Ava DuVernay Pays Tribute To 'New Gods' Creator Jack Kirby

Ava Du Vernay New Gods Ava DuVernay To Direct Jack Kirby Comic Creation 'The New Gods' For Warner Bros, DC
Herman Weaver | 16 March, 2018, 10:49

Her latest project is now sat in second place at the American box office, with A Wrinkle In Time opening in the States last week.

DuVernay's New Gods would be one to watch for, especially that it would be under Hamada.

The story follows the titular New Gods, which are residents of the twin alien planets of New Genesis and Apokolips, and the war between them. New Genesis is a lush green paradise, while Apokolips is a scorched, nightmarish land marked by massive fire pits.

New Gods is just the latest in a long line of planned movies over at Warner Bros. The first example of this was a 1980 Justice League of America storyline, which found the JLA teaming up with the Justice Society to stop Darkseid from replacing Earth-Two (home of the JSA) with his homeworld of Apokolips.

Chelsea show interest in Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey
It's the ideal time in the worldwide break to get it done. "Even if it's the China Cup, you want to win something, " Giggs said. The player himself has suggested he is down the pecking order when it comes to Arsenal resolving contract situations.


The 45-year-old director is the second woman, after Patty Jenkins, to helm a superhero film for Warner Bros. And the villains for this epic crossover were Dark Phoenix, and Darkseid, once again showing how DC was positioning him as their biggest bad.

Now Highfather's forces, led by the fleet-footed Lightray and the rage-filled Orion, must clash with Apokolips' Granny Goodness and her Female Furies, the relentless general Steppenwolf and his Parademons and the bloodthirsty Kalibak in a race to find the Anti-Life Equation before it falls into Darkseid's hands. The New Gods is not expected to have any connection to other DC-branded films, though DuVernay's hiring is in keeping with the company's filmmaker-driven approach.

After departing Marvel in 1970, legendary comics creator Jack Kirby went to rival publisher DC Comics, and soon after started work on the "Fourth World", an ambitious project that spawned a variety of titles including 1971's New Gods. They were introduced in three comic series: New Gods, Forever People, and Mister Miracle.
