NEW GODS Director Ava DuVernay Drops Intriguing Casting Hint; Confirms Darkseid And The Furies

Ava DuVernay dropped some new tidbits about the New Gods movie during a Twitter AMA, and while the director didn't reveal anything too major, she did touch on some very interesting topics. Check it out...

New Gods director Ava DuVernay took part in a Twitter AMA earlier tonight, and, not too surprisingly, some of her followers asked for updates on the DC Comics adaptation.

While she didn't get too specific, DuVernay confirmed that both Darkseid and The Furies will appear. This will hardly be a massive revelation to comic book fans, of course, but the filmmaker did also drop an intriguing casting hint.

When asked if she planned to cast anyone from her Netflix miseries When They See Us in the movie, Ava replied that there was a "99.9% chance this will happen."


When They See Us boasted a very strong ensemble cast of relative unknowns and established actors such as John Leguizamo (John Wick) and Michael K. Williams (Boardwalk Empire), so it'll be interesting to see who makes the jump to the DC Films Universe.

DuVernay is still working on the script with Tom King, so she probably hasn't really given any serious thought to casting yet, anyway.

Plot details for New Gods remain under wraps, but rumor has it the story will revolve around Mister Miracle's romance with Big Barda.
