Ava DuVernay to direct DC’s ‘New Gods’



This is going to be EPIC.

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.

Charmaine Blake



Marvel Studios’ BLACK PANTHER L to R: Ayo (Florence Kasumba) and Okoye (Danai Gurira) Ph: Film Frame Marvel Studios 2018

Black Panther has officially hit $1 billion worldwide after just four weeks in theaters.

According to a release from Disney, Black Panther is the third-biggest superhero movie domestically, behind The Dark Knight ($534.9 million, and Panther is already at $530.9 as of March 10) and The Avengers ($623.4 million).

With those numbers, Black Panther will easily outstrip The Dark Knight, most likely by the end of Saturday, and it’s pacing ahead of The Avengers Panther has roughly the same domestic gross going into its fourth weekend that Avengers did after its fourth weekend. Panther also has the advantage of opening in February (Avengers and The Dark Knight were spring/summer releases) and enjoying months in theaters with little major competition.

Beyond that, here are a few more badges that Panther wears:

  • #1 February debut ($202M 3-day, $242.1M 4-day), and February release of all time

  • #5 all-time 3-day debut ($202M)

  • #1 Monday of all time ($40.1M)

  • #2 Sunday of all time ($60M)

  • #2 second weekend ($111.6M, one of only 4 films to surpass $100M mark in second weekend)

  • #1 non-holiday third weekend ($66.3M)

Black Panther is now in theaters. Based on these numbers, you probably knew that already.

‘Wonder Woman 2’ casts its Cheetah

It looks like Wonder Woman 2 is assembling its own cast of wonder women. Returning director Patty Jenkins announced Friday via Twitter that indie film actress and Saturday Night Live alum Kristen Wiig will join the sequel.

The final word of that tweet (before Jenkins tags Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot), is crucial. Cheetah is a classic Wonder Woman villain, created by Doctor Psycho. She has multiple aliases which all sound like SNL characters: Priscilla Rich, Deborah Domaine, Barbara Ann Minerva, and Sebastian Ballesteros (but that one’s a man).

Though known for her comedy, Wiig has been known to skew toward dark humor or muted drama in her film roles. as with Girl Most Likely, The Skeleton Twins (with fellow SNL alum Bill Hader), or Hateship, Loveship. An actress that versatile could make Cheetah extremely compelling – or at any rate, better than Ares.

Wonder Woman 2 is due in November 2019.
