Ava DuVernay to direct superhero film
    2018-03-19  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

AVA DUVERNAY, director of “Selma” and “A Wrinkle in Time,” is in talks to direct a superhero film based on DC Comics characters, according to reports.

DuVernay, whose other films include the Oscar-nominated documentary “13th,” has been linked to “The New Gods,” based on a comic book created by Jack Kirby.

DuVernay seemed to confirm the news by posting a photo of Kirby on Twitter.

“The New Gods” would be the second major superhero film directed by a woman, after Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman.”

Jenkins, who is currently working on that film’s sequel, revealed this week she attended “A Wrinkle in Time”’s London premiere.

Launched in 1970, “The New Gods” depicts a mythical conflict between the inhabitants of twin planets named New Genesis and Apokolips.

Last year DuVernay named Big Barda, a female warrior from Apokolips, as her favorite superhero.

“A Wrinkle in Time,” a fantasy starring Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon, is the first film with a budget of more than US$100 million to have a black female director.

The film, which had its London premiere earlier this week, is currently the second biggest film at the North American box office, behind “Black Panther.” (SD-Agencies)
