The film couldn’t work out due to difference in creative visions for the project.
Singleton Was Once Supposed To Direct ‘Black Panther’
“I laid on him my vision of the film being closer to what you see now: the whole world of Africa being a hidden, highly technically advanced society, cloaked by a force field, Vibranium,” Snipes said. “John was like, ‘Nah! Hah! Hah! See, he’s got the spirit of the Black Panther, but he is trying to get his son to join the [civil rights activist] organization. And he and his son have a problem, and they have some strife because he is trying to be politically correct and his son wants to be a knucklehead.'”
Ultimately, Black Panther was helmed by Ryan Coogler and went on to become a huge international success.
