CAPTAIN AMERICA Star Anthony Mackie Reveals Dream THUNDERCATS Role And He Won't Let Anyone Else Play Him

Captain America: New World Order star Anthony Mackie has revealed that, outside of Sam Wilson, his dream superhero role would be to play Panthro in a Thundercats movie. Read on for further details...

It's an exciting time for Anthony Mackie. While he has a lot of different projects in the works - including the upcoming Twisted Metal TV series - it was in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier we saw him become the MCU's new Captain America. 

He'll return as the hero in 2024's Captain America: New World Order, but it turns out there's another dream role that Mackie is hoping will eventually come his way. Talking to Men's Journal, Mackie revealed that he wants to be the one to bring Panthro to life in an eventual Thundercats movie. 

Asked which superhero he'd like to play if not Sam Wilson, the actor responded, "Definitely Hulk. Since I was a kid, I'd always wanted to be The Incredible Hulk."

"But now, 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," Mackie continued. "If they ever make that movie and I'm not him, I’m shutting that shit down."

The Thundercats animated TV series premiered in 1985 and followed the title heroes as they battled the evil forces of Mumm-Ra on Third Earth following the destruction of their home, Thundera. Running for 130 episodes, it's gained a cult following and has since returned both as a comic book and a couple of short-lived TV shows. 

As for Panthro, the warrior is the chief mechanic/engineer and pilot for the ThunderCats. 

There continue to be rumblings about a live-action movie, though it hasn't materialised yet. Mackie is clearly keen to be part of that, though, so here's hoping whichever is the latest studio to take a crack at the franchise keeps him in mind. He clearly won't be happy if someone else gets that Panthro role, anyway! 

Captain America: New World Order arrives in theaters on May 3, 2024.
