Ava DuVernay Confirms Villain Darkseid in DC’s New Gods

8/1/19 12:24PM

One of our favorite directors Ava DuVernay has a new project and gave us a few teasers!

DuVernay had a Q&A on Tuesday on Twitter with #AskAva, and the director answered some questions from fans.

Not only is DuVernay going to be filming Jack Kirby’s classic DC’s comic New Gods, but the filmaker is also set to bring back villains Darkseid and the Furies in the upcoming Warner Bros. Film!

The inclusion of Darkseid and the Furies has fans wondering what are other characters or ideas the director might bring to the film. 

DuVernay did not reveal who will be cast to be playing these characters or who will be cast in the film. 

DuVernay’s Netflix series When They See Us was recently nominated for 16 Emmys for outstanding limited series, as well as outstanding lead actor in a limited series for Jharrel Jerome, and outstanding lead actress in a limited series for Niecy Nash and Aunjanue Ellis.

No released date has yet been set for New Gods. As we get in more information, we will keep you updated!
