we know the commoners. They are the most stupid, narrow minded, pathetic excuses of NPCs that have ever existed in any form of media, ever. And it's sad to acknowledge that they symbolize how we are so easily manipulated. So obviously, they'd have listened to Brutus and Octavian would never have become the emperor.

I believe that if Antony has spoken first, Brutus would not have gained the chance to speak. Since Antony's true intentions were going against the conspirators. He would have accomplished his goals first and wouldnt have had a chance to speak later.
well, i don't think so because if Anotny did the speech first, Brutus was probably in near by the place where Antony talks for do the speech after Antony. Then probably he would see the Antony's speech, and make him to stop the speech. Also even if Brutus let Antony talks, probably Brutus would say like the old leader who tried to conquer the Rome, and here is the new leader who would lead the Roman citizens in the better way. like that. And citizens are easily change their mind.
