The Django Unchained director planned for Laurence Fishburne to star as Luke Cage in the Marvel Comics adaptation.
"After Reservoir Dogs, I had considered doing a Luke Cage: Hero for Hire movie," he told MTV.
"[Producer] Ed Pressman owned the rights at that time, and we talked about it. I talked to Larry Fish about being Luke Cage, and he really liked that idea. Then I ended up writing Pulp Fiction."
He has not been tempted to tackle superheroes since.
"My feeling is if I wanted to do something like that, I'd want to create the superhero myself," he said.
Tarantino's closest involvement with a comic book movie was when he directed one scene in Robert Rodriguez's 2005 Sin City adaptation.
He said that he had not been invited back to work on Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
Brian Michael Bendis recently teased a new Heroes for Hire comics with artist Mike Deodato.
