Ava DuVernay, director of Selma and A Wrinkle in Time, is in talks to direct a superhero film based on DC Comics characters, according to reports.
DuVernay, whose other films include the Oscar-nominated documentary 13th, has been linked to The New Gods, based on a comic book created by Jack Kirby.
DuVernay seemed to confirm the news by posting a photo of Kirby on Twitter.
The New Gods would be the second major superhero film directed by a woman, after Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman.
Jenkins, who is currently working on that film’s sequel, revealed this week she attended A Wrinkle in Time’s London premiere.
