Joseph Kosinski 1st feature film was Tron Legacy only made 400 million on a 170 million budget and didn't spawn sequels because of it and he got Oblivion with Tom Cruise as his next film

The designs of the New Gods do tend to be extravagant. Their grim reaper flies around on skis.

I thought that had more to do with them deciding not to do a JL Part 1 & 2 like how Marvel said they were doing Infinity War Part 1 & 2. Especially after the reaction to BvS. They needed some major course correction of some sort.

It's a different genre from AWIT too. Comic book movies have an entirely different set of conventions and tropes than Young Adult adaptions do.

I've been aching for a Fourth World feature for years, but figured it was a pipe dream (with the possible exception of animation). I'd like this to come to fruition, but there's a long laundry list of DCEU entries that don't get traction into some tangible.

We could all use a little more Jack Kirby in our lives.

I should be excited as **** for a New Gods movie, but I am just not. The director doesn’t seem an inspiring choice either, but we will see.

This aint how it works, bald man.

They surely been in talks for awhile now, regardless of her big budget dud. I'm glad she gets another shot at the plate. I also can't wait for Ava to cast minority actors in these roles and see the outcry from fans.

It's soooooo much good stuff. They'd have to focus a film on a sliver of it and I'd be somewhere in a corner *****ing about the lack of the Forever People and Metron.

It'd make for a nice 13 episode series that ran for a few seasons.

On one hand, I did like Selma, and any director who says their favorite superhero is Big Barda might just be the right person for the job.

On the other hand, DC/WB can't even get their original flagship hero right, so they might just find a way to mess this up.

So Ava won't direct BP but would do New Gods for WB/DC? I guess they're giving her 100% creative freedom for her to agree.

I definitely like this. 'New Gods' has enough material to stand on its own. I don't think that they should just be shoehorned into a Justice League film.

Pleasantly surprised. Wasn't expecting this at all. Juicy announcement. Weird that they go out of their way to cut Darkseid out of JL and then turn around and announce a New God's film. Apparently they are commiting to a big lore in the DC Comics stable. Surely Darkseid is going to get a redo.

Hmm. Wonder what the reaction would’ve been if she’d gotten Superman instead.
