NAOMI DC Comics Adaptation In The Works At The CW From NEW GODS Director Ava DuVernay

New Gods director Ava DuVernay is doubling-down on DC, as she's set to develop a small-screen adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and David F. Walker's teen superhero comic series, Naomi, for The CW.

Ava DuVernay is sticking with DC for her next project. The New Gods director is set to develop a small-screen adaptation of recent DC Comics series Naomi for The CW.

DuVernay will team with Arrow writer and co-exec producer Jill Blankenship to write and exec produce the project, which is based on the 2019 teen superhero tale of the same name from writers Brian Michael Bendis and David F. Walker, and artist Jamal Campbell.

The comic follows Naomi McDuffie, a teenage superhero from an alternate Earth with energy-based powers who discovers that she was sent to the Prime Universe to be preserved from Zumbado, the destructive conqueror of her home planet.

The show is expected to focus on "a teen girl’s journey from her small northwestern town to the heights of the multiverse. When a supernatural event shakes her hometown to the core, Naomi sets out to uncover its origins, and what she discovers will challenge everything we believe about our heroes."

DuVernay will exec-produce via Array Filmworks in association with Warner Bros Television. Sarah Bremner and Paul Garnes are also on board as producers.

No word on when production on Naomi is scheduled to begin, but we'll keep you updated. The show will join other recently announced projects Wonder Girl and Black Lightning spinoff, Painkiller, as fresh DC Comics-based content for the network.
