Anthony Mackie’s Superhero Wish

Anthony Mackie may be the Captain America of the current era, but what he truly wants to be is Panthro from ThunderCats. 

“If I could play another superhero, it would be Panthro from ThunderCats—the blue dude. Yeah, I’m big on ThunderCats—that’s my one superhero.”

Anthony Mackie Being A Real Life Superhero

The hurricanes affecting New Orleans, hometown of Anthony Mackie have been growing in concern for everyone including the actor himself. Ever since he was a kid, Mackie had been fixing roofs with his dad in 7th Ward, New Orleans. General Aniline & Film, better known as GAF, has decided to partner up with the actor in order to fix 500 roofs of the city, starting from Anthony Mackie’s own district of 7th Ward.

“GAF is training young people in the roofing trade so that, one day, that person can provide for their family or lend an extra hand when needed. And if there’s another disaster, we as a community can step up and help ourselves.”

Blue tarp covered roofs have been a common thing to see when flying over the city which Mackie wishes to change as although many may not be able to afford the proper housing roofs, the actor can solve such a problem with this initiative. Starting from old roofs to new ones, Anthony Mackie wishes to help the people he grew up with, let his family see how far he’s come both as an actor and as a person.
