John Singleton confirms to Blackfilm that there is a race to see if he’s going to do his adaptations of Marvel comics “Luke Cage” or “Black Panther” first.
Singleton says “I really wanted to do both of those pictures. I’ve always been a fan of Marvel comics, so it depends. I can do ‘Cage’ or ‘Black Panther’. I’ve just been approached about doing ‘Black Panther’.”
So what’s holding Cage up? “If you put a black face on it, they think it’s black thing; but yet we have all these movies that have come up and whenever they any black people in it, they make all this money. That’s the thing that’s holding ‘Luke Cage’ up. They think it’s a small superhero movie.”
