Wasn't she on tap for that before? She even said her fave hero was Big Barda? I assume she certainly proved she can handle sfx, and seeing how it got to top 5, DC could do worse. Hope they get back GTD for JL Dark. Ehh, in this universe, probably not though.
Well, I guess if DC is really going to try and do the New Gods right, then a top-notch creative team is definitely in order .The film will be written by Emmy-winning writer Kario Salem.
I'm not very familiar with his work, but apparently a lot of the things he's written have critical acclaim, so I'd say this is really good news.
The truce between New Genesis and Apokolips could be the foundation of the story. Orion investigates a violation, i.e. Steppenwolf going to Earth, but discovers an even bigger conspiracy afoot - maybe the Anti-Life Equation but not necessarily - and they quickly move away from the movie canon and go "cosmic" as you say. I'd love to see the Forever People shine. I'd love to see them full on reference Kirby similar to Waititi incorporating Kirby designs in Thor: Ragnarok.I admit, I'm not the biggest Fourth/Fifth World fan. I know what I know from the DCAU and a few readups. First off, this film should have nothing to do with earth. This really is DC's chance to go "cosmic" without the baggage of the past few films. I do hope to see them concentrate on Orion and his conflict with Darkseid, Mr. Miracle with Granny, and maybe even the Forever People as well as Forager's insect people at war with Apokolips. Yeah, too much in one film, which worries me. They need a singular purpose to this. Perhaps if they do Flashpoint, it opens a rift in outer space and it is known by both High Father and Darkseid.
Yeah, that's why I feel this is kinda daunting task. Seeing how there is no script, or outline, I wouldn't be surprised it she drops out. Seems they want to explain what they already setup with the Fourth World aspects of the DC universe. Much like Marvel's GOTG and soon FOX with X-Men Dark Phoenix. I'm concerned with how vast this is. For a first film, we probably need the bare necessities; specifically Apokolips. I think DuVernay might be better suited for a Mr. Miracle solo film, seeing her affinity for Barda. They have a chance to do a genre "escape" film in this. Shawshank, Escape From Alcatraz, Escape from New York, Papillion, The Great Escape, even Chicken Run.Ava DuVernay has gone on record that Big Barda is her favorite Superhero, so I imagine her relationship with Scott will likely be one of the central elements of the film .
Yeah, certainly not. Honestly, I used to like the idea of Armie Hammer, but can we find a Big Barda bigger than him?Well, all power to him, but I don't know if I can see him as Scott Free .
