This scene is an example of dramatic irony: The audience knows more at this point than Brutus and Cassius know. The audience knows that Antony is going to be very dangerous indeed and that he is going to defeat Brutus and Cassius. The audience knows that Brutus is making a grave mistake here (no pun intended!)
The other kinds of irony are situational irony and verbal irony (sarcasm).
