DC's New Gods coming to the screen, Ava DuVernay directing

Warner Bros has roped in "A Wrinkle in Time" helmer Ava DuVernay to direct the superhero epic "New Gods". The New Gods doesn't have a writer yet, but Deadline says the studio "will quickly set a screenwriter who'll craft the narrative and work closely with DuVernay".

Director Ava Duvernay attends the European premiere of Disney's "A Wrinkle In Time" at BFI IMAX on March 13, 2018 in London.

Billions of years ago, a cataclysm split the planet Urgrund in two, forming the twin planets of New Genesis, a sunlit utopia, and Apokolips, an industrialized wasteland.

New Gods is also known as the Fourth World and was published in the 70s as a trilogy, namely, New Gods, Forever People, and Mister Miracle. Barda's abilities and take-charge attitude even allowed her to become the leader of the Female Furies, a ferocious and powerful group of warriors who served as the personal guard to Apokolips's tyrannical ruler, Darkseid.

Original Story: A year ago, Super Bomberman R launched as an exclusive launch title for the Nintendo Switch. Silent Hill's Pyramid Head which joined the cast of Super Bomberman R back in June 2017 .

Big Barda is one of the New Gods, which is part of DC's Extended Universe. "New Gods", based on DC Comics' comic book series of the same name, is aimed at creating a new universe of properties for the studio. By the late '80s and early 90s, The New Gods would receive their own title again, as would Mister Miracle. So when the forces of Apokolips attacked Earth-2 in the pages of our Earth-2 comic, they were the same forces that are now invading Earth Prime in "Darkseid War".

In the late 2000s, DC made a decision to kill of the New Gods, in the appropriately titled Death of the New Gods mini-series. They would be reborn again in DC's New 52 initiative, when Darkseid and his parademon army were the first villains to square off against the newly formed Justice League.

What do you think about this move from DC?

There's also the question of how New Gods will connect to the rest of the DCEU. Let us know down below in the comments.
