    Don't read too much into it. I'd prefer to see both Cage and Iron Fist, though.

    i don't see it. he should have picked Michael Jai White for Cage and saved Fishburne for Moses Magnum or Tombstone.

    White was awful young, then, and he'd only been Guy In Fight Who Dies #3 in most of his roles.

    And, what "saved"? You don't save Cowboy Curtis for later, you front and center the man.

    That said, I'm glad things went the way they did, overall. Be a shame to lose Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown for a Power Man movie. Especially, as I'm sure this would've been, an R-rated Power Man movie.

    ??? being the villain of the piece would be front and center. i was suggesting Moses Magnum as the villain. of course, i think Delroy Lindo would probably have done a better job of it. White's youth (he's only 6 years younger than Fishburne) would be a plus since Luke Cage wasn't that old when he went to prison.

    Michael Jai White was Spawn before he was in Universal Soldier the Return.

    I'm sure a Tarentino Cage movie back then would have been Shaft with super powers, or a Shaft parody/homage with super powers. It might have been good. It certainly would have been interesting.

    Fishburne actually looked great in the early 90s. This would have been real interesting to see.

    1992 special effects might not of been good enough to do Luke justice.

    Like what? Power Man is a normal looking guy, what kind of things do you think they wouldn't have been able to do back in 92?

    Yeah, in 95, which is the first big part I ever remember seeing him in. He's got like some little tiny role in Universal Soldier, I don't even remember if he says much of anything...or anything. Fishburne looked more like Luke Cage back then anyways, and he's a better actor.

    Badass fights involving super strength? Oh I'm sure they could do it, just not that they'd do it well.

    Wouldn't they just be fist fights? You can sell badass fist fights by just making environments that smash apart, and if you want, people that smash apart...all which could have been done in the 90s.
