#TeamWesleySnipes points out that the actor pursued the idea of creating and starring in a screen adaptation of "Black Panther" in the '90s. Though the project stalled out, it ultimately laid the road map for 1998's "Blade."

But "Black Panther" director Ryan Coogler described his film as "the Denzel/Will Smith movie I never got to see.”

Fans say Will Smith would've made a fantastic Wakandan king.

But others stan for Wesley as the ideal '90s T'Challa.
