WWE Superstar Titus O'Neil is always known to be the kindest and most charitable wrestlers working for the professional wrestling company. In the past, he's paid food for the homeless among other noble deeds.

Now Titus O'Neil wants to help pay for 500 kids that don't have enough money to see Black Panther to watch the film in the cinema. He is targeting kids in the 13 to 18 year old age bracket.

The reason O'Neil wants to do this is for black kids to finally see a superhero film with an African American main actor.

O'Neil says he did not have the luxury of idolizing back superheroes growing up so Black Panther could be a big inspiration to the new generation.

O'Neil talked about this inspirational act during an interview he had with the Tampa Bay Times. You can read his comments on the matter down below.

I'm 40 years old and I've never seen a Marvel character that looked like me, as an African-American male. This will be the first time I've seen a superhero on screen that looks like me and I want kids to not only be able to see superheroes on the screen but also to view themselves as superheroes. If they see that on screen, then maybe they can be the next doctor or lawyer or president, whatever they can be. This could be a great teaching moment if we can get them into theaters.

The kids he is targeting usually come from low income families so they do not usually have the luxury of watching a movie in the cinema.

His charitable act will hopefully make the kids smile and give them hope to live prosperous live in the future.

O'Neil is paying for the kids to see Black Panther in cinemas around Tampa, Brandon and Wesley Chapel.

He has also made a GoFundMe page along with Joy McDowell to raise even more money for additional kids to watch the inspirational film.
