We always knew that if Netflix picked Altered Carbon up for a second season, Joel Kinnaman wouldn’t be reprising the role of protagonist Takeshi Kovacs. That’s because the sci-fi series, based on the novels by Richard K. Morgan, takes place in a future where human consciousness has been digitized and can be uploaded into various bodies. As such, Takeshi’s story takes place over the span of several centuries and many bodies (or “sleeves”), and his next one will take the form of Marvel star Anthony Mackie.
Even as Marvel’s Iron Fist finally completed the sequence of Netflix heroes that will bring us The Defenders team-up, certain fans will never give up hope that the four could join the larger collective of cinematic Avengers. Sadly, The Falcon is none-too-keen on such a crossover, as Anthony Mackie dismisses Marvel’s TV heroes as “different universes, different worlds.”
Hunk Anthony Mackie is critically best known for his role as Sergeant JT Sanborn in 2009′s ‘The Hurt Locker.‘ We best know him, though, for his big beautiful eyes, great smile and great style.
The rising star showed up in this year’s ‘The Adjustment Bureau’ and has a bunch of projects in the works. Whether he’s in a full tuxedo or workout gear, this hottie has us seriously salivating.
