Anthony Mackie Wants to be Black Panther

Though Disney and Marvel still deny that Black Panther will be the next solo franchise they launch, the interest in the property is at an all time high on the internet.

In an interview with HitFix, Anthony Mackie was asked if he’d been offered the role and he had this to say:

“I was hoping I would be the Incredible Hulk, but that didn’t work out,” Mackie replied, laughing. “I would love to be a part of [‘Black Panther’]. I love Black Panther and I love the story behind it. It would be cool to be a part of it.”

What do you think? Mackie seems like a good fit for the role to us.
