Ava DuVernay is set to join the DC movie family with Warner Bros announcing her as the director of The New Gods.
The New Gods came into existence after the world of the gods of classic mythology were destroyed during Ragnarok. The deities inhabit two planets: one is New Genesis, a lush paradise, and the other Apokolips, a hellish planet. If you only know DC from TV, film or video games then you may recognise the name Darkseid who is the ruler of Apokolips.
Kario Salem (Chasing Mavericks) will write the script working closely with DuVernay.
