Ava Du Vernay New Gods Ava DuVernay to Direct DC's 'The New Gods'

It's unclear exactly which characters DuVernay will incorporate into her movie, but there are plenty of opportunities to push the boundaries of what comic book fans expect. While Deadline claims that The New Gods has "no connection to the other DC worlds being exploited for film right now by Warner Bros", Variety's article states that the movie will be part of the DC Extended Universe. The New Gods will have a similar budget, and now "there is no connection to the [studio's] other DC worlds". Unlike recent DC fare, this is a freestanding world created and designed by Kirby back in 1971, not long after the prolific comic legend had exited Marvel.

After making history as the first woman of color to helm a $100 million-plus live-action film in A Wrinkle In Time, Ava DuVernay will continue to play in the event film sandbox. It sounds like that's how she prefers to work: A Wrinkle in Time scribe Jennifer Lee told me that DuVernay keeps her writers very involved during production.

The movie marks the second major superhero tentpole directed by a woman, following another DC property: Patty Jenkins's "Wonder Woman".
