Before the existence of the MCU, a Black Panther film was in the works around the early 1990s. The film was going to star Wesley Snipes, the director was either going to be directed by either Mario Van Peebles or John Singleton, and screenwriter Terry Hayes was signed on to write the script.


While there was no confirmed plot, Snipes discussed ideas with Singleton and Hayes.

Singleton's version: The film would have T'Challa's father convincing his son to join the Black Panther Party while having the advanced technology of Wakanda being excluded. Other than that, not much is known.

Haye's version: The film would be about a war in Wakanda breaking out and T'Challa would be place on a boat and shipped to an unknown country. Later on in the film, T'Challa would be attacked on an elavator and decides to head back to Wakanda. Other than that, not much is known.
