NEW GODS Movie Taps Comic Writer Tom King To Co-Write Screenplay With Director Ava DuVernay

We recently found out that Tom King's run on Batman was to come to an end prematurely, and now news has broke that he;ll be co-writing the scrip for Warner Bros.'New Gods movie with director Ava DuVernay.

The New Gods movie has found a co-writer, and it's one fans of DC Comics' current Batman run will be very familiar with.

Tom King (Mister Miracle, Swamp Thing, Nightwing, The Vision) will pen the script for the upcoming film with its director Ava DuVernay. The news was first reported by The Wrap before being confirmed via Twitter by DuVernay herself.


It's been a while since we had any New Gods updates, and the fact that King - who won an Eisner Award for his work on Mister Miracle - is going to be involved with bringing Jack Kirby's creations to the big screen should please fans of the mega-powerful characters.

Plot details remain a mystery, but there have been rumors that the story will revolve around Miracle's romance with Big Barda.
