DC’s new superhero

A Wrinkle In Time director DuVernay is in final negotiations with Warner Bros. to direct a new superhero film, The New Gods, based on the classic Jack Kirby comics.

Kirby, known as the co-creator of iconic superheroes like Captain America, set up shop at DC after leaving Marvel behind in the 1970s. He then created his “Fourth World” metaseries which included the New Gods.

Earlier Marvel approached DuVernay to direct Black Panther before hiring Ryan Coogler; DuVernay turned down the offer, citing creative differences.

By the way, seems that Ryan Cooler didn’t let down the audience and Marvel as “Black Panther” crossed the $1 billion milestone in just 26 days after breaking the record for best February opening weekend of all time.

The time-travel fantasy “A Wrinkle In Time” has grossed $42.2 million in its first six days in North America.

Who are the New Gods?

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.
