Ava DuVernay is confirmed to direct DC’s new superhero movie New Gods and fans of the comic are losing their damn minds.

Reported by Variety, A Wrinkle in Time director DuVernay has signed on to steer the ship for the new DC Extended Universe epic, based on the Jack Kirby-created comic.

It’ll be the second DC superhero film to be directed by a woman, following the Patty Jenkins-helmed box office smash Wonder Woman. 

While DuVernay’s current Disney film, A Wrinkle in Time, underperformed at the U.S. box office, she’s smashed it elsewhere. Selma made her the first black female director to be nominated for a Golden Globe, she was nominated for an Oscar for her documentary 13th, and she took home the directing award at Sundance for her second feature film Middle of Nowhere. Boom.

New Gods was created in 1971 by Kirby. It centers on two planets: New Genesis, an arcadian planet ruled by Highfather, and Apokolips, an apocalyptic dystopia ruled by the formidable Darkseid. 

DuVernay paired the news with a sweet Twitter tribute to Kirby, who passed away in 1994.

Fans lost their minds over the announcement.

Our first look at the live-action Titans TV series is here, and it looks like dark times are ahead for our heroes.

Based on the DC comics, the show stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy.

Titans will be the first show to premiere exclusively on DC Universe, the new streaming service that’ll bring together all your favorite DC comics(!), films, and shows.

But it won’t be the last. Titans will be followed by other DC Universe series including Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing. Because you didn’t have enough superhero shows to keep up with already.

Aquaman looks like a true fish lord in first movie poster

Published

If anyone was worried that the upcoming Aquaman movie wouldn’t have a bunch of scary fish in it, worry no longer.

The very first Aquaman poster was revealed Monday and really puts the “aqua” in Aquaman, featuring Jason Momoa as Aquaman with his signature trident surrounded by a whole bunch of scary, deadly fish (and a few mammals and reptiles too).

The poster, of course, features an underwater scene and appears to give us a glimpse at the kingdom of Atlantis, which Aquaman is the rightful king of. Aside from that, this first poster doesn’t really give us any clues we didn’t already know or expect about the movie.

What is he doing with all those fish? How does his hair stay like that underwater? Why is there a bright light above Aquaman’s head? Hopefully we find out soon.

The tweet that accompanied the poster teases a trailer, which will be dropping to the public on Saturday after it airs exclusively at Comic-Con this week.

Before the poster was revealed, Aquaman director James Wan gave fans a little teaser of the upcoming trailer, showing a frame with what appears to be Aquaman commanding a whale.
