The producer and director Ava DuVernay been talking a little bit about what to expect about New Gods in a chat with fans on Twitter!
Even without an announced release date, the film seems to have gone into pre-production on Warner Bros. Launched in the 70s, the first edition of the comics of New Gods was created by Jack Kirby.
Duvernay and Tom King co-sign the script for the film based on the comics.
In the chat, the director confirmed that the characters of Darkseid, and the Female Furies will show up in the movie.
Darkseid was presented earlier, and very quickly, in Justice League (2017), and has been cited as one of DC’s greatest villains in theaters.
The New Gods are characters that live on two different planets called New Genesis and Apokolips and are described as an immortal race with opposite motivations.
Darkseid he is the great ruler and dictator of Apokolips and who wishes to dominate the entire universe.
In the comics, Female Furies are characters are an elite military division formed only by women and commanded by Grandma Kindness.
All women in the other military divisions of Apokolips dream of joining the Furies team.
The author also commented that the character of the Great Bard will also be in the film. Check it out here.
The casting process has not started, but DuVernay has kept an open mind for nominations.
The script for the film has been written and is “in progress”.
