Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time may have disappointed at the box office, but she’s already booked another big-budget project.
Warner Bros. said Thursday that DuVernay will direct The New Gods, a DC Comics property created by the famed comic book artist Jack Kirby. It’s an elaborate science fiction work, part of Kirby’s Fourth World Saga, about two warring alien planets. It debuted in 1971.
