Ava DuVernay To Direct DC Superhero’s  ‘New Gods’
After making history as the first Black woman to direct a big budget Disney film with ‘A Wrinkle In Time’, Ava DuVernay is reportedly gearing up to bring DC comics, ‘New Gods’ to the big screen.

According to Variety, DuVernay will direct ‘New Gods’ for Warner Bros. as part of the studio’s DC Extended Universe. “New Gods,” based on the DC Comics series of the same name, is aimed at creating a new universe of properties for the studio. Created and designed by Jack Kirby, the comic was first released in 1971.

The New Gods are natives of the twin planets of New Genesis and Apokolips. New Genesis is an idyllic planet ruled by the Highfather, while Apokolips is a dystopia filled with machinery and fire pits ruled by the tyrant Darkseid. New Genesis and Apokolips call themselves gods, living outside of normal time and space in a realm known as the Fourth World.
