I remember years ago, Wesley Snipes was trying to get one of these made.
I doubt Marvel/Disney will go this route, but I'd like to see a blacksploitation-satire approach to the film sort of like Black Dynamite. Give it a 70's vibe like all those grindhouse homages that came out over the last few years. Then again, maybe that would be a better idea for a Power Man & Iron Fist movie. It might be more appropriate but it also seems cliche. I kind of like the idea of mixing costumed superheroes with 70's styled action.
especially since Black Panther was never a ghetto, blacksploitation character. I think I remember seeing you on comicvine so I assume you are aware that he is an African monarch who didn't even travel to America until he was an adult.
Yeah, I know who he is. I was an avid reader of the Fantastic Four when I collected, so obviously I ran into him. It's just that after the failure of the Green Lantern movie I was thinking about how to mix up the types of superhero movies being made. Since the GL movie was originally more of a comedy with Jack Black, I was wondering if all superhero comic movies need to be the same. Basically, all of them have had the same tone and style since the early 2000s. The Nolan films go a darker, but everything else is just a match for Spiderman and the X-Men. I'm not endorsing a return to the Joel Schumacher fiascoes, but I'd like for a little more variety among the repertoire. My fear is that since Marvel seems to have found a winning formula, they're going to beat it to death.
