In contrast, Mackie found a sense of creative liberation in his role as John Doe in the Peacock series Twisted Metal. With minimal source material to draw from, the actor and the creative team had the freedom to build the world and characters from scratch.

“With [Twisted Metal], it was like, ‘There’s a guy and a girl go.’ So we were really able to build the world around it,” Mackie shared, highlighting the collaborative process of bringing the video game adaptation to life.

While acknowledging the creative boundaries within the MCU, Mackie expressed appreciation for the opportunity to contribute to such an iconic universe. “It’s an interesting juggle to be a part of that world,” he said, referring to the need to align his portrayal with the established canon while still finding room for personal interpretation.
